2007 Chevrolet Cobalt LTZ 4dr Sedan (2.2L 4cyl 4A)
Bought this car because it was the right price.
6 months after the purchase date, the gearbox had to be taken-apart.
Within a year and a half from the purchase date, a control arm bushing, wheel bearing, and the catalytic converter had to be replaced.
Yesterday, the check engine light came on.
Do yourself a favour and spend a little extra coin from the get-go, because if you buy a Cobalt it'll cost you the same as a Charger or a Crown Vic in the long-run, but all you'll have in the end is a Cobalt.
When it runs.
The interior is a joke.
Everything is made out of the cheapest plastic imaginable.
The passenger side mirror has been in the glove box since breaking off in the first week of ownership.
Also, this car was specifically designed, apparently, to have the most horrendous blind spots as possible.
You either have to lean forward [like, head past the top of the steering wheel] at stop lights to check for pedestrians who may be crossing, or risk hitting them.
