    I Love My 2008 Pearl White Chevrolet Cobalt Sport Coupe! — acceleration is very fast when pedel is pressed, braking is average, handeling is very smooth and easy. it hasnt needed any repairs so far.. nothing squeaks or rattles and interior is leather with seat warmers, exterior is pearl white which hides a lot of dirt believe it or not. i get about 34 miles to the gallon which is amazing (depending on how im driving of course) and maintenence is a little expensive but the fun factor is its a cute but sporty and soo fun to drive around in and blast music with the power windows down :) SUNROOFF!!!!

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: its very smooth

    Cons: you can speed easily due to acceleration speed

    Cant Wait For My Next One — It is not the car for me. I am way to tall. It might be the car for some people. The radio does get pretty roudy that is about it. Nothing else to say about the chevy cobalt four door.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: NONE

    Cons: Not for me

    Its Got Its Nitche — Its a good commuter car. Perfect for everyday driving. Its a bit small and weak but it gets awesome gas millage. The looks are not bad for being what it is. Definitely good for general driving and it also handles pretty good in the winter.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Its comfortable

    Cons: Its a bit under powered

    Not Bad For 16g — Performance, very agile and responsive in the corners. 4 piston Brembos provide great stopping. The turbo spools and pulls the car to 60 in 5 seconds.. (not bad for front wheel drive).. short throw shifting is great.. i am never let down when i wanna go when i need to go.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: FAST

    Cons: haven't found any yet, except front wheel drive and easily spins them expensive 225/40R18's

    Good Price For The Power You Get. — This car has excellent acceleration, great handling and for the price per horse power it is a great deal. The front brakes are really good also, the seats offer good support, the car has good gas mileage and the maintenance is fair price.

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

    Pros: Great handling

    Cons: rear brakes

    A Good Car For Gas Mileage — It's a really nice car, comfrotable to drive long distances. Love the satilite radio. Nice take off and really good on gas if you don't have a lead foot. My plan is to keep it till it falls apart so it'll be around for awhile.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Gas Mileage

    Cons: Not enough horsepower

    2008 Chevrolet Cobalt LT2 Review

    Great Reliable Performer! — I bought a used 2008 Cobalt LT2 with only 13,900 miles on it back in March of 2009 and I absolutely love it! Great acceleration, stops on a dime, and with the full-time all-speed traction control coming from the front wheels (standard on LT2 models), it makes evasive maneuvering a breeze. Plus the rear spoiler helps during windy conditions. Appearance- wise, this car is not a show car, as the cheap plastic interior and its plain exterior looks are self-explanatory. But that has never bothered me. Plus, with the huge hidden trunk as well as fold down rear seats add versatility to such a small car. Though the opening to the trunk could be a little larger in my opinion. Gas mileage is good, though it is no Honda Civic. The front ventilated rotors only needed to be adjusted once though as well as the rear drums needing to be cleaned. But other than that, just the usual oil change/tune-up. The cloth seats are comfortable for commuting, as they are not too plush, yet not too firm. I would highly recommend getting the LT2 model or higher as anything below that lacks a load of comfort and convenience features. Fun Factor - This car IS FUN TO DRIVE! Great for a long commute as well as in the city. The acceleration is also good with its 2.2 Liter engine and, it also hugs turns quite well on winding roads. All in all, I would highly recommend this car to anyone who's looking for a reliable everyday car with many different configurations to boot at a very affordable price.

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

    Pros: Reliability, good performance and acceleration, and a huge versatile trunk.

    Cons: Trunk opening could be a little larger.  Rear brake rotors (instead of drums) should at least be an option on the LT2 model.
