2008 Chevrolet Cobalt Sport 2dr Coupe (2.4L 4cyl 5M)

Review

Traded in a Jeep Liberty that was getting 13mpg, just couldn't handle it. Was also shopping Saturn Astra, but dealer and factory incentives were too good. Sticker price was 23k paid just over 19k out the door. Manual transmission is a joy to drive with short throws and positive engagement. Engine has good power and torque, although not the quickest revving or smoothest sounding one out there. Fuel economy is outstanding! 28.8 mpg first tank, in a 60% city 40% hwy mix. Very quiet on the inside even with sunroof, also the ride is very comfortable even with sport suspension. Handling is sporty and fun. Seats are comfortable and supportive. Good trunk space.

Favorite Features

Excellent balance of power and handling with fuel economy and comfort. 30mpg, good cabin materials and attention to detail, looks more expensive than it really is, supportive seats w/ lumbar adjustment, saftey features (side cutain airbags, antiskid system, etc.,) manual transmission.

Suggested Improvements

Engine lacks smoothness and is slow to rev, more body lean in corners than there should be in a sport model, no telescoping steering wheel and short front seat cushions, so make sure the car fits well for you, back seats (coupe) are a joke, and access to them is tricky, trunk opening too small
