    Totally Under Estimated This Car — I am used to big muscle cars and rwd cars, so down sizing to this was a tad bit awkward for me. but wow was I blown away when I drove this car. it had the GM Stage one kit on it when I bought and wow does that really wake up that little 2.0 turbo engine. a couple other simple mods and you are quickly over 300 hp in them. and for only being like 2900 lbs makes it alot more fun.

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

    Pros: 5 spd manual, Great MPG, Lot of easy power

    Cons: trunk has an awkward opening so hard to fit thing in it

    Sporty And Economical — This Cobalt is fast, responsive, easy to handle, and gets good gas mileage. Low maintenance keeps this vehicle very economical. There's not much room for passengers and the trunk is small. This car is perfect for students or someone on the go!

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Good car for students, easy to handle, comfortable, bright yellow, gets good gas mileage, sporty with low maintenance.

    Cons: Not much room for passengers in the rear bucket seat, the color is bright yellow.

    Sports Car — Very powerful, good handling and moderately priced sports car. Great gas mileage - up to 30 miles per gallon on the freeway. Easy to work on and parts are economical compared to comparable cars with with similar agility. The Brembo brakes up front allow for extremely good stopping power and the 5 speed manual allows for sporty driving from virtually any gear / speed.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Power, handling and stopping power

    Cons: Stiff suspension

    Great/horrible Car — I love my car, but hate it at the same time. I've been modding it a little bit. But can def, use more work. Eventually I'm going to put a intake in it, and put the muffler back on. right now its just straight pipe. More of a project car for me.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: MPG is ok, could be better, handles nice, and has a great sound system.

    Cons: Always having problems with it, already had to replace the clutch, WAAAYYY over priced.

    Catches The Eye And Envy Of Many — I've had this car for almost 3 years and not a day passes me by that i dont get a "hey, nice car!" or "what is that, how much did it cost?" and my answer always shocks them. as this car is ver inexpensive, it a steal to anyone who owns one. to fix it costs nothing and it doesnt break down as often like foreign cars, but will still smoke them off the line. SS super sport. the name says it all

    Pros: The power and handling is excellent, matched with the fuel economy its best in its class.

    Cons: its a coupe so its small. and you cant exactly have a baby with a car seat in the back, its too tight.

    A Good, Reliable Car, But Nothing Fancy. — Everything works like it's supposed to, it runs well and accelerates pretty quickly. I like how it looks, it kind of brought me into the "adult" world of owning and taking car of a car as opposed to a breaking down Olds. It can drive cross-country with nothing wrong, but at times the road noise was loud.

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: It's very cost effective, both with gas and maintenance. It's comfortable to drive.

    Cons: If you're the only one driving you can fit a lot of stuff in it for something like moving, but it gets difficult when you add more people.

    Its A Good Reliable , Economical Car — I needed a car after the move to MSP. When we traded in the Nissan for Gordon's car. Gets great mileage so far. a bit pedestrian but like the brightwork of the LT version. Makes it look more expensive. overall nice car

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Pros: Tyhe Mileage is the best part of car. Averaging over 30 MPG so far. so not bad. the brightwork is nice too

    Cons: Cons. Low roll resistance tires are horendous on handling.

    09 Coballt Ss Turbo — I loved this car to death until I sold it for a rear wheel drive sports car. The brakes were amazing with the large brembo front brakes, the steering was amazing with the sport tuned suspension, the performance was ridiculous with the 2.0L LNF turbocharged motor, the interior was sporty and sleek. I owned this car for 3 years and put 22,000 miles on it. I put a cold air intake, intercooler piping, and full catless exhaust and got it tuned making 310whp and 383wtq reliably. for the price you cant get much better of a performance car than this. I have never owned a more fun car. and the stock sound system was great with the 8 inch stock pioneer subwoofer. if you get a chance get it.

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

    Pros: AMAZING car for the price, true tuner sports car.

    Cons: it was front wheel drive and i didnt opt to get the Limited slip differential
