I've had this car for a few years and think I can give an informed evaluation. Overall, the car has met or exceeded my expectations.

Pros:

basic, reliable, economical transportation
made in USA
reasonably priced
good fuel economy (could be better though)
responsive power train
ample trunk space
comparatively low cost dealer parts and service
reasonably good base sound system
convienient access to controls (like the digital information center)
easy DIY cleaning and service

Cons:

ingress/egress difficult for larger/older frames like mine
mediocre seats (inferior comfort and cover material)
cramped interrior space due to low ceiling height and styling decisions
small tunk opening

Maybe I should, it could save me the hassle of trying to fit a box in my trunk for ten minutes then giving up and putting it on my passenger seat.

You've got four inches on me... I'm just shy of 200lbs.

Once I'm in I'm ok..it's "climbing" in and out that's difficult ....And the rear seating arrangement in the coupe seems almost an afterthought. I rarely use the back seat though, so that's not a problem really.

I had a Toyota Echo before this car and getting in and out of it was about as difficult as bellying up to the kitchen table. :)

When comparing the two, my sense is that with the Cobalt, GM chose styling over function where perhaps Toyota, with the Echo, was more inclined to choose the alternative.
