    ??? — pretty fun but not very reliable. Its got a goot bit of performance and handling but the clutch is only rated for 300hp and its already at 260...bad on chevy's part. It is a good car though. Not regretting anything.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: turbo

    Cons: reliability

    My Baby — I like my car, its dependable, the mileage isn't bad and its a very sport red :) My only real complaint would be that its a two door instead of four door. What I really like is that it feels like a sports car but isn't.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Its red

    Cons: Its a two door.

    Reccommend For Young People And Commuters. — Performance - For a 4 cylinder vehicle this car is fun to drive. The acceleration is not the worst and the handling is great. This car is a good car for a young person learning to drive. Not to mention this car is very easy to parallel park.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: I like this car for its drivability to get too and from work with a low cost of ownership.

    Cons: I dislike front wheel drive and the lack of power.

    Cobalt's The Best — I love my Cobalt. I wouldn't trade it in for anything else. It handles really great. One thing's for sure it gets up and goes. The cobalt is fun to drive. I recommend this car to anyone looking to get an affordable deal.

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: The get up and go.

    Cons: My cars brakes vibrate, but don't let that hender your buying the cobalt.

    Good Car To Have But Make Sure You Get At Least An Lt2 — This car is fun to drive and comes in awesome colors, mine is blue with a purple hue and a black interior! Although the car is cute, it is slow to accelerate and the interior is cheap plastics! I get 35mpg on the highway and 24mpg in the city but that is doing the speed limit or under. The car would be even better if it was a convertible! It is also very reliable!

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Fun to drive, cute, good mileage

    Cons: Cheap interior plastics!
