I'd Say Im Happy With The Purchase Of The Car Because I Don't Have Buyers Remorse After 10 Months. — It's quick...but has the build quality of a base cobalt. I wish they made the SS model alittle better. GM has really stepped thier game up with direct injection and adding a turbocharger. With just a tune on the ss/tc they are putting out 290whp and 330wtq!

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: 260hp...enough said

Cons: It's still a cheaply made car

Chevy Cobalt — The performance wasn't nearly were I would have liked it to be, but what is to be expected from a base model vehicle. The build quality was a little lacking, but for the most part should hold up fine. I believe the higher end models would be very fun to drive since they would make up for the lack of power though I question the seats since the base model seats were so uncomfortable.

Pros: Drove decently and MUCH better than a Kia Rondo

Cons: Seats were quite uncomfortable

My Cobalt — Well, I am used to Cadillac's, but I do love my new car, great gas, sporty, and enough room for me, jenni, and the kids. I plan to pass it down to Silas when he gets his liscence, then to Maddi.

Pros: Small and Sporty with lots of leg room

Cons: Wish I had rims.

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
