I am getting 35 MPG and the cabin is quite. Best of all, I got it brand new for $10,000.

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


Review

Wanted a base coupe to replace an 04 Cavalier coupe automatic. Other than looks, not too much has changed. Same basic layout with a few more features. Nice car for way cheap money. End of year pricing and rebates put this less than the competition (Kia- Hyundai- Nissan-Focus). Only drawback - 6 year old design. Looks like a '10 to me. I might buy one more before the Cruze swings into production. (or they move the Cobalt tooling to Mexico)


Best Features

XM- Onstar


Worst Features

Model is dead. Drop the price another two thousand and I'll be right down to buy another.

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


Review

My expectations going in were low. I was just looking for a new car to replace my S10 Pickup my daughter beat up in a couple accidents. Looked for cheap cars, best rebates, something simple. Was pleasantly surprised at the handling, features, fit & finish and performance of the 2009 Cobalt.


Best Features

Performance is great, like that when I step on the gas it picks up and goes fast. No worries on freeway merge. Like the onboard computer monitoring. OnStar in case I need it is nice too.


Worst Features

Move the armrest forward a bit. Too far back for using it as an armrest.

Review

So, one of the most boring faceless cars on the US roads has a hidden heart. its fun to drive, Cheap to own and a good value.I own a 08 Mini, an 08 F150 and find the Manual version of this car nearly as much fun as the Mini and more so than the Ford. BUT drive with care.mine has 29000 miles and is already falling to pieces. its back at the dealers again where they are replacing more of the steering assembly. the chrome has dropped of the interior handle and the door locks are sticking.. ALL IN ALL... its still a good cheap car. the discounts are great.


Best Features

GREAT Value to own....Sporty as a stickshift. roomy and functional. love the information buttons based in the steering wheel.


Worst Features

Design, this car is more boring than a 50yr old black and white movie.... i just cant imagine that someone went to design school and this is what they dreamt of...ITS the automotive design equivalent of a lump of lead. CHEVY..TRY HARDER

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


Review

Car looks and handles alright and mileage is very good. The problem I am having is the exhaust system makes lots of noise when you turn off the car and the pipes cool off. Two dealers have told me this is normal, but this is way to loud and needs to have a fix. Has anyone else had this problem and had a dealer fix it?


Best Features

Good looks and good mileage


Worst Features

Better exhaust setup, better shift lever on automatics, arm rest on front seats
