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


Review

It's quieter than my 07 Honda Civic. So far no problems. I have 8000 miles on it. Gas mileage on the highway is very good. I can maintain 40 mpg on a relative lt flat highway at 60 mph. I do not like the spare tire. There is none. Chevy now provides an air compressor with a bottle of stop leak attached to the compressor. What happens if I get a flat when it's 20 degrees outside? What happens if I get a blowout? I'm going to start calling junk yards for a real spare tire. It will fit in the spare tire wheel well. So why not just provide a real spare and a jack?


Best Features

Comfortable. Handles relatively well.


Worst Features

A REAL SPARE TIRE!!! Heated side mirrors that collapse.

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


Review

Love this car. I purchased the LT package with all the bells and whistles. The pioneer stereo is more than adequate. It sounds as good if not better than some Bose systems Ive heard. Love the XM radio. Love the Onstar (Incase of a serious accident)- Has great comfortable leather seats with the 2-stage heat option. (VERY NICE) and airbags everywhere. I got the 17" Chrome style wheels with the Pirelli tires. This car sticks and corners SWEET!!! And I have owned 5 Corvettes!!!! You can take a 40mph curve at 70 and it will rail right around. Awesome!!!Traded a 07 Civic EX and yes the dash was prettier and may last a bit longer but I hands down LOVE the Cobalt much much better. Smooth/Quiet/Awesome


Best Features

Love the ONstar & the remote start & the XM Pioneer stereo system ROCKS OUT!! Also like the MPG (Averaging 26.8 since I bought it 5/09) Like the fog lamps and the 2 stage heated seats- like the TPMS monitoring system and all the info you can get about the cars operation at the push of a button


Worst Features

NONE!

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


Review

I bought my Cobalt 38 days ago. I only have 803 miles on the car. I get 23.3 MPG... seems low but I work 2 miles from home and don't do any highway driving. Work, home and the grocery store is the extent of where I take my car.One tank of gas lasts me 2 weeks. I took my cobalt on the highway one time and got 40 MPG so I know I don't get as good millage because I drive such short trips. I am very happy with my purchase. I spent 15,000. My only complaint is when the A/C is on, my dash vibrates a little when I am driving slow in a parking lot or backing out of a driveway or sitting at a light! Other than that its great. This is my first new car and I would recommend a Cobalt to anyone!


Best Features

Fun to drive, good gas millage,stylish look. Great for highway drivers


Worst Features

Vibrating Dash mentioned above and the head rest is tilted down in an awkward position.

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


Review

I've had my Yellow XFE coupe for about 4 months and 10,000 miles. I commute about 120 miles per day and average 38.5 and 39.1 MPG...you have to love that! The car is very comfortable and has great pickup when it's time to hit the on ramps. I was about to buy a civic, but saved myself 6 grand and get better mileage. I expect it will be a great car for years.

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


Review

I bought new in early '09, had a '01 Malibu w/ over 260k mi. Wanted the XFE, 1LT package. It took a bit to find car. after delivery, I found it comfortable, roomy for that size of car, great mileage, 36 has been my low, 40.9 has been high. I drive 150 a day, commuting to work. gas usage went from 5 gal a day to 3.2. started with Mobil 1 a 5k mi. went 11.2k to second oil change. I drive at 60 - 65mph, keep foot off the floor, expect over 200k and not a lot of cost. good car! also set up car for towing behind motorhome. Great Towed


Best Features

Enjoy higher mileage, XM radio, quiet ride, good size trunk, small opening but I can load through side door, with back seats down, I had three 15" trailer tires plus "stuff" in trunk area.


Worst Features

I'd like map lights under rear view mirror, a better view through the rear window, an XFE w/ auto trany, all in all, well satisfied
