I have never really had any major issues with my Chevrolet Cobalt. I get great gas mileage and I've had no major electrical issues. It is currently above 100,000 miles and the car typically only needs an oil change, air filters changed, etc. All it requires is the typical maintenance needs that all cars need over the years.
Story
I used this vehicle to move into my very first home. Made several trips with it across town and it fit several full size boxes as well as miscellaneous things in the trunk. It always helps me out in a pinch!
Pros
Great gas mileage and it's the perfect car for getting around the city as well. Little rust issues. I love the look of the car. It's sleek and perfect for up to 4 people to fit comfortably. Also has a great trunk for storing things as well as for fitting packages from shopping trips.
Cons
The doors handles have silver lining to cover the plastic handles and those have been pealing off slowly over the past few years. If I am not careful, I do cut myself on them. The mirrors on the visors have also pulled off over the past few years. I don't know if this has anything to do with the actual manufacturing of the car or if it's just the normal wear and tear of a vehicle with over 100,000 miles on it. I've also had to replace the water pump and have some work done on the air conditioning system.

2007 Chevrolet Cobalt - Quite satisfied.

I like that it is small enough to make parking easy, but is still a four-door vehicle. It is large enough that I feel safe driving it, but the payments were low enough that I could afford it. It has lasted for over 100,000 miles without needing major repairs.
Story
This car held up even when I visited my friends out in the boonies. Driving through mud and gravel and parking in pastures was no problem. My friends were ready to laugh at me. They were sure that this little car couldn't do it, but I proved them wrong.
Pros
It looks good and has held up well for the price. I really like the way I have good parking control, because the wheel turn is tight. It is also very reliable -- I can't think of one time that it didn't get me to work on time. There is also a lot of trunk space for a small car. If you fold down the back seats, you can get some fairly large items in the trunk/folded seats area.
Cons
The stereo and CD player went out after about five years. Some of the buttons on the steering wheel are a little hard to understand.
