You can spin the statistics any way you want, but with regular maintenance and oil changes practically any car will be reliable.
I agree, i've owned all GM cars before buying my Focus. I looked at a Cobalt and couldnt stand it, the interior is total junk. It also cost more than my Focus and got worse gas mileage. I'm not a fan of small cars by any means, but I do like the Focus.
