2005 Chevrolet Cobalt Sedan 4dr Sedan (2.2L 4cyl 5M)


Review

Bought this car because I read a lot of positive reviews on it. Then the test drive came and I loved it. I used to drive a 1995 Jeep Cherokee Laredo but I was a victim in a car crash and it was taken away from me. So safety was my key concern and let me tell you, I feel safe in this car!


Best Features

The windshield wipers are great! The driver seat height is cool also, you pump your chair up or down. Also that fast that you can see all the gas, coolant and oil specs with a push of a button.


Worst Features

The back seats are kind of thin, I would make them a little more meaty for comfort.

2005 Chevrolet Cobalt Sedan 4dr Sedan (2.2L 4cyl 5M)


Review

Bought this car used <10000 miles, now have 54000, aside from tires and oil changes no repairs needed. Have had many people of other makes ride in it all compliment the ride. Great gas mileage, have gotten up to 37 highway on extended trips, mostly around 32 daily.


Worst Features

Different material for seating that dosen't show spots, and offer windows and locks standard like some other cars for the same price.

2005 Chevrolet Cobalt Sedan 4dr Sedan (2.2L 4cyl 5M)


Review

I get 35-36 on the highway often more. I get 26-27 in the city/burbs. I think people need to get beyond the car the Cobalt replaces and enjoy this car. It is very cute and I get compliments from all ages. I know it isn't a luxury car but it is fun for non-hot rodders of all ages, that doesn't mean you are boring either. Put a fin on a car and it is a sports car


Best Features

Gas mileage and looks. Some colors look better than others. Very simple to learn.


Worst Features

I get a bit of wind noise on the highway

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


Review

I bought my Cobalt brand new with 12 miles on it. From day one it has been nothing but problems. It is in the shop 22 times in the first 30 days because the air conditioning was leaking in the floor board. I called GM and they refused to do anything about it. After that I had to have 4 gear shifts replaced and the linkage in my transmission replaced. It also had electrical issues but everytime I took iot in the dealer could not pull the code because the computer automatically reset itself when you turn off the car. I will never own another one


Best Features

Does get good gae mileage on long trips


Worst Features

Just build it to last more than 2 years
