I drive an 07 cobalt. I'm 5'4". I think the seat is comfortable, but the headrest sucks. It pushes your head forward. (not as bad as the Aveo though, I test drove that, it was terrible)
I really like it's info screen. It tells you how many mpg you're getting (usually about 30 for me), how far you can go on that tank, avg speed, when you need to change the oil...
The back seats fold down, so it can carry quite a bit of stuff.
It's a pain if you need to get a new key, but a lot of cars are like that now (I wanted an extra) and it likes to beep a lot- seatbelt, door, whatever.
No problems with it so far after 14,000ish miles. Well, some jerk put a small dent in the hood while it was parked.
Oh, if its unhappy with the gas cap it says something like "check gas cap" instead of "check engine" which is nice.
The battery is not by the engine.
Any specific questions?

So- the question I have-- does anyone have a Chevy Cobalt or a Mitsubishi Lancer? These are two of the cars I'm looking at. Any thoughts on these two?
