2007 Chevrolet Cobalt Coupe LS 2dr Coupe (2.2L 4cyl 5M)


Review

I was looking into something sporty and reliable. The black Chevy Cobalt Coupe (not the sedan - wasn't fond of the four door) definitely had both! Can't beat the price: under $13k - brand new! Especially for what it has to offer. I've had my car for about half a year and it still responds as it did the when I put in it's first miles. It's not the SS of course, but you gotta love the pick up and handling. The gas mileage is average - I guess I was expecting a bit more (but not bad to be honest). This car is great for 2 people and if you want to put some people in the back, front seat gotta scoot up (depending on people's size). Love the overall design, but mostly impressed with it's price.


Favorite Features

Digital displays buttons on steering wheel. Dark - almost black - carpet. Great room in the front. Good stock stereo. Big trunk. Love the overall structure on the exterior. Great on tight turns. I tinted the windows and back lights and the car totally looks slick. Would look clean just a bit dropped!


Suggested Improvements

No power locks/windows on an 07? Come on. (had to install the power locks myself). Doors have 45 & 90 degree open, so sometimes it can swing open too far - careful! Trunk is big, but opening is small? Would totally love arm rests! Backing out can be hard - blind spots. Test it first to be comfortable!

2007 Chevrolet Cobalt Coupe SS 2dr Coupe (2.4L 4cyl 5M)


Review

I really like this car a lot. It's my 1st brand new car and 1st 4 cyl. It's a blast to drive for what it is and I love the sound system. I love the laser blue, i was told there was only 1 more blue 5 speed like it within 200m radius. My old cars were T/A's so its still slow to me but its quick enougbh to be fun and handles very well in turns. I got a lot more than what I was expecting for this little 4 cyl. Now to get a procharger


Favorite Features

The color, sound system and how it levels how when you smoke tires


Suggested Improvements

Dont kill the S/C next year. Let the people find the car. Get it into games. Still not many people know about how good this car is for tuning

2007 Chevrolet Cobalt Coupe LS 2dr Coupe (2.2L 4cyl 5M)


Review

I recently purchased this car and am nothing but happy so far. It is my daily commuter and I have nothing bad to say so far. It gets me to work and it runs great. Good on gas and very fun to drive. Anything beats my old Crown Vic on gas, but this one is great. This is no race car but it gets out of its own way very well.


Favorite Features

Gas mileage. The radio shows the stations name, and the song and artist. Very nifty feature and I don't have to get home to see the playlist on the stations site.


Suggested Improvements

The interior plastic is a little cheap feeling but I am sure it will hold up fine for a daily commuter.

2007 Chevrolet Cobalt Coupe LS 2dr Coupe (2.2L 4cyl 5M)


Review

I bought my new red Cobalt LS 5-speed 2-dr coupe about 3 weeks ago. This is my first new GM vehicle, and I am very pleased with it so far. It is comfortable and fairly quiet, and has a very nice interior layout. The EPA rates it at 25/34 mpg city/hwy, but I got 33.6 mpg on my first tank, and 35.9 mpg on the second. My commute is 20 miles each way, mostly Interstate highways, but including weekends I expect that it is about 25% local/75% highway driving. I am driving efficiently, but I still keep up with traffic on I95 (70-75 mph). I use the A/C as necessary. It isn't as powerful as my 86 Mustang GT, but is still quite fun. I am very pleased with my purchase.


Favorite Features

Body style of the 2-dr, fuel economy, A/C, price with rebates and dealer discount.


Suggested Improvements

Standard side airbags would be nice.

2007 Chevrolet Cobalt Coupe LT 2dr Coupe (2.2L 4cyl 5M)


Review

I bought this about a month ago and have around 1150 miles. Car drives smooth with little outside noise. Very quiet engine! Electric power steering seems to working well with no problems. The interior is nice, however a bit nicer door panels couldn't hurt. Sunroof is quiet and a pleasant option to have. Seating in the front is very comfortable. Driver's side lumbar support is a nice feature, however it doesn't really make a huge difference. Instrument gauges are cleanly arranged, and the stock stereo is very nice! I love the features, and the XM that came with it! I have the 16" tires (instead of the stock 15") and I think it gives it a cleaner beefier look. Gas mileage is best at 65 mph.


Favorite Features

Remote start/keyless entry, XM radio, 16" tires, sunroof, cruise control, power locks/windows, overall look of the car, huge trunk space, split folding rear seats, driver's information center (best feature!), stereo w/iPod hookup (no more carrying CDs!!), 2 rear view mirror lights.


Suggested Improvements

Make side impact airbags stock/mandatory on all models! A bit nicer interior door panels, interior door handles are too far forward (move back a tad), trunk opening could be larger, gas mileage good but a bit below what was stated by GM. High back end - caution when backing up.

Review

This car was my first purchase. I absolutely love how much room you have in the back and front seats, when compared to other similar sized cars. Also has great trunk room for storage or traveling. My Cobalt also has excellent gas mileage. It only takes $30 to fill up my tank, and lasts me for two weeks of going to school and work. I've noticed that it also has great quick acceleration that comes in handy when on the interstate. I'm definitely satisfied with my Cobalt.


Favorite Features

I love the digital displays of trip miles, coolant, average speed, and more. Easy to clean fabric on the seats and floors, radio features, and more. The sound system definitely attracts attention.


Suggested Improvements

Dont give people plastic rims on a brand new car. Possibly an in-glass or electric antenna. And automatic doors and windows- it's a 2007. Not 1987.

2007 Chevrolet Cobalt Coupe SS 2dr Coupe (2.4L 4cyl 5M)


Review

I ordered this car after combing through the entire STL region looking for a blue 2.4 ss with sunroof and airbags. Car came and was surprided to find xm was standard. I really didnt care for it but now after listening i cant live w/o it! Also FM and AM reception with antenna is poor. Gas mileage is tricky. In order to get 34 mpg you have to drive like 55 mph on the highway. At 65mph I'm already at 2.5 K in 5th gear, could definitely use another gear for more gas saving. Overall I average 29mpg with 70/30 highway/city driving. Handling is 'sport' like, but it was easily be pushed over it's limits with body roll. Ride quality is very nice however, very smooth. I'm looking forward to modding it


Favorite Features

XM standard! Steering mounted audio/cruse controls- just cool stuff. Digital display- trip a,b, mpg, coolant temp. Round tail lights- pretty much the best part of the coupe. 17" chrome wheels- shinny as sin! Exhaust note- shares same exhaust as full breed s/c


Suggested Improvements

Telescoping steering wheel. I keep finding the wheel to be awkwardly far. Better front seats, the Cobalt's weekest point, my skinny frame slides around on the 'bucket less' seats. 'In glass' antenna- FM/AM reception is poor. Wider tires to protect chrome rims. 6 speed tranny for better highway mileage.

2007 Chevrolet Cobalt Coupe LS 2dr Coupe (2.2L 4cyl 5M)


Review

I bought this car brand new. The first week it was fine. But within the second and third week of driving, strange noises started coming from the front engine area - these weird ratting sounds that would come and go. And after 3 weeks, a horribly loud noise suddenly started clicking. It sounded like it was coming from the right front tire. So I had to take it back to the dealership to get fixed. The brakes also make a strained sound, and they aren't paticularly as sharp as I'd like them to be. The clanking sound is unnerving and extremley annoying. Now I have to go out of my way to get it fixed. This is inconvienent and not fair - I've only owned for less than a month!


Favorite Features

Roomy interior (not in the back though), great steering, good on corners and tight turns. OK fuel economy.


Suggested Improvements

Better brakes, and the rear view window is dangerously hard to see out of, so it makes backing up almost impossibe. Tires get low easily.

2007 Chevrolet Cobalt Coupe SS 2dr Coupe (2.4L 4cyl 5M)


Review

This car is very well rouded. It has performance, handling, style, fuel economy and isn't too expensive; $19,500 brand new w/all but 6 disc changer Power is solid up to 3500 rpm and then she just screams all the way up to redline at 6500 rpm with an auto trans The power is exhilarating. Handling is absoltutely superb while maintaining a pleasant ride (even my wife doesn't complain). Fuel economy is good considering the power (175 HP). I usually get about 26 miles per gallon with a pretty even split of city and highway driving(and my pedal to the floor). I think this car is the total package. I test drove a few other competitors with comparable economy and the Cobalt SS was the obvious choice


Favorite Features

Awesome power, handling and ride quality, sexy appearance, audio controls on steering wheel, comfy seats, subwoofer, all the people I catch eyeballing my car.


Suggested Improvements

Trunk opening could be bigger (inside of trunk is quite spacious though). Add a six speed transmission
