2010 Chevrolet Cobalt LT 2.2L from North America
The right window (it is a coupe) squeaked horribly when rolled down, and the dealer was not very good at fixing it.
There was a recall on the power steering about 2 weeks after I bought it. The dealer fixed it for free, but it was still a time commitment.
Dealer has high prices for general maintenance.
The engine is VERY loud for its size.
The quality of the interior plastics is exceptionally poor.
The center console is directly over the parking brake when it is down. This causes you to choose between an armrest and the ability to brake in an emergency.
The trunk release is inside a drawer, which is completely impractical.
If locked with the remote, the car alarm will go off if you try to unlock it with a key.
Car gets worse gas mileage than I expected. I suspect this is because I have the MyLink Technology Package, which includes 16" touring tires rather than 15" passenger tires.
Car handles well.
Tolerably quick in second gear, but 60-70 is fairly slow.
Anti-lock brakes not standard.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

I feel the same way about mine. If GM had spent a few more bucks on the materials used in this car, it would have been untouchable compared to a Toyota, Honda, etc. I got mine on clearout for a good deal, so I can't complain too much.

If the characteristics touched on in the review are called "good" by the original poster, he or she must be very easily pleased.
