    Sleek And Dark — Love the body of the Cobalt, nice and dark paint with smoked windows. Hub caps could have been make better. They tend to pop and creek when it's moving slowly in the residential areas. But all in all, it's a great car.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Great car with plenty of HP

    Cons: Fuel economy could be better than 22mpg in the city

    Loved This Car — Not big enough for my "family" of two large dogs. That is really it. I guess since they want at least 19 more words, the pick up could use a bit of improvement. I like speed and to get to a high rate quick...this is great, just takes awhile to get there. Fun to Drive. Feel totally safe and secure. Tight control...I love standards so that, to me, is a plus as well.

    Pros: Starts in any sub zero weather...ALWAYS...handles great at high speeds, I love this car.  One of the best I've ever owned.  Low maintenance, sexy.   I wouldn't be selling it if it weren't for my 130lb pup!  Great on gas!

    Cons: No sunroof, back seat not big enough for a small elephant.  (Madison, my dog).  Doesn't have great pick up speed, but is great once it gets going.  The earlier models have a well deserved bad rap, but this was not one of the recalled models...Chevy should work on getting their formerly good reputation back.  This model helps.

    Irreplacable — The look of the car is great and it very comfortable. My car is very quiet since i bought it brand new. This car is great because it rarely ever need to go to the garage and it was only for check ups and ordinary things. Another thing to love about this car is that the gas mileage is outstanding. For how small the engine is in the car the acceleration picks up fast. The braking and handling are very good. This car is very enjoyable to have especially for crusing around.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Overall my car is great to me. I've had since i was 16 and its got me through everything

    Cons: I wish the car had more power to it and that I could modify it better

    Great Car For Small Family. — This car can get up and go! it is fun to drive, comfortable, stylish and affordable! I've had it for three years and it's never given me any problems!! Car is easy to drive and I always felt in control. It will stop on a dime which has saved me a few times from hwy traffic.

    Pros: Large trunk, awesome highway miles, great for long trips!!

    Cons: Small back seat if you have multiple children.

    To Be Or Not To Be — could be better, has great grip, tires and rims are lighter than stock, still needs to loose some weight. with my upgrades i can keep up with a ss, all it needs is a turbo and a better clutch. not sure if i want to keep it

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

    Pros: i like the look, interior space, and the stance

    Cons: power could be improved, interior needs a re-design

    Compact — Really great gas mileage, little room for cargo, handling is good, small car that sits really low and not meant for a husband that is 6'4. Maintenance on car is really low. tires are pretty well needed every 2 years

    Pros: Gas mileage, handling

    Cons: Small

    Great Commuter Car At A Bargain Price — My girlfriend and I own three cars: a Jeep, a truck, and this Cobalt. The oddest thing is that I feel most comfortable driving my Cobalt. Whether it's in snow, ice, rain, or sunshine I'll usually pick the Cobalt out of them all. The handling and acceleration are superb, despite it being a low-end model. There is plenty of bang for your buck. I've rarely felt unsure while driving this vehicle. The gas mileage is excellent, too. You're not going to get hybrid MPG, but it's in the low 30s. Sound quality on the inside is great. And to top it off, it has a sleek and smooth look to it. It's definitely a good-looking car.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: There are quite a few benefits of driving a Chevy Cobalt.  I truly love the handling and drive of this car.  It's not branded as being super fast or super comfortable on long rides, but I beg to differ.  Great highway mileage (~33mpg), awesome sound system, reliable and affordable.  Great car.

    Cons: Cargo space is somewhat limited.  Not much leg room in the back.  That's about it!

    Great Starter Car — In the two years I have owned it it’s never let me down. Pretty much I have only had to do scheduled maintenance on it. it saved me and my wife when our ford and jeep failed us. (my wife says the cobalt's here to save the day every time my jeep needed fixed)

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: grate gas milage and a great family car. my first choice for long car trips

    Cons: its a small car especially for a taller person
