Most bang for the buck
Cons: QualityI love the car, but would like to see better overall quality (needed to many miscellaneous warranty fixes so far). I would also like to see a dual clutch transmission as an option instead of a plain old fashion automatic.
A smile every time you driveit!
Pros: The looks and the power
Cons: nothing!I've had many sports cars over the years, but this is the best! Smooth and powerful, yet comfortable and affordable. Zero to sixty in 4 seconds AND 30 miles per gallon on the highway!
An Okay Automobile
Pros: Gas Mileage
Cons: SuspensionThe car ran well, but of course with a smaller 2.2 liter engine, doesn't have much 'get up and go'. The other thing is that both of the front end control arms had to be replaced. Likely due to driving on the dirt roads. The car has a pretty tight suspension and because of the small frame, likely cannot handle these types of roads.
Pros: 6spd trans.
Cons: nothingMy baby hasit all for any sports car enthusiast
My 2006 Cobalt
Cons: the rideThis car is now 5 years old and I still owe $7,000 on it! I do not think it will last the 18 more months I have left to pay on it. The a/c is going out and the transmission is going out. I have had it in the shop for recalls three times. I never liked the ride in it because it rides rough like there are no shocks on it. It takes bumps hard. I would not buy another one nor recommend it. Too may times in shop during warranty period.
Pros: gas saver.
Cons: very smallVery reliable car.
