2006 Chevrolet Cobalt Coupe LS 2dr Coupe (2.2L 4cyl 5M)


Review

I've been in the dealership for constant warranty work on this thing. I've got the 2.2 and the terrible Getrag manual transmission. Let's start with the tires. Continentals are junk, if there is moisture on the road, traction has become a thing of the past. Brakes have ceramic pads but terrible rotors. You'll find that they warp rather quick! Engine leaks like a sieve, and I'm only at 12k miles. Needs new head, valve cover gasket and if the main seals leak, those too. Transmission requires you to sit 10-15 seconds at a stop to shift into reverse. Tranny is incredibly weak, it's built to withstand the engine. Anything added for performance is questionable to the tranny. Please note that this is a SAAB designed engine, and an OPEL designed car, its not truly a GM vehicle, and it's starting to show, a GM vehicle wouldn't be this terrible.


Best Features

The warranty, and that sums up my favorite features. I've used it so many times its ridiculous.


Worst Features

New 4 cylinder engine, new transmission, quality tires are a must!

I would recommend this car to anyone. It's a little car with a big heart. Minor problems here and there, but to be expected in a brand new car! I love it and plan to love it for many years to come!


Best Features

Exterior design, trunk size, Pioneer sound system.


Worst Features

Bigger opening of the trunk

2006 Chevrolet Cobalt Coupe LS 2dr Coupe (2.2L 4cyl 5M)


Review

This is a good handling car, with a great ride and somewhat quiet, good looks and good value, huge trunk but small opening. I am everaging 32 MPG and very happy with that. No arm rest on 5spd tranny models, cup holders are too shallow drink tends to tip over in turns, interior is very attractive but extremely cheaply made, the door fabric is pulling away from under the door closing pull cup, American cars depreciate faster than Japaneese cars by a large margin. I am "buried". If you want one buy a used one, it's a decent car


Best Features

Big trunk, good ride and handling. Good looks, peppy motor. 25/34 MPG cty/hwy, good value


Worst Features

Make trunk opening bigger, improve interior quality. Armrest, real cupholder. Better quality = higher residual values

2006 Chevrolet Cobalt Coupe LS 2dr Coupe (2.2L 4cyl 5M)


Review

I have had this car for a while now, and have driven it quite a bit. I would commute 200 miles a day in it and no problems at all. Good gas mileage for what the car offers and plenty of pep in its step. The shift broke about 12k miles into it, dealer fixed under warranty no problem. Fun to drive and plenty of room. Back seat int he coupe is a little small for an adult but plenty for children. I even had a car back into at about 15mph and all it did was scratch my paint on the front bumper! I love this car, and you cant beat the quality for the price!


Best Features

Stereo, handling, engine


Worst Features

Interior quality
