"My version of this car is all stock. No power windows or locks, 2.2 engine, with a manual transmission. However, even for lacking all those options, it still has cruise control! I bought this vehicle with 95k on it, and so far the only semi major repair I've had to make is replacing the throttle body. The parts are cheap, maintenance for the DIY person is easy, and once you replace the original clutch with a stage 2 this car has alot of get up and go!"

Pros: "Loads of fun, reasonably priced, fun to customize"

Cons: "Short first gear, wheel hop in second"

"As a sports coupe, and Chevrolets first attempt to match the Japanese imported tuner, the Cobalt SS SC is really quite a car. Stock 205 horsepower with additional SC upgrade kits is nothing to overlook. The standard 5 speed tranny does a good job of getting the power to the road, with minimal drawbacks i.e. The very short first gear and on optimal traction situations a little wheel hop in second. Like any car the driver has a large roll in keeping things like that under control. The styling of the car, in my opinion, is quite nice and reflects the cars target market, young wanna-be racers. Dont let that fool you, the car will deliver a hard blow to any competiter that wants to line up next to it. The SS SC Cobalt is tons of fun to drive, and would make a great addition to any tuner racers arsonal."

Too many problems!

Pros: "Runs good when it will start."

Cons: "Too many to list!"

"Although I have always been a chevy kind of girl, this car should've never come off the assembly line! Too many problems to list, but the major one is the ignition. It won't let me take the key out of the ignition even after spending $100 to put in a new parking shift assembly. Keeps draining the battery. Now there is a recall on the electronic power steering. It just never ends. Although this car runs like a champ when it does run, the rest of the car is a piece of junk! I am trading it in the first chance I get!"
