2005 Chevrolet Cobalt LS 2dr Coupe (2.2L 4cyl 5M)
I bought my 2005 Cobalt 2 door in March 2011. It had 54,000 miles on it, and it ran like a brand new car. It has all the options, except a sunroof. My son drove it for his summer job, and the engine did fail, but it was fixed through the extended service contract I purchased. Only paid the $100 deductable, and a new engine was installed. Now it runs even better than before! It still looks like a new car, not one spot of rust at 8 years old. I'm now driving the car, and I have a 2010 model, cause I really like this style of car. They both run beautiful, and I have all the maintainence done as the manufacturer recommends.
I like the sporty look of the 2 door coup, I have the rear spoiler, and it makes the car look so cool.
The interior did have some paint chipping on the plastic parts, but my son took care of that, by painting them, and now it looks awesome!
2005 Chevrolet Cobalt 4dr Sedan (2.2L 4cyl 5M)
Just bought this car last month and I'm pleased so far. The car is very fun to drive and it's a great value. Styling is spot-on. My list of gripes is short. Any 2005 model car should come with standard power locks and windows and a headphone jack. No standard OnStar or center armrest. The storage bin is too small. However, most of these complaints are superficial. Overall, this is a great car that I would recommend to anyone looking for an American compact between $5,000 and $10,000. Just try to stay away from a base model car.
Styling, quality, and value. A lot of chrome accents around the gauges, shift knob, and door handles. A lot of hard plastic that actually feels of high quality. Many two-tone accents around the cabin. Everything is screwed together well. Overall it looks and feels like a premium sedan, not a cheap compact.
More standard features on the base models. A less buzzy sounding fan.
2005 Chevrolet Cobalt 4dr Sedan (2.2L 4cyl 5M)
I have to agree with Jason2012, I think the real problem you all are experiencing is operator error. My 05 Cobalt Coupe rides, handles, preforms and is more reliable than a lot of new cars my friends own. I have an extremely bad back and long trips in the car never irritate it, I find the seats very comfy. The suspension is unreal, it has nearly 150,000km on it and still runs like new. Never had any problems with it, but I always maintain it. I worked at a GM Dealer for quite a while and these cars don't often have problems. They have a bulletproof drivetrain. You could have this car for 300 000 km + if you maintain it. I just wish I had and upgraded model with more options than base.
The 5 speed manual is peppy and makes this a very fun car to drive. Love the exterior and interior styling. Very comfortable to drive, excellent fuel economy. I thought the back seats would be uncomfortable or very small, and they appear quite small, but don't find them too crammed or uncomfortable. Love the tons of truck space too.
Love this car, I just wish I had an upgraded model so I have more options rather than basic manual windows etc. The only thing I'm not a fan of is the cupholders placed directly below the heater controls on the dash. It is hard to get to the controls if you have a drink in the way.
2005 Chevrolet Cobalt SS Supercharged 2dr Coupe (2.0L 4cyl S/C 5M)
I dont know what the hell you people are talking about, i guess u dont know how to take care of a car. MY COBALT was bought in july 2005, only issue i ever had with it was my 2 gear, gearbox, BECAUSE i was petal to the metal, of course it was under warranty at the time and was fix beautiful. another thing, nothing big was the molding around the sunroof button, came off when racing a crxgsr turbo LOL, was fix and never came off. Thats About it RIGHT NOW i got 140k miles on it and it runs PerfecT! I sugguest u people learn how to warm up ur car and maintain it well. sounds to me u are a bunch of retards. BTW this is GM expect Speed not Need lmao. GREAT car its Paid Off And WIll be kept!!
LOVE the power it came with, When i first came out in the road everyone wanna a piece of the Cobalt. You will get Many looks, especially if u can hook up the car like i did. THe insdie two tune leather is AWESUME, my is rally yellow so inside i had Blk N Yellow hah. The spoiler is awesume as well, comes with a boost gauge, nice body style
Spoiler view not as great, its GM, they need to improve in the interior dept but they did a good job in this car.
2005 Chevrolet Cobalt LT 4dr Sedan (2.2L 4cyl 4A)
Just purchased this from ailing grandma. I've driven and owned both American and foreign cars. Long and short of it, a '99 Ford Focus with 190Kmiles and a broken head gasket drives better than the cobalt with less than 16K miles on it. The car's braking is unresponsive and frighteningly unsafe on the interstate and city. The power steering is more of a suggestion than an actual option. Terrible understeer. Most days I can only attempt to "guide" it rather than steer it. It's a small cramped vehicle and I'm 5'5 150lbs, no features, uncomfortable, unsafe to drive, and no Anti-Lock Breaks? What is this? The 1980's? Seems like ABS should be a standard safety feature as of 2005.
This car has no features to favorite. Has uncomfortable seats, cramped head room, and I'm only 5'5, peddles too close together. It's easy to hit the break instead of gas, unsafe blind spots. The Cobalt's power steering was recalled. I had this fixed on grandma's car and it never drives a straight line. I'm always in a state of having to overcompensate for it. Breaking is the worst I've seen. My heavy 84' Cadillac Deville breaked similarly to this. This car, over 45mph, feels like it is hydraplaning. Worst gas mileage for the size of the car. My 99' Acura TL which requires premium costs less to operate. This car gets worse gas mileage than the new Ford F-150s.
I suggest that nothing like this vehicle ever be manufactured again. Ford was one of the only American car companies who not only didn't take a bail out but has also stepped up their engineering, suspension, fuel economy. If you want a better value for the money and you like American, Ford is the leader. I'm going to trade this lemon in and buy an Acura/Honda/Nissan/Infiniti. People like foreign cars for good reason. Pay a little more $ and you get a more reliable, safe, comfortable, and better driving car that will have good resale value. The best cars I've owned were Japanese or Ford.
