2006 Chevrolet Cobalt Sedan LT 4dr Sedan (2.2L 4cyl 5M)


Review

over all the car has been great the dealer has been very great! only problem I did have with the car was the steering shaft was making noises and had too be replaced at 33k miles. GM took care of problem. I just put new tires on the car it now has 44k miles on it. Brakes have never been changed and still have tons of life in them. Mine is a stick transmission 5 speed and the trans is very tight and fun too shift. sometimes is a little hard too get in first gear. But over all I would say the cobalt is a good car still needs a little refinement with some interior parts and rattles..


Best Features

the stick shift is very tight not like early 90's GM cars. Has good amount of power. I would run it with a honda and I think I could win


Worst Features

work on some of the rattles, better seat cloth,

Review

I have had this car for 3 years now, I bought it brand new and I love it. The only minor issue with the car that I hear from a lot of Colbolt owners and my selfs is the radio/cd player. It messes up sometimes. Other than that it gets great gas mileage, I haven't changed the breaks yet and there still good. I love the car all around and think it is a great buy for a first time buyer or a teenage kid.


Best Features

The interior lights go off if you forget to turn it off. It tells you when you need a oilchange, and when you are out of fuel. All around the little display buttons in the front tells you exactly what you need to know about your car.


Worst Features

Trunk opening bigger, seat cloths better, and fix the issue with the radio/cd player.

Review

Where to start..for starters my cobalt was one of the many GM vehicles that suffered from a poor A/C system. It develops mold on the evaporator and there's nothing I can do. Even after a expensive cleaning the smell comes back after a month...it's so horrible like Old musty shoes. I have 65,000 on it and for about a month it has been stopping abruptly when going under 15mph(signs of fuel filter going). So of course I'm looking for another vehicle but with a resale of a mere $4000 its going to be awhile. Do yourself a favor....do not purchase a cobalt.


Best Features

Fuel economy held its name.


Worst Features

Build cobalt's to run after 50,000 miles. A/C system that functions properly. Armrests would be nice.

Review

Fuel pump went out at 58,000. NEVER buying another GM product. Horrible gas mileage, impossible to work on and mostly dealer only parts. High maintenance for a cheap car.


Best Features

Acceleration and traction


Worst Features

Better fuel pump design, arm rest, better underhood accessibility, more comfortable seats, OEM parts availability
