    Fun, Economically Priced Sports Car. — Most fun car I've ever owned. Nothing fancy, but decently engineered, everything works and goes like crazy. Gets a few looks too, mostly because of the huge factory wing which is a bit gaudy, (but who cares) and one of the best colors GM has come up with in years.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Awesome car.  Reasonably priced, lots of power, (supercharged 2.0) fun looking with the big wing and fun to drive.

    Cons: Turning radius is huge for such a small car. Geared very low. Could really have used a 6 speed.  I find myself hunting for another gear when I'm already in 5th.

    In My Opinion, Stear Clear Of Cobalts — I bought my 2006 Chevy Cobalt 2.2L in November, 2011. It only had 90k miles on it and not two weeks after I made the vehicle purchase I began to have engine stalling problems. This seems to happen when slowing my speed or stopping (car absolutely HATES stop and go traffic). No engine trouble lights come on so I have no codes to check. Lights seem to dim out when the RPMs fluctuate (before stalling, my RPMs are very irratic, bouncing from as high as 800 to as low as 200). Mechanics at the dealership have even requested that I stop bringing my car in to their shop because they can't duplicate the problem (they claim their mechanics have put 200 miles on the vehicle without the problem occurring).

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Car handles tight turns pretty well and is decently gas efficient.

    Cons: Stalls out a lot, mechanics stumped by this issue

    Funnest And Fastest Car And Amazingly Priced — its super light and super quick. ive seen them out run new 5.0 gt mustangs so the power is all there. Statistically it could keep up with a viper off the line sharing a 4.2 0-60 time. It looks amazing. Has a slight tuner look for it but is still an american car. interior is amazing with the black and yellow inside and all black exterior. gets around 28 mpg if you can keep your foot out of it that is. and its amazingly fun to drive. You can haul a$$ or just cruze and let the look and sound of the supercharger speak for its self.

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

    Pros: Speed is there or you can stay out of it for gas milage. 5 speed transmission shifts smooth as can be and the supercharger sounds awesome. i get remarks on the looks and constantly have to answer questions about supercharger.

    Cons: not a thing

    Its Fun To Drive — i like the car overall. the only down fall i see is that there is barely any room in the back seats, but honestly dont car i didnt buy to be a family car. the front wheel drive helps the handleing alot, and when cruising down the highway at 70 mph, sometimes 90 mph, the car feels surprisingly smooth.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: easy to work on.

    Cons: could use better acceleration

    Great For College Bound Kid — its a great car for the college kid or the adult looking to save on gas. the back seat doesnt have much room so if the person in the front is tall then you might have a problem. has a pretty good sized trunk space. car has been dependable since i bought it. drives like a dream.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: not a bad car

    Cons: lack of leg room in the back
