I bought this car about a month ago and have put 2000Km on it in that time, it had 64,000Km on it when I bought it. In that time, it sounds like a wheel is loose when I use the brakes, the trans seems way too low geared as well. Road and intake noise is really bad, the muffler broke apart inside, and the stock sound system is junk. The power isn't bad (2200 OHC 5 speed) I personally think my Lada Nivas are better built and more reliable vehicles, fun to drive factor is better as well. The Cobalt is definitely a better car but also with them the handling gose out the window at highway speeds.
Power trunk release.
These cars need the 3100 SFI V6 with a 5 speed, and better sound deadening. The other BIG thing is the the radio, what a joke. GM needs to get back into the '82-96 A-body type quality, at least you could rely on those cars.
