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.
Highest quality ever!
Pros: Sunroof with no noise and no rain entry when open!
Cons: Seat belt clip receiver could be a few inches longer.Overall the best car I have owned. Great looks and style, high MPG, great handeling, low wind noise, great comfort, and all controls function perfectly.
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.
Pros: Very quiet cabin and big trunk.
Advice: BUY IT!!!I love this car. Feels like a toyota corolla or honda civic. Of couse with out the price tag. Love the way it feels.
Pros: All of the info on dash
Cons: That I couldn't afford to buy 2
Advice: You want a bang for your buckI rented a Cobolt while my other vehicle was in the shop, I fell in love with its great looks, comfort and excellent gas mileage. When I took the rental back, I knew that I had to have one, so I visited my local Chevy dealer, and 2 hours later, my new Cobolt was smiling at me in the driveway.
Cons: needs more horse power
Advice: get what you want exactuallyI have a 5 speed stick shift and it shifts nice!! It is alittle noisey when your first accelerate but then once that you get up to speed it is quiet!! The features that it has are awesome!!! The radio will set to your speed, meaning that it gets louder as you accelerate to your desired speed!!! Over all I love the car and it is what I expected it to be!! Its a great car for anybody who wants it for what it comes with stock or anybody that wants to deck it out to there desired speedster!!! Have fun!!!
