When I purchased the Cobalt last August, within 2 weeks abs and t/c light came on. Took it in dealership 4 times to get it fixed. So far no light has been on. I got the satin interior and the "paint" is starting to chip and come off. This is not suppose to happen being a 9 month old car. Interior is somewhat cheap looking, but performance and gas mileage is great as long as you don't have a lead foot. Hardly any room for backseat passengers.
The ride is nice. Stereo is very good but they slipped in low grade Pioneer speakers. Plenty of pep. Dash lighting. Don't have to spend much on gas.
Make the satin parts made of metal not sprayed on paint on plastic. I was in a Scion XB and it had metal for trim pieces. Wish they designed it so I could do my own rotation of tires with only one jack. Need better selection of aftermarket items.
