Engine is quiet and smooth.
However, interior could be more comfortable as seats are a little too firm.
Interior materials seem cheap and fit of trim fabric is somewhat uneven.
Paint appears to be top notch.
Overall fit of body panels is quite good and I have yet to hear any squeaks or rattles.
Car corners well and road noise is kept to a minimum.
Engine could be faster, but is adequate for everyday purposes.
I average 25 mpg in the city and 27 mpg on the highway. Highway gas mileage could be higher.
Nice stock stereo system.
Backseat is surprisingly roomy.
I would say this car has been reliable. Everybody seems down on GM at the moment, but from the car to the dealership I have had nothing but a positive experience to report. This is the 2nd new car I have owned ( besides the used cars ) , the first being a 2000 VW Beetle. The Beetle at the same amount of mileage already had numerous rattles, the window buttons fell off and I started having engine problems. So far, I am ahead with the Cobalt.
