I think in a years time the cobalt could be a great entry level car (good power, build quality, ride etc) but first year cars are always the guinea pigs. Whenever you have a new frame, underpinnings, electrical etc, there are going to be design and/or building flaws. I am much more of a Ford fan than Chevy, but I can even tell you that the first year the FOrd Focus came out was a NIGHTMARE. There was something like 7-10 recalls and all kinds of little nitpicky problems. Squeaks, leaks, rattles, stalls you name it. Hang in there and hopefully it can be fixed easily.
