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.

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..

35

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.

its fast, sporty, and a fairly priced car!

Cons

doesnt run at max performance all the time, some dont like the interior(i personally do)

Hands Down The Fastest Car On The Market For The Money! Comfortable To Drive And Is An Eye Catcher! — performance- best 0-60 time in its class. can do 158 mph stock. set records as far as handling performance in its class. brakes are incredible but the brembos take some getting use to in the rain. build qaulity- the only repair needed was the passenger headlight was getting moisture in it after the first week and got replaced under warranty and havent had any issues since. appearance- its stock look is eye catching! it took 3rd place in GM Nationals car show in pretty much stock form so that has to say something. cost of ownership- gets about 26mph on average. thats city/highway combined. as far as maintenance, it requires full synthetic oil and premium gas so its a little more costly than the average car. fun factor- its a very fun car to drive! its has its minor driveabilty issues but they are things to expect from a turbocharged, high performance car.
