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


This is the worst decision I ever made. $18,000 down the drain. 3 days after I drove the Cobalt off of the lot, one of the fog lights went out. 2 weeks later, the other went out. The CD player often reads "ERR" and refuses to work, or says "NONE" when there is a CD in there, and won't eject the CD. A month after buying it, the front rims fell apart and my front grill is hanging half-way off. My emergency break and high beams lights flash/stay-on randomly when NEITHER are in use. And after only 17,000 k mi, the transmission went up. This car is of the cheapest quality and was the poorest investment I have ever made. Two thumbs down to the 2005 Chevrolet Cobalt.

Best Features

Mine came with the optional body kit and rims, which is just about the only nice thing. The digital mileage display is also nice.

Worst Features

Cheap interior quality. There's no power locks, windows, seats, or mirrors. This is 2005, get it together. Stereo is of the worst quality. Not mechanically sound; I feel like I'm driving a huge Lego.
