Had this car for 6 months now. The problems have snowballed. Had 110k km on it when I bought it. Since then the transmission seals have leaked horribly and the back struts rattle continuously when in motion. Definitely a decent looking car, yet the automatic is certainly very slow shifting. The repairs have added up in a few months and I've had enough of Chevy for a lifetime.
Looks, fuel miser.
The transmission is sub-par in the automatic, and should have been improved before the Cobalt came out.
