2006 Chevrolet Cobalt SS 2dr Coupe (2.4L 4cyl 5M)

Review

This is a acceptable car. My Jeep Cherokee (inline 6 cly) was only getting 14 mpg. I needed better mpg. for my 50 mile daily commute. Right now I am avg. 28mpg. and expect that to go up as engine is broken in. This car has some pep but nothing as exciting as Mitsubishi or Acura. Performance is good. Comfort is good for 100 miles but, I would not want to take a 500 mile trip in this car. Fun- to-Drive, the manual transmission was a lot more fun to drive than the automatic. It just felt like it had more "omph" in the manual trans. car. The SS supension is a lot of fun on winding turns but, big pot holes are definitely felt. Lt version suspension was much better for "in town" daily driving.

Favorite Features

XM radio. I've never had one of these before and did not want to pay the extra money for it however, now that I have tried it I will probably keep it. (first 3 months are free) 2.4L motor Sport suspension 17" Wheels and Pirelli Tires (very sticky) Value! A good commuter car for a good price

Suggested Improvements

It is difficult to see out rear window. I put one of those little round "circle dot" mirrors on each of the door mirrors and this was a big improvement for visibility. I wish the car had some sort of back up sensor to assist in backing out of parking spaces or out of garage
