Never Buy This Car

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


I purchased the car in 2008. Been down hill since day 1. W/in the 1st week, the rear passenger window seal was bad, several fuses had to be replaced, the key got stuck in the ignition and the entire steering column was replaced bc it wouldn't lock into gear. Still does it. The glove box rattles, the instrument panel lights don't come on when the headlamps are on. The clock constantly resets itself to 12:00. The trunk now rattles. The plastic interior scratches way too easily. I know it's not a Lexus, but GM could have done a better job. Will never buy GM again. All I can say is you'll defiantly be using that warranty! Be careful!

Best Features

The ride is nice. It looks good, when the paint doesn't chip off. Comfortable for long rides. Gas mileage is good- 50 mile commute each day. Average sound system.

Worst Features

Better quality parts, period. We're all having trouble these days & the last thing we need is to invest more money into something that was so poorly built. Make more things standard, like windows and locks. It's 2009!
