My first two cars were a Cavalier and Sunfire. The Cobalt by far is of much higher quality and is made far better. I originally was considering the Aveo when I went shopping for my 3rd car, but the quietness and smoothness of the ride got my hooked to the Cobalt. It's wonderful to drive in the snow. I feel very safe in it. After a 9 hour road trip it's still comfortable.
Sporty looking interior, roomy, looks great on the road, MP3 plug-in
No center arm rest, but I got used to it. A strut started leaking at 15 K and was told this was a common problem. Not having a light grey as an interior option/ or change the material- it gets dirty very easily.
