Cobalt issues, water leaks
The 2010 Cobalt LT is a small 4 door sedan. Its trunk is hard to lift up and there is no trunk release inside of the car by the driver. The shifting column is between the front seats instead of near the steering wheel. It is a reliable car, however the battery runs down easily if you forget to turn the lights off and leave it for even an hour. Then after the battery dies you cannot take the key out of the ignition and have to get it jumped. The car does not warn you as you are exiting the vehicle that you have left your lights on. The nice thing about needing to jump start it is that there is a jumping port located underneath the hood because in order to access the actual battery you would need to get in the trunk. The door handles are cheap and break off easily and take over $300 to fix. The driver side airbag leaks water any time it rains which is a known issue with these vehicles to which no recall is present. The seat belt is annoying to deal with but there is a user fix to that.
