Good Dd — I've had this car for a little over a year now. I'm still pleased by most of it. It's pretty quick for such a small engine (2.0 L), and it handles very smoothly, even when cruising at top speed (about 120mph). The manual transmission is a blast too. The only issue I can really find is the dashboard and center console is made of hard plastic that you may find in a child's outdoor playhouse.

Pros

Wonderful car, it's fast, easy to drive. Braking is also a plus with the brembo brakes it stops right on a dime with smooth transition unlike some vehicles that jerk you to a stop. For a single person, young person or anyone who is a car enthusiast this car will not disappoint and the general cost for maintenance or replacement parts are low for those that have a budget.

Cons

I'm gonna start with the interior, it's pretty much plastic, the dash is plastic pretty much the interior is about 80% plastic and does make noise after so many miles. When the vehicle starts up on a cold start it sounds like a Boeing 777 it's pretty loud but only does it for 30 seconds then back to hearing those injectors and engine. Handling you have torque steer to deal with since this is a FF vehicle. It's like a wild animal when you floor it. Plus 1st gear doesn't have any power but 2-5th you'll feel the car explode. Also you have to consider even if it is a turbocharge vehicle you have to come to the fact that it's a cobalt.

A Sleeper With A Bang For Your Buck — Overall this car is great to have, anyone looking for something fast or something that is comfortable and easy to drive. If your going to buy one, get the full package with the sun roof and the RPD digital gauge.

Dependable And Efficient On Gas — We have had no problems with performance at all. It is a very dependable and efficient car. It is ideal for a college student or just an every day car to commute to work daily. Definitely recommend it to anyone.

The Best Performance Value Out There. — It can blow the doors off of cars costing much more. It can handle like a go cart and get over 30mpg. Turbo spools so quick it is insane. Bluetooth, iPod interface, auxilliary input, sunroof, turn by turn navigation, amazing racing seats, and a 10 inch subwoofer for under 23k. Standard transmission only, no slushboxes. For the budget enthusiast who doesn't care if his dash is plastic.

Pros

I talked to my mechanic (absoutly a Toyota) guy.  He said the Chevy Cobalt was a good car.  I really like the apperance of the car, a little different looking than most cars which all tend to look alike.  I like upgrades such as nice wheels, power windows, remote start, comfortable interior considering I commute 60 miles a day on CA freeways.  This car uses sound damping and is really quiet especially for a small car. This car averages around 27.5 MPG.

Cons

I installed the small blind spot mirrors on the mirrors to see the blind spot which was a car length long.  The back window extends more toward the back which makes backing out a little tough, especially parked next to a SUV.  The cup holders are in frront of the back window defogger controls so I have to move my coffee cup to turn on.

Comfortable Good Looking Car — I like the build quality of the Cobolt. It equals the Saturn L200 I drove for 178,000 miles. The Cobolt has also inherited the same economical operation as I had on the Saturn. The car now has 60,000 miles with no issues. For instance, it still has the factory brakes. My mechanic keeps telling me they are fine. The car stops great. The only thing I have had to do is regular maintenance. I don't baby the car, and it has a lot of pep. I do wish I had an HOV sticker because I sit in stop n go traffic often. At least the car is comfortable, quite, and has a great sound system with XM available and aux input for your smart phone,

Fun Little Sauna — Car's great, It got me 400 miles with plenty of gas left, and it only has an 11 Gallon tank. And It was comfortable, besides the temperature, the whole time. Back seats are surprisingly roomy for a 2 door. Overall, I would not trade this car back for my CTS.

Pros

driving on a level road at 90km/hr i get 4l/100km fuel economy

Cons

doors on right side dont line uip ..from the factory...probably causing my issue with freezing on rear windows when it gets cold.have to keep an eye on the area under plastic shield ..small critters can make it in there and make a mess around the ignition coils
rear mud flaps are not a standard option on this car...I wish i had known...There are issues with the Evap Module behind the tank which can be avoided with them..

Nice Car — Its cheap...Its got a great heater..Sound system is good for factory...CVT transmission delivers lots of pep for a little car..this is my first new car..the dealership has been very good to me..I love the peace of mind when I am on the highway..

Cobalt A Peppy Basemodel — the car is fast for a base model car but has bad handling and certain parts have been half assed ex the weather stripping is hanging out of the car from the day we bought the car. Doors open to wide

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

Na — Nice car, could have a sleeker design for the HP avaialable to it. Otherwise it is a great daily driver for someone seeking a little fun during the daily grind. The turbo allows for easy acceleration and merging into those tight commuting freeway drives. The handling is outstanding, corners like a dream. May seem a bit of a stiff ride as far as handling bumps goes. Could be used as a long distance commuter with the excellent gas mileage, but once again the stiff suspension may make the longer trips a bit uncomfortable.
