Great Commuter Car
Pros: OnStar phone hands free calling.
Cons: Drivers seat, wish it would go back more, I am very tall.I have had this 2010 Cobalt for 8 months and have had no problems. Gas mileage for combined city and highway is about 31 mpg. Handles great and so far grips well in slippery conditions. Better than most econboxes for the price.
Pros: the foglights
Cons: the hubcapsI have a cobalt LT sedan and love it!
My Cobalt best in Initial Quality !!!!!!!!
Pros: low fuel consumption and reliability
Cons: underpoweredBest car in Initial Quality (after one year and 15,000 miles) I ever had in my stable, and as such even better than my 1992 Civic si (and my recently bought Fit Sport, 2010). My stable comprises classics (2xLancia, 1x Alfa, 1x Ferrari, 1x Fiat) plus the Hondas (above) and a Maxima SE (2004). 2 thumbs up for GM !!! Next daily driver; a GM product for sure
Great gas mileage and very reliable
Pros: super gas mileage
Cons: no cruise control, but I bought a base model to lower my expensesHad my Cobalt for 3 years now and put over 45,000 miles on it. Runs just as good as when I first bouth it, great commuter too - I get 32 plus mpg overall and top out 38 on highway travel. With the front wheel drive I can punch through almost any snow bank. Never had any problems.
Not what we thought.
Cons: Drivers seat lack of adjustment.Not a very comfortable car for any distance. Low end type,. Have only been able to acheive 30 mpg
Pros: Body Style
Cons: Driving in the snow
Advice: If it snows where you live buy something else!I have had my cobalt for quiet a while and one thing I HATE is the performance in the snow. Only wheel spins so if you buy one make sure you don't live near any hills. The car I owned before this was the Chevrolet Cavalier and had no problems at all with it in the snow.
