Sporty And Economical — This Cobalt is fast, responsive, easy to handle, and gets good gas mileage. Low maintenance keeps this vehicle very economical. There's not much room for passengers and the trunk is small. This car is perfect for students or someone on the go!

Pros

engine is fantastic shifts fantastic handling is good for fwd

Cons

stock brakes terrible , gms1 tune was done wrong

25

Great Car For What It Is — the cobalt ss is a great car. even stock. the biggest issue is the stock brakes are terrible. i replaced them with hawk pads and r1 concept rotors and steel brake lines. Shifting is as good as it gets rivaling a acura integra. The dealer messed up the gms1 tune by installing the wrong o-rings on the Tmap sensors which made the car run poorly. All in all a great car with tons of features like the RPD which is a blast to use due to the multifunction capability. only bad thing is cheap build quality with plastic everywhere.

Sports Car — Very powerful, good handling and moderately priced sports car. Great gas mileage - up to 30 miles per gallon on the freeway. Easy to work on and parts are economical compared to comparable cars with with similar agility. The Brembo brakes up front allow for extremely good stopping power and the 5 speed manual allows for sporty driving from virtually any gear / speed.

Pros

AMAZING car for the price, true tuner sports car.

Cons

it was front wheel drive and i didnt opt to get the Limited slip differential

09 Coballt Ss Turbo — I loved this car to death until I sold it for a rear wheel drive sports car. The brakes were amazing with the large brembo front brakes, the steering was amazing with the sport tuned suspension, the performance was ridiculous with the 2.0L LNF turbocharged motor, the interior was sporty and sleek. I owned this car for 3 years and put 22,000 miles on it. I put a cold air intake, intercooler piping, and full catless exhaust and got it tuned making 310whp and 383wtq reliably. for the price you cant get much better of a performance car than this. I have never owned a more fun car. and the stock sound system was great with the 8 inch stock pioneer subwoofer. if you get a chance get it.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros

Stage 1 is stupid fast. Decent mileage for eating other cars that are meant to be fast.

Cons

Ugly cheap interior, exterior could have used a couple revamps to make it look better.

Fastest, Best Handling, Practical, And Affordable Car Out There. — I bought a stage one yesterday! I am loving it. I am a little scared something might go, but am going to try to not rod it too much, just here and there for fun and to get the feel, or when some boys in "fast cars" need to be shown. The seats are comfortable, although I wish they had more leather than mesh, and the interior is a joke for quality. My 01 Hyundai Tiburon seems to have better feeling interior quality. The first time I felt the turbo spool up and release all that power I was hooked. The supercharged versions were fun, but this is a whole new level especially how they fixed the wheel hop issues and tightened the suspension even more. I absolutely love the car. Canada sucks though (Alberta specifically), and I am not allowed to have tinted front windows, but it looks gorgeous with the black colour of the car!!! Just amazing, custom headlights HIDs as well, custom tailights that resemble the nissan gtr, and this thing is a head turner. Customed exhaust as well sounds great with the turbo. Just loving this freaking car right now. Fingers crossed something does not go wrong with it. And its been getting 9 litre per 100 k when driven nice, not too bad for the power its packing. Good on Chevy for the performance, bad on Chevy for the crap interior quality and no redesign when it was overdue after the first year!!! onto one month now. holding up great. underrated for capabilities, by many, broke the plastic pull out drawer by wheel needs an armrest, and suspension squeaks when freezing temps out. need a track to get to to fully appreciate the car!!!!

Great/horrible Car — I love my car, but hate it at the same time. I've been modding it a little bit. But can def, use more work. Eventually I'm going to put a intake in it, and put the muffler back on. right now its just straight pipe. More of a project car for me.

Catches The Eye And Envy Of Many — I've had this car for almost 3 years and not a day passes me by that i dont get a "hey, nice car!" or "what is that, how much did it cost?" and my answer always shocks them. as this car is ver inexpensive, it a steal to anyone who owns one. to fix it costs nothing and it doesnt break down as often like foreign cars, but will still smoke them off the line. SS super sport. the name says it all

Pros

It's very cost effective, both with gas and maintenance. It's comfortable to drive.

Cons

If you're the only one driving you can fit a lot of stuff in it for something like moving, but it gets difficult when you add more people.

A Good, Reliable Car, But Nothing Fancy. — Everything works like it's supposed to, it runs well and accelerates pretty quickly. I like how it looks, it kind of brought me into the "adult" world of owning and taking car of a car as opposed to a breaking down Olds. It can drive cross-country with nothing wrong, but at times the road noise was loud.
