2006 Chevrolet Cobalt LT 4dr Sedan (2.2L 4cyl 5M)
Car drives great. Don't feel the bumps much but hear them like cracking noises. First few thousand miles were good but in the cold Vermont winters the car took so much gas. About 19 mpg mix of city and highway. It would make loud noises from the heater fan when cold. On ice would lose the car accelerator functionality for about 10 seconds. Even if just one wheel touches some ice - no gas pedal. The car feels sturdy even at high speeds and the steering gets stiffer as we go faster. Car is fast with good pickup and great sound system. The transmission is having trouble already in deciding what gear to take.
Fast and quick in city. Handling not bad for the price. Sound system. Young styling.
Quality. Transmission and suspension need improvement - to much hesitation and noise. Build quality and wind noise. Traction control is definitely a pronounced hazard.
