Colby — Colby is very sexy. I have had 3 major problems but all have been fixed. However, Bresee Chevy painted my bumper wrong. I dont think you can tell tho. I love to drive it but it was not worth 20k. Great gas mileage. Overall Colby is a good little car.

Pros: super sexy stick

Cons: needs more interior lights

2005 Cobalt Ls, Great Car — The car is freakin awesome, especially when you put the price tag next to it. i get like 31 MPG with everyday driving and if i want to it can go pretty fast, but that cuts into the MPG's pretty hard. doesn't accelerate that well after 2nd gear but it has a pretty high top speed. Disk brakes on the rear wheels instead of drums would be nice for both appearance and function. A little less plastic interior would be nice too, as it is a pain in the butt to keep immaculate but it's ok because it reduces weight and cost to the vehicle. The only real issue that I have had with the car was when i first got the car. The steering wheel mounted volume controls didn't work 100% of the time, but the dealer fixed it free of charge. It is a blast to drive, a great "everyman car" and i recommend it to everyone i talk to.

Pros: ECOtech engine (gas mileage)

Cons: too much plastic

The Best Car I Have Ever Owned — I bought the car in 2005 and I have had no problems out of it at all!! I have never changed the brakes or had any engine problems..nothing! It drives smooth and gets great gas mileage. If you are looking for a cute, cheap, good quality car that won't empty your wallet at the pump..the Cobalt is for you!!

Pros: Gas mileage, Sporty appearance, Not expensive

Cons: Not a lot of power, Can't take a hit very well

The Cobalt Rules!!! — I love this car. It goes the way I want it too, and I don't have to put my foot all the way down on the gas to make it go. It looks fast, but that doesn't mean you have to drive fast. I would buy another one. This car is my favorite. I love it even more than my first car.

Pros: Excellent handling, and great gas mileage.  

Cons: Occasionally has problems with the windows, and recommend that you look into new tires, the factory tires are junk.  I had to get them replaced twice already, once for bad quality of tires, and another time for road wear and an accident.

Woooo — I bought it in June of 2008 for $10,000 even. It came with a sunroof, bass system, spoiler, and new tires. The performance on this car is great with handling and acceleration, with a mild brake shimmy. Both the interior and exterior look nice, and it is a very fun car to drive.

Pros: 30 mpg or more

Cons: spoiler is sometimes difficult to see behind

Nice And Affordable. — performance- when you accelerate fast it has a little bit of a delayed reaction. kinda sucks. but I don't race so I guess it doesnt matter that much. build quality- on door handle inside, the silver paint is chipping off and the fabric is pulling away from the handle. appearance- it's a pretty car, no doubt. not my first choice but it works for now. cost- pay about $40 from 1/8 of a tank to fill it. i just pay for the oil changes every 3 months. good quality if you take car of it, it's never needed anything else done to it. fun- it feels much funner when it's clean and has some tire shine. =)

Pros: definately worth the extra $ to get the 7 speaker sound system, the sub sounds great. it's not overkill. good on gas, about 25 mpg. cheap if your on a budget.

Cons: the nickel paint color on the interior could at least stay put, or make those parts that are painted the silver color instead of black.

Gold Chevy Cobalt — Great Gas Mileage. Compact and easy to handle on the highway. It has great passing power. Handles well on all types of road conditions. Love the style and design. Perfect color inside and out. And is very fun to drive. I would recommend it to any one young and old.

Pros: great gas mileage

Cons: Built very close to ground.

2005 Cobalt — I love my car because it is exactly what I wanted. I have started to put on some aftermarket parts, including a spoiler that I have just purchased, and am going to put on myself. I still want to put bigger rims and tires on it, but unfortunatly that is a little ways down the road.

Pros: Very dependable Car

Cons: Waranty work at dealerships is crap

I Like It But Wish I'd Bought Something Else — When i first got it i loved it. Then things went wrong. I had to have alot of stuff replaced. Luckily i had a warranty. Two new steering columns (ratted, still does), shifter(wouldnt unlock the ignition), headlight(water leaked in), radio(painted chipped off buttons), ignition crap(key would come out of ignition), door switches (paint chipping and fabric loose, blower motor(humming noise) for air conditioner, all new window trim (warped), plus i had a leak under the passenger side dash twice, some dumb seal thing. Does have good power at times, can be picky.

Pros: decent gas mileage, cute, plus takes bumps from other cars real well on the bumpers. nice sized trunk.

Cons: all the work i had to have done see review. paid too much for what i got.
