Leaps and bounds above all the other cars in it's class right now. My only complaint would be the typical "plain" design on the interior that Chevy is famous for. Build quality seems improved over Chevy's of the past. My In-laws have an Impala SS and it's a couple of years old and haven't seen any of the Chevy-Famous Squeaks that usually pop up in older Chevy's. Good Car, Skip the Corolla & The Honda, pick up a Cobalt today, you'll be glad you did.
145 HP Engine, Don't have to worry so much about on/off ramps and making left hand turns anymore. Ultra smooth shifting, Engine at high revs has a great sound to it. Placement of the CD Player and controls seems very easy to get to. Handling is excellent I'm 6'3 with lots of room to spare.
Visibility could be better. Some blind spots that take getting used to (in the coupe) Seats are a bit too small, but otherwise comfortable. Would have preferred to have the cooling/oil gauges on the cluster instead of the DIC. selections.
