"I always loved the Chevy Cavalier. The older models were the best. The dealer told me the Chevy Cobalt was designed just like it. I was hesitant at first. After owning this car for 5 years I Love it. I wouldn't want any other car. I have had my share of Fords, and GMC's and never owned them longer than a year or two. I was amazed that my car after 5 years had just rolled over to 100,000 and I didn't have to put as much money in to it as what the original cost was. GREAT CAR. If I ever have to buy another car it would be the same. Only thing different is I would add cruise control. Even if I had to get an older model. LOVE MY COLBALT!!!"

Best we ever had, no major repair ever.

"The cat. converter & oxigen sensors replace at 132,000 miles. NEVER had to add oil between oil changes, NEVER NOT ONCE. Still getting 35 MPG with 150,283 Miles. Only things done were oil changes and third set of brakes were at 125,000 mi. with new rotors & drums. Still has the original anti-freeze, still checks out as good."

Love My Cobalt LT SS

"I have one spiffy little car! It super sharp looking has all the extra's. It drives like a dream. Gets great gas mileage! It always looks sharp on the road. Very reliable. Had an ignition switch recall. No big deal. They fixed it and I never had any problems with it anyway. Love this car! It's a keeper!"

Pros: "OK mileage (31 mpg), low cost, reliable so far"

Cons: "Cheap flimsy car with lots of recalls"

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

"My Cobalt has never had any mechanical problems. But it has been recalled four times (steering, shifter, ignition switch, and another ignition switch recall). The mileage is pretty good (about 31 mpg). It has very little acceleration, but I don't feel unsafe in it. Given a second chance, I wouldn't buy it."
