2009 Chevrolet Cobalt Coupe LT 2dr Coupe (2.2L 4cyl 5M)


Review

I absolutely love this car! Before this car I had a 2008 Dodge Caliber and I am so happy that i traded it. I recently got in an accident with it and it did not cost me more than 500 bucks to fix it myself! and it still runs awesome just like it did before! The manual transmission in it too makes it so much fun to drive and race others all the time cause im first off the line. Fuel economy is great my tank will last me two weeks and im driving everyday to school and work and its only 45 bucks to fill her up. Wouldnt trade her for anything

2009 Chevrolet Cobalt Coupe LT 2dr Coupe (2.2L 4cyl 5M)


Review

I bought my Cobalt new and have put 56,000 miles on it. I love it! I'm religious about servicing it and have had zero mechanical problems. I get 40 mpg highway easily. For a relatively inexpensive car it handles great and has decent power. I live where it gets cold as hell in the winter and it starts every morning, and it does alright on the snow and ice. There is pretty limited storage space, and the blindspots are pretty significant. Everything seems pretty solid still. Of course there are little rattles here and there, but nothing crazy. Everything has stayed pretty tight and sealed up. The ride on the highway is smooth and fairly quiet. Overall, I think this is an awesome car!


Favorite Features

XM Radio, nice exterior styling, reliable


Suggested Improvements

More interior storage

2009 Chevrolet Cobalt Coupe LT 2dr Coupe (2.2L 4cyl 5M)


Review

Purchased NEW 2009 Garage kept Cobalt LT Black coupe. After only 6 months - clearcoat on aluminum rims bubbling and flaking. Steering wheel/system rattles & thunks over small bumps after about 10K miles (same problem as my '06). Recall "fix" made no difference. I Drive a lot. 64K of today's writing... just noticed a half-dollar sized area of paint bubbling on the roof.... and chrome on the inside passenger door handle that is NEVER used is bubbling. I know I drive a bunch - but these are cosmetic issues GM will not cover after 36K warranty is up. I have 36K in the first 6 months!! Cheap car with cheap plastic parts - and paint issues not isolated to Cobalt. Black is bad on Camaros too.


Favorite Features

Peppy engine. Nice body styling - but horrible paint. Roomy Trunk. Leg room - I am 6'4" and seat is NOT all the way back.


Suggested Improvements

Paint, clearcoat, and chrome plating is awful. Issues with the clunking in the steering have affected 2005 - present models - FIX IT!! Paint on master switch peeling. All interior is cold and plastic. Cheap construction. Will not be purchasing Chevy again.

2009 Chevrolet Cobalt Coupe LT 2dr Coupe (2.2L 4cyl 5M)


Review

LT 2 sport coupe review: sexy car+reliable under the hood+exterior panels were loose+interior steering wheel neck was broken+new leather seats wouldn't move forward+steering ratio limited>tire too big for wheel space, difficulty making U turns or parking+gas mileage not so good for small car


Favorite Features

once I got it fixed--most everything-great for a small person


Suggested Improvements

fix the wheel space/ tire issue so I can make normal turns instead of 3 point turns-Chevy refuses to acknowledge this-stop using cheap plastic clips for the body panels

Review

I was in the market for a new compact gar with Great MPG. When I went to Vegas in 2008 I rented a Toyota Corolla, Then in 2009 I rented a Focus for a Week then My next Trip I rented a Cobalt, Each one I rented for 7 days & I put on close to 1000 miles in the week going to the Grand Canyon and Red Rock Canyons. Even drove through the Dessert. The Toyota is a death trap,the accelerator stuck on me. The Focus (Mexican Built 1.8 engine) is not as fast and struggles to get up. to speed and has noisy acceleration. The Cobalt 2.2 is the fastest 0-100 & Top Speed hands down. I drove it hard & it impressed me with 32 MPG with Auto Trans.Paid about 11K with all Rebates combined & my 4K GM Card Rebate


Favorite Features

The 2009 Chevrolet Cobalt Auto 2dr Coupe is FAST with Great MPG, I got about 30MPG. I've had my Yellow XFE coupe for about 16 months and 25,000 miles on it, the MPG gets better and better. The car is also extremely Fast & Quiet and had low road noise top speed in the Dessert about 125 American made.


Suggested Improvements

Replace cloth seats with better washable material,Make Spare Tire, Ash Tray&Lighter Standard instead of a option.Free XM is great for a year but I went through a circle jerk to Renew you have to waist like 6 hours of time with overseas call centers who speak like clones with marbles in their mouths
