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


At first the car was cool, however the problems began within 2 months. It's too small. The interior plastic paint chips. Factory (Perelli) tires are awfull in the winter. Rear light panel shorted out completely after two times in the shop to replace all back lights. The front end pulls to the left. Had the right passenger side axle and cv joint and boot replaced and it still still pulls to the left. The rental cars are better than my car. The wind blows you across the freeway. There's no leg room for your passengers, you feel like clowns. Tends to guzzle gas for a small car. It needs bigger rear windows (too much of a blind side) The suspension stinks. A poorly made car.

Best Features

MP3, Pioneer 7 speaker and a 10'woofer. Heated leather seats. Dash lights are sporty. Rims. Large trunk space,but a small opening. Message center for the CD player. Color of the vehicle. The car is pretty zippy which is cool, however, the handling could be better.

Worst Features

Bigger trunk opening. Less plastic interior parts and needs better quality paint on the interior parts so they wont chip. Make the car a little bigger in the inside. Why is the battery in the trunk? Stop throwing the cars together, build them with better quality parts.
