Love It — stock this car suprised me. it has much more than i thought it would. with the K&N intake i installed it added some power and and made the car sound fantastic. it added about 8 HP and 10 ft lbs of torque. Build quality is very good nothing has broken or malfunctioned. I keep it well maintained so there is really no reason for anything to break down. The exterior i feel is good looking for the price of the car. it has a sleek design and the spoiler gives it a sporty feel. The window tints and halo headlights add some good characteristics to it that make it stand out from the rest. Its fun to drive whether your going the speed limit or really opening it up on a straight. the car leans alot around corners for a coupe but for stock suspension its not terrible.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Good power for a 4 Cyl chevy and good control at higher speeds

Cons: No room in the backseats

On A Highway To No Where. — would not recommend this car to anyone except the scrap yards, not a meat and potatoes car just a flash in the pan, not a car for families with or without kids. back seat no room for legs but not bad if you have no legs to sit in the back that is. A REAL WASTE OF MONEY TO BUY IT.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: the only thing they got right on this car was that it was good on gas.

Cons: Airbags deploy to way to late-After the fact.

Good Economy Car. — The Cobalt is pretty good at doing what it's supposed to do. It's definitely not the quickest thing on the road, but it's peppy enough to get you on the freeway, and handles well enough to keep you out of trouble. It's been very reliable, and gets decent fuel mileage. It's no sports car, but I never expected it to be.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Good everyday transportation. Better to drive than the numb, characterless imports.

Cons: Could use a little more power. I expected a few more MPG for the size of the car.

Silver Cobalt — I am a sedan person but could not afford a brand new large car, so the Cobalt was in my price range. I do dislike how small the back seat is but I don't have a lot of passengers and went into the purchase fully knowing that I was getting a COMPACT car. One thing I do not understand is how Chevrolet could design the vehicle with lots of trunk space but a small opening. I cannot get a large plastic tub into my car because of the trunk opening, I have the space inside the trunk but no way to get in there through the trunk. I have to go through the split backseat.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: The turning raduis is awesome. Love the remote car start option. the seats are comfortable I have the adjustable lumbar support love it! Love the XM radio, the usb connector and the two power outlets. I love how I can check the tire pressures while driving and it is acurrate.

Cons: the trunk is big but the opening is small can't get large items into trunk even though I have the room. I also Have had to replace my sterio due to broken button at time of purchase, the passenger side a-pillar was warpped at time of purchase and replaced. Also I have had two windows stop working randomly and repaired.  Nothing mechanically wrong with car and chevrolet has replaced and or fixed all issues at no cost which is great. But why is a brand new car breaking?

Wouldnt Trade It For Anything Less. — the car has exealnt performance. It feels good to dive. I have the 2.0 module and it still feels powerfull for a 4 cylinder. The first week I had it I took it on a curvey mountin road very fast, even though the tires broke lose a few times it handled great. This is a awsome car to own.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Fun to drive and looks good

Cons: I've got nothing

Great Performance Bargain That Can Be A Daily Driver. — The engine is one of the best I've ever had. Throws you back in the seat HARD. Handles wonderfully, glad I got the LSD or it would roast the outside tire on any turn. It's been reliable, but I've never had to get so much warranty work done ever--recall for power steering, interior trim installed crooked on dash, l windshield washer jet installed crooked from factory, rear brakes squeel incessantly even after having the rotors turned at 12k miles. I average 25 mpg, but averaged 32 on a long road trip. Love the looks w/ the spoiler and the SS factory body kit. Too bad people have a stigma about it being a Cobalt. One of the best performance bargains of all time.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Handles great, nice motor, full of features.

Cons: Rear seat tight- duh, its a coupe.  Build quality is sad- paint issues, panel gaps, etc.

Sporty And Fun! — performance this car performs very well, the steering can feel a little wierd if your not used to electronic steering. acceleration is nice but you dont feel the punch like in some cars... build quality some people say that the rear brakes give them probs and the rear rotors rust... appearance looks awsome! as far as appearance goes it keeps up w the higher end cars! cost of ownership with the great gas mileage you should get your moneys worth out of this car! well as long as your not a hard driver it should get good gas mileage... fun factor i bought a 5 speed and its so fun to drive! all depends on what u like!

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: love it! fun to drive, and sporty looking too!

Cons: not as much hp as in other cars
