"I bought this car at 20000 miles need one fast and it was cheap. First couple years no issues except recalls then started to hear a grinding noise in front tires replaced both wheel bearings at about 50000 miles. Then drive down highway check engine light comes on bring to dealer the throttle body sensor went bad $300 to fix, now at 124000 the chain in the motor that drives oil pump broke no check engine light or limp mode just ran till started knocking and motor is toast $3000 to fix a $2000 car.Oil changes were done at 3000 miles and ran synthetic oil Dealer did all recalls before looking into what was wrong so they could charge GM I have driven GM almost 30 yrs no more new GM"

Cons: "Dull interior"

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

"I have owned (2) cobalts in my lifetime, the first was the 2.4l SS and the second was the 2.0 turbocharged SS, Both of them where really good cars, and I never had any issues with them, the 08 SS cobalt that I currently own is a very fun car to drive, the interior is lacking just a bit, but overall these cars are the big bang for your buck. They are reliable and occasionally you can beat the average mustang out on the road. I love these cars and I would recommend them to anyone looking for a reliable go fast car."

"I bought this car new off the lot in 2005. In ten years of ownership it only required regular oil changes. I feel like I really lucked out on this car. It ran like a dream, and looked great inside and out. I never even replaced the battery until right before I sold it. In the end though, it had a problem with shutting off while driving, which is a pretty serious issue. There was an issue with a recall on the ignition switch which I think could have been the problem. I bought a new battery and that didn't solve anything. Overall I have never regretted buying the car. Definitely worth the $13,000 I spent on it. I sold it for $800 to a family friend that wanted to fix the ignition problem. As far as I'm aware it's still going with minimum maintenance."

Pros: "great engine, looks, pionner speakers, big trunk"

Cons: "nonsliding sunvisors, small trunk opening"

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

Looks good, wheels came from the dealer, as well as the leather.

"My car has the SS's 2.4L engine just not supercharged or turbocharged. It is perfect and shows no signs of any leaking of any fluids. Bulletproof engine. Only thing I would change on the engine is that the exhaust note outside isn't that aggressive. Exterior is sporty. Only thing I wish I could change is that there aren't any premade lights that make it look like a GTR, which is possible, I've seen it done. Interior is comfortable, the radio and speakers work like a charm. Leather is comfy and makes people sigh in comfort. Only things I wish I could change are that the sun visors don't extend in any way. The trunk opening is kinda small, doable but not as big as it could be. 4 cup holders, 2 in front, 2 in back. The cup holders in front have a removable thing that makes the hole bigger for your cup. Another thing is that I have the 6 disk CD changer but my armrest only holds 5 CDs."

"Salvaged car bought in April 2008 made in 2006. Love this car but with growing family need more seats. It recently has had some shaking, and slow drive til it picks up speed. Believe it may be the engine. Wish I could keep it. Some paint removed on hood cosmetic only. There is a dent driver side great. Should be easy pop out job. Amazing gas mileage."
