This car is amazing. My parents recently got this car for me. I had no idea how to drive a manual, but this car is easy to learn in. The gas mileage is great!

2006 Chevrolet Cobalt Sedan LTZ 4dr Sedan (2.2L 4cyl 4A)


Review

I have 40,000 plus miles on my Cobalt and average 30 mpg during my 100 mile daily commute. I average about 40 mph overall. (On the highway I get 35 mpg when driving about 60 mph) Have had no issues. Car was about $10,000 less than others I was looking at. Interior is "cheap"...but it runs great and gets me to work. Original tires only lasted 40K miles, now switched to Goodyear Assurance Triple Treds, which I have had before and are great tires.


Best Features

XM radio, seat heaters.


Worst Features

Upgrade padding in seats.

Review

It's unfortunate that GM gave themselves a bad rep in the 80s and 90s, because this little gem seems to have gone unnoticed. Ours has some upgrades, but the best thing about it over the LS is the wheels. The alloy rims are wider than the LS and is makes a huge difference on the road. It feels so much more solid that the standard rims! The car is quiet at all speeds. The interior trim doesn't have issues yet, but judging from the reviews, I think we'll look in to after market upgrades. All in all, I think this vehicle is on par with the Accord or Camry, althouh the interior is not as refined. The one thing I would stress is get the premium wheels, it makes all the difference in the world!


Best Features

Peppy little engine with great gas mileage!


Worst Features

Interior trim. Also, I like to see the temp gauge... not a digital readout that I have to push a button to see... maybe it's just me.

Review

So far my Cobalt beats my expectations. Very fun to drive! Worth purchasing the "extras", leather, moonroof, etc. Only drawback is 21MPG in the city. Traded my Camry and am very happy so far!


Best Features

Moonroof, peppy engine, Pioneer stero system


Worst Features

Better mileage, although I only have city mileage thus far

Review

We owned a z24 Cavalier before we purchased this car and I like this car even more than my Cavalier. It is a excellent purchase. I love my Cobalt. Lots of room because we have two children and they don't complain about it like they did the Cavalier.


Best Features

Chrome detailing in car, and the way it handles


Worst Features

None
