I just hit 18000 miles and have yet to return to the dealer for anything other than oil changes. I drive from White Plains to NYC daily, approx 120 miles. This car is solid as a rock. I traded in an Elantra for this and the difference is night and day. The Cobalt feeling like a much more expensive car. I get compliments all the time on how sporty she looks. It's comfortable, and feels much bigger than it is. No leaks, squeaks and any other annoying problems.If I had to complain about anything it would be the gas milage. For it's size the engine seems thirsty. I average apprx 24 hwy and 17 city mpg.
The build quality is superb. Pioneer stereo is top quality, a must have and the styling.
Gas mileage should be much better for a car of this size. I only have the 2.2 liter engine.
