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

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.

Concerned On Recall Part Being The Answer. — i would have liked leatheret seat covering not gray cloth and fog lights. great acceleration breaking very good not as firm as i would like yes safe yes fun to drive. car has 547 miles on it .recall part concerned.

Pros: more then satisfied but concerned with the out come results of the new power steering electrical motor about to be put on my 2008 limited edition cobalt with only 547 miles on the car miles not a type o thats right 547 miles not drove much.

Cons: i hope the chevy dealer  and recall part are a good out come
