THERE ARE PROBLEMS WITH THE IGNITION SWITCH AND LOCK CYLINDERS.THE ENGINE WORKS WELL AND THE DESIGN IS COMPACT AND EASILY ACCESSIBLE. IT ALSO GETS GREAT GAS MILEAGE. HOWEVER, IT WAS A HEADACHE TO CONSTANTLY HAVE TO DEAL WITH THE DEALERSHIP CONSTANTLY WITH MULTIPLE RECALLS AND DEFECTS IN THE PRODUCT I PURCHASED."

"Like the old English sports cars, absolutely the most fun (Cobalt SS sedan)to drive, but electrical problems keep happening. Pure driver's car, great front seats (back is torture), steering feedback, brakes, acceleration phenomenal. Stereo is good for FM and DVD, iTunes it's fantastic! Invisible to police, no one believes this sedan can accelerate so fast."

One of the best cars for the money!

"I bought this car new in 2009 and I have traveled extensively throughout the US. I grew up in the car business and have driven professionally and I can say that this car has been well worth the money. As far as comfort... I had an Impala with all the bells and whistles, leather -heated seats. etc. and this cobalt was far more comfortable to drive over long periods 12 to 24hrs cross country. I have had it now over 5yrs and would love to purchase another bur unfortunately, GM chose not to carry this model in their lineup so I will have to go to Honda now for a 2 door, manual FWD. Sorry, GM, you goofed not to improve on this car and keep it."
