2005 Chevrolet Cobalt LS 2dr Coupe (2.2L 4cyl 5M)


This is my wife's car and she puts less then your average yearly mileage on the car. When she first bought the car it was a wonderful. In fact I actually found myself sneaking it time to time for little trips to the store. In terms of reliability. Well that's the sour point of this car. This is a list of the items that have been fixed since the car was new. Throttle body malfunctioned, Sunroof has broke and come off track twice, Every button in the interior has broke at least once. Have replaced the sunroof bezel 4 times. Electrical short in trunk that killed the electrical system. Final thoughts: Fun to drive, good gas mileage, horrible reliability. Will trade for a Honda Civic.

Best Features

Overall fun factor. It's like driving a go-cart. with out the reliability of a lawnmower engine.

Worst Features

GM overall has made improvements on reliability for all of its line up, but they are still not even in the same league as Honda, Subaru, or Toyota.
