I don't think I would buy this car again

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


One of the reasons I bought this car is because of the great rebates, but I don't think it's in the same class as an $18,000 Honda or Toyota. I think this may have been a great marketing plan by GM. There are definite engineering flaws with this vehicle, such as the cup holders being too close to the heating controls. The back glass in the back doors doesn't fit securely, allowing a wind noise. The back window has a channel on top that will be a problem with water build up. Rust on the screws that hold the gas filling tube. I have had my car into the dealership 6 times this month for service and the problem of wind noise still exists. My last mileage figure was 20.5mpg I wonder if the rebate will ever go away

Best Features

It does have a great sound system.

Worst Features

The trunk access is extremely small. Move the windshield posts back to remove the blind spots. Correct the ear piercing noise when only one back window is put down. Reduce the engine noise. More storage space in the front of the car. Improve the quality of the edges on the cheap plastic interior
