I would never have considered the cobalt prior to driving it as a rental. I was impressed by the headroom, handling, and quiet firm ride when on a parkway at speeds 60+ I also felt the seats were very comfortable and supportive and the car was overall "fun to drive". I would definitely consider purchasing this car particularly in view of their competitive pricing
The stereo and air conditioning and controls were so much better than my volkswagon passat.
The fabric seats seemed to soil easily and trunk was not as roomy as I would like. Also mileage seemed much lower than expected
