This car with the XFE 2.2L engine over achieves the 36 mpg with the 5 speed manual transmission. Actually getting 40+ mpg. Comfort, features, price structure, warranty, and quality compare at or above the cars in its class. I test drove the Focus and Accent the same week I bought the Cobalt. I haven't bought a GM product since 1982, and was pleasently shocked by the product I eventually bought.
Slick 5 speed shifter, number of features in basic model, information center, accleration and road manners.
Have manual door locks automaically release when doors are opened from the inside.
