My Cobalt is an 2008 LS Coupe with a 5 speed. It is the base model that lists at $14,330 and I bought it new for $9989. It is a second car that I use just to get back and forth to work. It is very economical & fairly comfortable. It is quieter than I expected and the stereo sounds nice with the XM radio. Although there is a lot of plastic in the interior, the fit and finish is very good. Overall it is an excellent car.
Stereo system is quite nice for such an inexpesive car. Fuel economy is good. The digital dash display with fuel mileage, tire pressures, etc. is surprising for the price.
