Not much to like about it at all. I cant think of one thing (besides the pricing) that is attractive about a Cobalt.

We bought a 2008 Cobalt in December, '07, for my wife. Great car, we love everything about it. Wife always drove luxury cars before, and wanted something smaller.
We have nothing but good things to say about the car. No, it isn't an expensive luxury car, but that isn't what we wanted, so it suits our purpose perfectly...

They are less expensive, yet meet or exceed the reliability of Toyota/Honda. You can't lose! I saw a brand new one advertised for $9000 this weekend. Can't find a Honda for that price anymore. Even the ugly "Fit" is $15,000 if you're lucky.

Were you drinking when you posted this? The Cobalt is nowhere close to the level of Toyota/Honda.

Thats the only things I can say about the car - because I do not own own

A few months back I rented a Ford Focus (sport-wagon) and then a few weeks after that a Cobalt. The difference between them was striking - the Focus drove like a real car, I actually liked it pretty well, and I am mostly into German cars. The Cobalt was very much an "econo-box" and let you know that you had cheaped out at every turn. The Cobalt didn't get that much better MPG than the Focus either.

Just a reference point.

You should drive an SVT sometime.... makes the Focus wagon feel sluggish as heck. The SVT has been called "M3-like" in its feel. Im sure youd like it.

But the Cobalt? Low-rent, ugly as sin, slow (minus the turbo'd SS), weak brakes, bad build quality.
