    Good Little Car — Used to really like it. Now just a car, next car gonna be an IMPORT. Still Canadian made though, so no worries. Looks good, handles and performs better now :) I got the better little wing and not the SS wing.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Descent looks, performs good, but better with upgrades :)

    Cons: Warranty, how cheap they made it, and I own part of company lol

    Cheap Speed. Made By Chevy. Two Good Things In One — Nice Car. Fast Acceleration. Supercharged!!! Love the whine. Very good handling. Decent interior. Very sharp car, neat styling. Decent on repairs. Oil changes cost an arm and a leg though. Requires Mobil-1 Full Synthetic oil. Runs best on 89 octane feul or higher. Great gas mileage. 32-38 MPG.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Power, handling, gas mileage, supercharged.

    Cons: costly oil changes. governer at 140 MPH. lol

    If You're Looking For A Car, Its Cheap And Good On Gas. That Is If You Drive Nice Of Course — The trunk is huge if you need room in a 2 door coupe, this would be your ticket, it also has a decent amout of back seat space and head room. For a base coupe the 2.0l 4 cylinder engine has got a decent amout of balls for a 4 banger. It governs at 170 thought =(, so thats kinda bummer. Parts to improve the car thought are not that terribly expensive.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Its fun if its standard

    Cons: Not sure at the moment

    2005 Chevy Cobalt — Overall a finely built machine, apparently though with the 2005 model, the key has a tendency to get stuck in the ignition. Other than that it drives well, handles nice, and it is very roomy in the back for passengers. I'd recommend the Cobalt but maybe just the 2006 and up models.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Drives nice, handles night, looks sporty with a spoiler

    Cons: key gets stuck in ignition.

    Good Car Just Like The Cavaliers, I Have Only Had To Do Maintenance Work On It. — Its Not an SS. Dont like the cloth/poly interior. Very reliable, surpising power and great gas mileage. Lighter weight than the cavaliers it replaced. Overall a good car, as long as youre not looking for a muscle car or a luxury car. It serves its purpose.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Reliable and easy to maintain

    Cons: None

    Fun To Drive But Needs More Under The Hood And Better Creature Comforts — I love my cobalt, but there are things that would make the car much more fun. Like a 5 speed transmission and/or more power. I have plans to make it a one of a kind in the future but plans arent always reality

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Fun little gas saver

    Cons: Rental car appearence

    Ss Ubercharged — Handles and performs like a dream, under the hood is a secret =) trust me its far far far from stock, and when I say it performs like a dream I mean it. This is coming from a guy how had a 2003 Cobra prior to this car.

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

    Pros: Quick for a lil thing!

    Cons: No complaints on my end
