Chevy Cobalt

Hi, I am looking at the Cobalt , seems to be well liked by most auto reviewers, how about car-forum? I want a cheap dependable vehicle that is easy on gas, the Toyota and Hondas are nice but expensive,opinions welcome. I now drive a 1995 GrandAm,3.1 V6,was a nice car but at 202000Km it is time to retire it, ride is rough and repairs frequent.

I'd look into a slightly used (02-03) Civic EX or Acura EL. The Cobalt seems to be just a re-bodied Cavalier (not saying it is, just FEELS that way) with the same poor interior and engine that doesnt seem to be excellent on reliability nor have great gas mileage compared to the Corolla or Civic. Plus you know the Civic/EL will be short on shop visits
