2005 Chevrolet Cobalt LS 4dr Sedan (2.2L 4cyl 5M)
The clutch failed on this vehicle at 2,850 miles. Found that cruise control did not work after picking up from clutch repair and the transmission seemed to "clunk" into place after each gear change after repair. Returned to dealership and after "bleeding the lines" the car will shift gears although not smoothly. The plastic pieces on the interior of the car are warping and the "door" to the trunk button has been replaced twice. After the cruise control was replaced the plastic panel in the passenger leg area "popped off" and will need to be replaced. Fun to drive when running, but I cannot afford to be at dealership every week for repairs.
Good gas mileage and zippy in maneuverability. Cute car. Minimal blind spots for visibility.
Higher quality plastics in interior. Smoother shifting in manual transmission. Clutch that lasts more than 3 months.
