    Sweet — pros- its fast, handles like its on rails, great fuel milage, good aftermarket, simple to get another 50hp out of cons- crappy gm fit and finnish, 5x110 wheel bolt pattern makes aftermarket wheel choices very limited, matinance costs arent exactly cheap, but its not that bad

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: cause its fun

    Cons: no reason to avoid it

    Shes My Daily And Gets Me Where I Want To Go Fast — Well its Turbocharged now so its not really an Ls...its more of a Ls/TC and its fairly quick...its putting down 257whp @ 11psi. but ill be changing out a few more things in the near future and turning the boost up to about 18-23psi.

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

    Pros: Its real easy to make lots of power in this engine

    Cons: none...its a sleeper

    Worst Than Anything Imaginable. Mafunctioned And Continues To Surprise In A Horrible Way. — The car handled like a dream for the first three months, but on the forth month it was a nightmare to deal with. The things that went wrong were just too much to handle. First the car turned off on it's own, randomly, then it locked and unlocked itself. The power steering went out soon after. To make things worst, they keys got stuck and wouldn't move. This was tied to the shifter, which locked (twice) in 1 year! Horrible vehicle and GM refuses to announce a recall for it. Do not buy their cars!

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Gas Milage

    Cons: Electric problems, steering, frame, axle, engine, space, durabilit, reliability.

    Cobalt — When I first got the car it was nothing but trouble. After bringing it back to the dealership 6 times within the first year I was ready to give it back. Once the 2nd and 3rd year passed there were no more problems. It gets great gas mileagle and that is the only reason I still have this car. I like telling my friends that it takes $20 to fill up my tank and I can drive an average 380 miles on a tank. Especially driving 32 miles one way to work. That makes this my point A to B car.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Great gas Mileage

    Cons: Problems when I first got the car (leaking, regulators, etc.)

    Cobalt Ss/sc — Acceleration is decent. stops and handles decent. interior is not bad. the seats are awesome, minus the fact that they dont fit inside the car perfectly... Its a chevy. The apperance, lots of stile and pazazz. the car is a good deal if you are looking for a affordable, hot, quick ride with great MPH, consider the cobalt SS/SS or SS/TC .

    Pros: Cheap price acceleration nice sound lots of power goodies

    Cons: rattles and you have to consider under all the pazazz its still A cobalt

    Good Little Car Overall. — It's ok, I should've waited until 2006. We got a basic model, but the engine kept overheating, even in winter! Finally after 4 tries, Valenti fixed it. Now I'm happy. Cost of maintenance is good, no other problems except for the overheating.

    Pros: small, good gas mileage

    Cons: don't buy a car the first year of a new model, wait until the 2nd year when the bugs will be fixed.

    Don't Get It — Acceleration is not bad in a standard Breaking is excellent Appearance is pretty good for the coupe Gas milage is amazing Needs lots of maintenance cause its a chev and its GM :P Definitely a fun car to drive Would not recommend this car, but would definitely recommend the SS supercharged or the 2008 SS turbocharged, its the cheapest fast car money can buy, besides a supra

    Pros: Cheap and quick

    Cons: its made by GM

    A Perfect First Car! — Love everything about my car! Nontraditional color(Sunburst), lots of trunk space, very good on gas. Passengers say it's small but I say right size for me. Perfect for weaving in traffic. Easy to handle, great for last second breaking. Drivers seat has many adjustment options. Baught used, owned for three years. Never been in for repairs, only for fluids and tire services. I love driving my car and love it more than any other car I've driven.

    Pros: small and fast

    Cons: none

    05 Chevy Cobalt — This is the last chevy I will own. The quality is not there anymore. While it get good gas milage, llooks decent, and it is an "American" car??? I will get a Honda or Hyundia which is much better in quality and the Honda is more "American" than the Chevy or any GM products.

    Pros: Good gas milage

    Cons: Lacking in quality
