Cons: "plastic interior, seats not overly comfortable"

"Purchased new in 2009 I have driven daily since then. It's an economy car so the interior is what you would expect, cheap but effective and durable. If you take care of the vehicle it won't fail you. I have not had any failures from my Cobalt. An excellent vehicle if you are looking for something reliable and affordable. Way under priced and under valued. I have seen these cars in good working order with over 200,000 miles on them. Those who complain about reliability issues have not maintained their vehicles."
Pros: "Quick, sporty, and will get you there stylish"
Cons: "Small car for a family"

"I bought it from a local dealer with 45k on the clock, and the instant I saw it I was in love. The spoiler was a bit too high and I have since removed it for a wingless look. I have done numerous modifications to get a little more power and I have been satisfied. I changed the tune a little to use E85 fuel and gas mileage dropped from about 28 city to 24, and 34 highway to about 28. I love it and will keep it for a long time."
"I got the colbalt out of desperation..Cheap little car. That is a great way to describe this vehicle. Cheaply made Cheap on gas and just shotty workmanship. I have kept up on all recommended maint for this vehicle through the dealership. Love them but absolutely hate this car. My car insurance went up over $50/month because its made of nothing but plastic..If you get into an accident its going to cost the insurance company and you dearly. Do not get into one without your seatbelt. If you do get into an accident at least you wont go through the windshield as the rest of the car pops apart."
"2400000 miles and no major repair. Never had ignition issue. Spent less than a thousand dollars on repairs. Great tire wear except for pirelli tires. Never has needed an alignment. All options still work including ac. Beats any foreign car in its class on pick up. Still does not use oil."
"This was my second vehicle. I like this car, aside from the recall & other misc things that have gone wrong, it is a very affordable reliable vehicle.
My 4D LT Sedan was a rental car before it became mine, so I purchased it with 85,000 miles. I definitely over paid for it from the dealership and am still paying it off. This car does not carry its purchase value well at all. I am stunned that with the mileage and the condition it is in, that it is worth so little.
For a college/starter vehicle, it was fantastic. It had enough space for toting around friends and taking home groceries.
This is not the car for a family or someone who moves larger items often.
The gas mileage is fantastic but I have my eyes set on something with more space.
If you are looking for a cheap, good looking, affordable fixer car, this is the car for you!"
