2005 Chevrolet Cobalt Coupe LS 2dr Coupe (2.2L 4cyl 5M)


Review

What can I say..I LOVE IT. The gas mileage is wonderful and it's very reliable as far as dependibilty. I've always been a Chevrolet girl and with gas prices going up here in northern California it helps to have something that last longer on gas

2005 Chevrolet Cobalt Coupe LS 2dr Coupe (2.2L 4cyl 5M)


Review

Have had the Cobalt since the beginning of August. Great car with some exceptions. I have had some major/minor glitches. My back window shattered out of no where, my sunroof switch cover fell off and has not been replaced yet, my car is rattling, and my emergency break light seems to come on at random when driving.


Best Features

The Pioneer sound system is great, the ride is smooth. Quiet ride as well.


Worst Features

Obvious kinks, still in it's first 6 months of ownership.

2005 Chevrolet Cobalt Coupe LS 2dr Coupe (2.2L 4cyl 5M)


Review

I didn't know much about the Cobalt before looking at it, but I read up on reviews and such. Basically it sounded like a reliable car because it's an updated version of the Cavalier, so it didn't seem like a gamble of a first model car since it's an update on another model. Overall I really like the Cobalt LS coupe. It's reliable and seems like it's going to last for a good amount of time. The design is nice but could use a little updating to compete better with foreign cars. Only general complaints are the bad blind spots due to small rear windows and poor interior lighting and the fairly cheap plastic interior.


Best Features

Oil system, sporty look, Pioneer sound system has deep rich sound, decent gas mileage, large amount of trunk space, and pretty fun to drive.


Worst Features

Dome light (the lights under the rear view mirror are nice but not always practical) increased size of rear windows to decrease the dangerous blind spots (i feel like I'm guessing when changing lanes) Rear window wiper, wider opening to trunk, lights in vanity, and a lock on glove compartment.

2005 Chevrolet Cobalt Coupe LS 2dr Coupe (2.2L 4cyl 5M)


Review

This is the best car that you could buy in its class. This car is one of the quietest cars I have been in. Built with high quality and great fit and finish. A lot of the critics talk about the cheap interior? My car has leather heated seats that are nicer than most expressive cars. I love the no glare dash and the satin chrome interior. The car also has chrome on the guage cluster, the radio controls, also on the shifter. I don't know what they are talking about. You guys can keep your wood grain dash, or borrow your mom's car. As far as the power goes it is very responsive with a good torque. If you are thinking of buying this car go drive the competition and then drive the Cobalt.


Best Features

Love the sun roof and 7 speaker premium sound system. 1SB sport package is a must. Leather heated seats.


Worst Features

Make more of them.

Review

The coupe gets great gas mileage and I should have got the sedan. This car is very dangerous to switch lanes as the rear window is extremely small and you can barely see out of it when checking your blind spot. You'll probably want to get one of those small round mirrors to put on the side mirror or cut off the roof (of course not possible, but sure would be safer) as I'm hesitant to drive freeways unless my girlfriend is with me to check the traffic in the right lane.


Worst Features

Chevy really needs to fix their blind spot. Especially in such a small car, it's almost crucial to see your blind spots and if it wasn't for that, it would be an okay car.
