2006 Chevrolet Cobalt LS 2dr Coupe (2.2L 4cyl 5M)
Bought an 06 LS coupe Dec 2005. With in 1½ year had 80,000 miles on it ( a lot of free way driving). MPG is 25 city, 36 highway. At 89K CEL light on - was an old hose. Replaced it (cost $20 for a 2 inch hose). Now, getting 30 MPG city and right over 40 highway. Interior could be better, at 115K, still on original rotors, shoes, pads, shocks, exhaust & clutch. Last dealer check shows no issues with any of them. Had 2 recalls on it so far. Paid $12K for it and was worth it!
Quiet at idle, decent performance for small 2.2 engine, ride is OK, handling is better than expected.
Interior quality, better/stronger A/C, seats that are easier to clean ans less likely to stain. Overall, one of the top 5 cars I have had (this is car # 16 for me).
