Better than a Cavalier
By sean on
2007 Chevrolet Cobalt SS 2dr Coupe (2.4L 4cyl 5M)
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
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
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.
