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

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.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: :D great gas mileage

Cons: everythings manual...but i cant complain

Cobalt Review — Performance- Decent acceleration from a stop, but swift freeway passing demands a downshift. Strong, easily modulated brakes. Good grip from all season Pirellis, but steering isn't very communicative. Build quality- Mechanically sound to date. No electronic gremilins. Build quality is mediocre. Plastics decently grained and don't look overtly cheap, but their fit and finish is poor. A few rattles from dashboard and sunroof housing. Appearance- Plain Jane rental special is transformed into a decent looking machine thanks to the Sport model-specific front fascia, ground effects kit, rear air diffuser, and meaty wheels. Interior is pleasant, if somewhat bland Cost of Ownership- excellent gas mileage, see 30mpg on average. Maintenance iis relatively in expensive, although the engine does use synthetic oil, which is more expensive. Fun Factor- a blast to drive compared to the Jeep. Despite somewhat numb steering, decent acceleration and lots of grip help make this car tossable in turns with enough pick-up to keep driving spirited. Manual transmission is fun to row, if not WV/Audi smooth.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Gas Mileage, Handling, Acceleration, Low Cost of Ownership

Cons: Numb steering, freeway passing, fit and finish, trunk opening size
