    My Car — I love the fact that it's a manual but hate the fact that it's a frontwheel drive. But overall this is a very nice car to drive and it's has decent acceleration considering the fact that it's a 4 cylinder.

    Pros: it's a stick, decent acceleration

    Cons: front-wheel drive

    A Ho Hum Car. Nothing Is Great About It...nothing That Awful About It Either. — I wasn't expecting much out of the Cobalt considering that the previous car was a Cavalier which were almost all bad. This is probably the most common car I drive at work so I can give a rough sense of whether they made several good or bad ones. Performance-wise its not brilliant at anything, its not horrible either. The engine does produce nice hp and torque numbers but doesn't seem to translate in the feeling of power. Handling is ok, once again it feels average, the steering is a bit loose and the turning circle is ok. It has some potential which is probably why the SS version is reasonably popular, buy that instead of a regular one if you want a good drive. Build quality varies on each Cobalt. A good number of them manage to be built properly, but some will produce rattles even at 5000 kms on the odo. Quality issues, the starter can be a bit of a problem when it ages to 50,000-60,000 kms since a few of the 07s refuse to allow the key to start it up. Considering how many examples weren't that bad, it might actually be ok. The Cobalt LS particularly has nearly no options so I'm not sure how well certain power options work like ABS, power windows, locks, etc. They all have gas hood struts oddly enough along with an auxiliary port for your MP3. Fuel economy is not a big strong suit of the engine so it will guzzle more fuel than the equivalent Civic and Corolla. Its not as horrible as a Caliber fortunately. In very low speed hits, it might not take any damage due to the plastic bumpers. More serious damage however will write the car off since it depreciates badly. In terms of looks the 4-doors are really anonymous. The 2-door variant has a decent rear end with Corvette inspiration but still has a generic front end.

    Pros: It doesn't do anything horribly wrong

    Cons: Doesn't do anything great, depreciates badly especially in base form

    Cobalt — Amazing car, well built, looks great. Drives smooth, and quietly. Great power, and with the turbo there is lots to spare. It can be a little pricey to own depending how hard you are driving it. Very fun to drive, and the race style seats are very comfortable. Overall a great car.

    Pros: I own it

    Cons: You aren't driving it
