It is larger than you first think. The engine is terrific. The size of the whole car is just right. Big enough to carry 4 people, small enough to be fuel efficient, and powerful enough to not require a V6. The stereo is a great design and a joy to work although a little more power would be nice. The paint job on my Cobalt is exceptional. I bought the paint protection. I think it is well worth the price for any car. Overall a great ride for not much money. I looked at Focus, but I think the Cobalt is a better car for less money.
Engine. Stereo. Paint. Finish. LT option
All cars should came with ABS brakes and side air bags as standard, period. I don't care if the gov has to pass a law, or the automakers do it themselves. These items save lives and injuries. Just do it.
