2005 Chevrolet Cobalt LT sedan was driven RT from Dallas/FtWorth to New York City when it had less than 200 miles at the beginning of the trip. The car performed beautifully. The handling and steering feed back are excellent. I am over 6 feet and I found the car with proper seat adjustment to be very comfortable and supportive during my long distance drive. Driving between 60 and 65, the driver information system reported I got as much as 35.4MPG on the highway because I used moderation in starting and stoping the car.
My favorite features on this model are the leather seats and the two front seats can be heated during the cold winter season. The XM Satelite Radio is an excellent long distance travel companion. The various controls on the steering wheel are also a definite plus. This car is all most people need.
The seat back releases could work a little smoother
