The Colbalt is an overall great car. It isn't necessarily the zippiest, but it is fun to drive and gets pretty good mileage. The interior is comfortable and has excellent safety features. I would recommend it to anyone. I have the 2LT with sunroof and would definitely suggest those upgrades for the "fun" factor and the extras. Having a USB input for an ipod is nice. The windshield is perfect for mounting a GPS. I also absolutely love having remote start. OnStar is wonderful for peace of mind. And the XM free trial is a lot of fun as well. My only complaints so far are that there isn't much storage around the driver, and there is no lock on the glove box. Also, the speedometer isn't very bright during overcast days or dawn or dusk, it's good at night and during daylight. These few things are easily forgiven because of it's other great features. It's a great car!
I love this car. It's been years since I've owned a car. I had a Dodge Ram truck for over 5 years so switching back to a car was tough but a great decision. Speed and pick up are great, body style is very sporty. NOT a family car since it's a 2 door & the back seat area is tight. Love the gas mileage. Highly recommend this vehicle for 1st time car buyers as well as anyone looking for style, comfort and affordability.
I love the Car only complaints are the head rests to sit in a complete up right position it forces my head forward a bit and gives me a crick in my neck... I have just adjusted to sitting back more then I like. and well the cheap plastic they are using now days for the interrior is really hard to keep clean. Other then that the car looks and drives great. Great Gas saver with just enough room for me, my fiance, and his 2 kids.
