"This was my first call I purchased on my own. I wasn't too sure about it at first when it had an issue with the fuel sensor. The gas gauge would go from full to empty randomly at times.
This issue was fixed within the first year at long last and the car had no issues for quite a bit after that. The car is a workhorse honestly. I drove it quite a bit the first year, putting 30k on it quickly. After that, it slowly accumulated miles. It really didn't begin getting miles until it was 6 years old.
Of a 9 year old car, it still rides rather well. I have had a few issues here and there with mostly wear and tear issues. Beyond the fuel sensor issue at the beginning, it hasn't had a lot of work done to it.
One thing I do dislike is the room in it. This car is a coupe body but even so, it feels smaller than the 4 doors. Even the 4 doors are small but at least have a slight bit more room than the coupes.
I do love to still drive this car. It is fun to take on the back roads or take down the highway."
"This car has stopped while driving numerous times. Even after the recalls have been fixed. There are very serious issues with the power steering and electrical system in these cars. I have 54 pages of consumers who are having the same exact issues we are with this car. Obviously it is not just one bad Cobalt, but many."
Pros: "Comfortable, Good mileage, Great to get around"
Cons: "Slow, didnt like the color"

"Financed this car to boost my credit up and to have something to take me around, ended up being a heck of a vehicle, love the mialge, filled up everytime with less than 30 dollars. Drove to tallahassee from miami a couple of times with no problems and also to orlando. Looking for a camaro or mustang now, time to upgrade!"
"I bought this car in 2009 and have had it ever since. I use it for work every day and I can go to work a for approximately 8 days without fueling up. its a 45 mile round trip. I love this car but my spouse hates it cause of the space and the rear its a little bit higher than the front. But, other than that I plan to keep it till it falls apart."
Cons: "breaks down, uncomfy, small gas tank,no power"

"I bought this car certified pre-owned with 30,000 some odd miles on it. At first it was alright. The fuel mileage was a nice change compared to my F-150 (which I never should have gotten rid of). Then all the problems started. I had to change the fuel pump twice in 1 month. The right blinker didn't automatically turn off. Going up any hill kills any good gas mileage. I couldn't even make a 400 mile long trip without stopping for gas. The center conceal makes no sense for storage. Very noisy when I'd drive on the high way. The seats are very uncomfortable. Every time I turned around it seemed like a new problem would pop up. A strut was broken, my tire gauge monitor went out, the air bag needed serviced, the heat plate decided to fall off. This car worked as a commuter car for school, and was actually killer in the snow but always hydroplaned in the rain. I'm super excited to see it gone."
