2007 Chevrolet Cobalt LTZ 4dr Sedan (2.2L 4cyl 4A)
Bought used with 30,000. Put on 150,000 miles. We live in Montana and it winters well. Its gone through 3 brake jobs but no other repairs. Mpg on highway mid 30 mpg, less in winter. Not made for gravel roads which we live on. The wheels go out of balance easily with mud and dirt or snow build up. It's not a car for teaching kids to drive as the steering is a little too quick. Trunk is tight to get a cooler in. A small kids bike will go in.
It's amazing in parking lots and great for quick acceleration to get on the freeway.
It comes in orange! Its been very reliable for us. It's a 65 mile trip to town so it's mostly highway miles and does well.
Definitely better brakes. A couple more inches on the trunk door opening would have made life a lot easier for hauling groceries in and out.
At about 150,000 miles the trip computer seemed to lose reliability, showing up to 42 mpg with no changes in driving or anything.
