Work Car, and More
By Jeff Fitzgerald on
2006 Chevrolet Cobalt LT 4dr Sedan (2.2L 4cyl 5M)
We bought this car ostensibly just to go to and from work, using our Subaru Forester for all the "heavy lifting." But I have to say that I enjoy driving this car. Comfortable, handles well, and has a lot of zip. It looks nice, and has been very solid and glitch-free. I had given up on American cars long ago, but I have to say, Chevrolet has earned another chance with this car.
I'm a big boy (5'10", 265 lb.s), and this little car is still roomy and comfortable. It has a sleek, eye-pleasing look and doesn't make me feel like I'm driving an "econo-box."
The automatic headlights leave something to be desired (the dash panel lights don't come on in gloomy weather), and I wish the console armrest was standard. Moving the front cupholders back an inch would be nice.
