An Awesome GM vehicle!
Nothing so far.
I purchased my new Cobalt in October as a birthday gift for myself and I am very pleased with my decision. The car drives relatively smoothly for a car of its size.
The 5-speed manual fits the 2.2 Ecotech like a glove. Plenty of power from that feisty little engine. The gas mileage is awesome, my city is about 30 mpg, my highway pushes 40 mpg, well above the EPA estimates. I do admit that I have hardly ever "got on it" with a hard acceleration or excessive speeds which probably contributes to the extra MPG.
The only thing I don't really like about the car is the rattling of the driver side door handle and vent. This is a result of the speaker vibration in the door, which is actually a decent sound system for a basic stock model.
All in all though, I am very pleased with this vehicle, at least as of this time. It's still a bit early into ownership to remark on reliability.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
