2005 Chevrolet Cobalt SS Supercharged 2dr Coupe (2.0L 4cyl S/C 5M)


Review

I bought a 2005 Chevy Cobalt SS supercharged and so far I think it is a good car. I have fun driving it. There is a lot of power up dates that you can buy for them, and it gets better gas mileage than my last car. More power than Cooper


Best Features

Supercharger, stereo system, air, interior, gas mlieage, power


Worst Features

More power. Anything can have more power

2005 Chevrolet Cobalt LT 4dr Sedan (2.2L 4cyl 4A)


Review

Unfortunately, I recently found out that the Chevy Cobalt utilizes an electric power steering system as opposed to a hydraulic system found on all other cars. The electric steering system has a high failure rate and the average cost for repair is $2k. I am one of those unfortunate owners and will have to sell my car because of this issue. No recall notices by GM and I don't anticipate one. After avoiding American cars for 20 years, I made the mistake of re-entering the GM/Chevy market and I'm sorry I did so. Because of this, I plan on not ever purchasing another GM vehicle. Very sad.


Worst Features

Wind noise from windows; key becomes stuck in ignition; multiple radio failure; brake rotors and drums rusted in less that 1,000 miles.

2005 Chevrolet Cobalt SS Supercharged 2dr Coupe (2.0L 4cyl S/C 5M)


Review

This car I ordered and waited 6 months for it, it didn't disappoint. The power the feel best bang for your buck. However it is built kind of like a home made rocket ship, amazing performance, questionable quality. Build quality should go negative for this car


Best Features

Supercharger, price, stage kits


Worst Features

Get rid of the giant whale tail spoiler that makes it so you can't see out the back window. Upgrade the quality. And they wonder why GM is in trouble, this thing is as well build as a Lada. Only buy this car if it comes with a bumper to bumper warranty, you will need it

2005 Chevrolet Cobalt 4dr Sedan (2.2L 4cyl 5M)


Review

Bought this car because I read a lot of positive reviews on it. Then the test drive came and I loved it. I used to drive a 1995 Jeep Cherokee Laredo but I was a victim in a car crash and it was taken away from me. So safety was my key concern and let me tell you, I feel safe in this car!


Best Features

The windshield wipers are great! The driver seat height is cool also, you pump your chair up or down. Also that fast that you can see all the gas, coolant and oil specs with a push of a button.


Worst Features

The back seats are kind of thin, I would make them a little more meaty for comfort.

2005 Chevrolet Cobalt 4dr Sedan (2.2L 4cyl 5M)


Review

Bought this car used <10000 miles, now have 54000, aside from tires and oil changes no repairs needed. Have had many people of other makes ride in it all compliment the ride. Great gas mileage, have gotten up to 37 highway on extended trips, mostly around 32 daily.


Worst Features

Different material for seating that dosen't show spots, and offer windows and locks standard like some other cars for the same price.
