Cons: very smallVery reliable car.
Pros: The outer appearance
Cons: Its a chevy...what's not to like?
Advice: Go for the LS or LT modelsI actually test drove the base model of the Cobalt, bought it and loved it. About 6 months later, I got into an accident with it and ended up totaling it in a head on collision. It held up very well for a small car. So, after the accident, I ended up buying a Dodge Stratus (big disappointment) and I hated it...all I could think about was my Cobalt. So, looking online one day at a local Chevy dealer's stock, I found my new Cobalt! It is bright red (victory red), Level 2 LS Sport Coupe. It was gorgeous! I fell in love with it the moment I saw it! My fiancee and I went to test drive it and what not, and I hopped in it and didn't want to get out. My family was so impressed with my Cobalt, that my sister and her husband leased one and they love it!
Pros: dash board computer
Cons: loud fan for the heater
Advice: the radio locks up alot so make sure you get it replaced if it doesI noticed that it had quite a bit of get up and go in it.

Pros: the white face gages
Advice: buy it you will love itI love my car. I could not wait till the coupe finally came out. I have the 05 coupe Ls with the sports package. I liked the prices and all the extra you can get. You need to go out and buy it!
Pros: Look of car
Cons: Windshield wiper freeze almost every time it snows or they stop working if the snow gets too heavy. Already had to have the radio replaced because it ate my CDs. Has sporatic engine problems causing the car to run extremely hard (rpm stuck at 4000)
Advice: Make sure you have a good relationship with the dealership incase you experience similar problems.I love the look of the car. The car doesn't seem to have been designed very well for winter. S.E. Michigan's winters aren't too bad yet this car's wipers can't handle very much snow. They don't have the power to continue to work if the slightest buildup of snow occurs while driving. I've also had to replace the radio already. More seriously, the car is having unidentified engine problems. The dealership can't seem to find anything wrong yet from time to time the RPMs are extremely high when driving normal or not even pushing the gas at all. Once the car is turned off and started back up, the problem disappears. Very frustrating.
Cons: Rear view from the Spoiler
Advice: Buy One With The Sport Package Or The SSI was Sold! I took it home for the Overnight test drive that GM Offer and loved it, I knew i would not be able to take it back to the dealer for good. I Have a 06 LT Coupe. With the Sport Packeage.
