"Always in need of repairs, at almost 10 years old it's time for a trade in. Does not handle well in snowy upstate NY winters, even with exceptional snow tires and driving extremely cautiously. I do not recommend anyone buy a Cobalt. Key snapped in half and got stuck in the ignition...l had recall notice... The list goes on and on haha."

Pros: "Good price, fun to drive, cheap to fix"

Cons: "interior is meh, average mpg"

Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 8

"Bought this car 2 years ago, and it really has been reliable and cheap to own. Many things that have broken were small and easy to fix. Interior is meh, but for a car that was 15-16 grand new in 07, I cant complain too much. Coupe has enough room for 2 people easily, and a 3rd if you have them stretch across the back. I put some bigger wheels and better tires on it for better performance, as well as a tune from trifecta and the GM performance exhaust and it really woke the car up. MPG was average, but I didnt baby it. If you want a cheap car thats easy to fix and very reliable, check one out."

"I really like my Cobalt. It gets me where I need to go and is comfortable to drive someone over 6' may not be all that comfortable and will probably feel cramped. Have taken several out of state trips and it gas mileage has been good. After knee replacement surgery though I'm finding it harder getting in and out."
