if she needs a comfortable daily driver that seats 4 get the corrolla or the scion tC. nice two seater will be a 7th gen or 6th gen celica ST or GT. roomy in the back for average sized people and they run for ever... even when you beat them to the ground with constant redlineing and abuse itll still run like new.
if she likes to run or drive the car hard best bang for the buck car is a used SRT-4 , cobalts are going to be cheap and will rape most cars on the road. 95-02 civics.

dont get a chevy. thats the worst thing you could do. stupid americans dont know how to make cars. Ne way i'd say go with the tc or the corrolla.
actually, American made cars are making a (slow) comeback in the realm of quality. i could see what you said being true 10 or even 5 years ago, but now domestic sport compacts are much more reliable than before.
