I bought a 2009 Cobalt LT sedan two weeks ago. It is beautiful Sport Red Tint with Grey interior. After putting just 149 miles on it, the electric steering started making a death wail each time I turned a corner. The car now sits at the dealership. When they hooked up the diagnostic computer to it, TWENTY possible error codes came back. Fortunately, my salesman is letting me select another car, which is a shame, because I really liked that one. The 2009 rental Cobalt I am in drives perfectly with 31,000 miles on it. Maybe I just lucked out in getting the lemon?
Love the trip computer, XM radio and larger seats of the LT package. Was getting fairly decent mileage, however, after just 5 days and 149 miles, it is hard to build a case for.
Dump the electric steering, some woodgrain trim on the dash would be nice.
