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

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


Review

I've had my Cobalt ("Colby") for almost three years and I've loved every minute of it. Though, like all cars, it has its minor flaws. About a month after getting it, the seal in the door in the back started leaking. A year later they had to replace the whole steering column. Then there was a recall on the cooling system. Now its vibrating. Other than those major things, I love my Cobalt. Sadly I may be getting another car since it's so low to the ground and it always rains in my city.


Best Features

Sound system and smoothness of ride.


Worst Features

Upgraded features and a better looking interior.

Review

I love this car. I have driven it everywhere. It has made a trip from Mobile to Cali and from Cali to Cincinnati. I have put mass miles on this car in the two years I have owned it. I love the comfort, the power (for a 4C) and the stero is awesome! So glad I picked this car! My last new vehicle was an S- 10, and that ended up in the shop 4 times with repairs. So far this will be the first time I have had issues!


Best Features

Radio, white faced gauges, and the easy of the ride!


Worst Features

Well the only problem I have had with my car is that is has just now begun to have the power steering issue! I will be taking it in to get it replaced soon! Other than that the car has been awesome, I would so buy another one!!

Review

I normally drive much more expensive cars, trading in a supercharged Grand Prix GTP for this Cobalt 2.5 years ago, but I think this little car is great! Fantastic mileage, very comfortable on long drives, an automatic transmission that shifts perfectly, good power, good stereo, fun to drive, great visibility and versatile. I normally lease new cars every 3 years, but am planning to buy this one when the lease is up. I've had the key stuck in the ignition, but that's really the only problem and it's an easy inexpensive fix if you know how. The selling dealer's service department is very poor, but I've found another nearby that's far better


Best Features

The automatic transmission, the mileage & just plain fun to drive.


Worst Features

Change the rear-end styling on the sedan. The rest of the car looks fine.
