Good everyday car.
The Chevy Cobalt that I currently drive is a good everyday car for driving to work etc. and especially for younger people. It's sporty looking enough to be a good vehicle to own. One major thing that I do not like about this car is the fact that the battery is in the trunk. So if your vehicle locks up on you and you don't have an extra set of keys, you can be in trouble with it.
My Cobalt sits at over 70,000miles and I have never had any mechanical issue. It has never failed to start, never makes any strange noises, and gets solid gas mileage. The only issue I had was an electrical one in which the radio failed to shutoff when the car was turned off, and the dealer quickly showed up to fix it. The car handles well under normal circumstances, yet isn't the greatest in snow as it lacks 4 wheel drive. I wish the back seat folded down to expand the trunk area, but I can't complain too much considering it's an economy car. Also, snapping the light covers back on after changing a light can be a hassle, but that is an infrequent thing to deal with. Overall the car performs great in what I feel is the most important criteria, reliability and gas mileage.
West Mountain, Utah
My car gets great gas mileage even though half of my commute is through town. I typically get 33 miles to the gallon and only have to fill up once a week. Even though the engine is smaller, I still have enough power to gain speed quickly. This is a great aspect since freeway entrances can often be short and getting up to speed is important. The interior is of high quality and extremely comfortable. I have even been told that the back seats have adequate leg room even though it is a smaller car. The car came with XM Radio and OnStar which are things that I feel are a great benefit to me. Another aspect that I really like is the ease of getting to the oil filter. I change my own oil and having the oil filter easy to access allows me to change my oil easily and quickly. The car does have some downfalls or things that I do not like. The power windows have had some trouble and the motors have had to be replaced twice. There are also no handles on the roof which my passengers do not like.
