2006 Chevrolet Cobalt Coupe LS 2dr Coupe (2.2L 4cyl 5M)


Review

I have had this car for 5 months now and love it. It is very sporty, and stylish. It moves pretty quick, and gets great gas mileage. It has a pretty good sound system, for a factory setup. I like the idea of the driver information center, which is easy to use. I haven't had any problems so far. It has plenty of legroom even for us tall people. My sister has an '05 Cavalier, and it has absolutly no legroom at all. It is a major improvement over the Cavalier, and better looking too. I would recommend this car to anyone, looking for a sporty car that's good on gas.


Best Features

Great acceleration, good sound system, great gas mileage. Plenty of legroom for compact coupe. Driver Information Center. Great looks.


Worst Features

Standard power windows and locks, and keyless entry would be nice. Other than that, everything else is great.

Take the plastic off that covers the engine because I want to get some more power out of that four banger

2006 Chevrolet Cobalt Coupe LT 2dr Coupe (2.2L 4cyl 5M)


Review

I have had this car for one year and in the last month I have had to take it to the dealership 5 times. Each time the dealership is unable to find what the problem is. The problems range from shifter column malfunction, stalling, poor gas mileage, sluggish to drive, broken CD player, needed a new heating and cooling system, key gets stuck in the ignition, car wont shift from park to drive, foul odor from vents when heat or vents are used.

2006 Chevrolet Cobalt Coupe LS 2dr Coupe (2.2L 4cyl 5M)


Review

We have put about 5500 miles on it now and we are pleased with it's gas mileage, 30 mpg average, and we like the look of the car. It is reasonably comfortable, although being a small car, it can get uncomfortable on those long trips. The ride is average and the handling is above average for the class. Now for the bad news. It's cheap. I'm not just talking about price either. The sheetmetal on the doors is very thin. Don't lean too hard on them or you'll be going to the body shop. Also the interior has a tendency to fall apart. Nothing has broken or flaked off on ours yet, but I have seen several Cobalts with interiors that are falling apart at 30,000 miles. I'm worried.


Best Features

Handles well. Stylish. Fantastic gas mileage


Worst Features

Very thin sheetmetal (exterior). Flimsy materials used in the interior

Review

The Cobalt beats its competitors in nearly every way, except fuel economy, which still isn't bad at all. The engine is incredibly smooth, quiet, and powerful. Extremely high sophistication for its class. Automatic tranny is superb, as per usual for GM. Interior design and construction are greatly improved for Chevy and is generally excellent, though materials could be nicer. Handling is about average but the ride is amazing. Great room for a coupe, comfortable seats, a ridiculously large list of standard features, and great availability and affordabilty of optional features rounds out an excellent package. Have owned this car for half a year with no problems and on a college budget. Must buy


Best Features

Wonderful engine/transmission. Driver information center, huge trunk, great interior. Nice styling. Highly affordable. Sophisticated for class. Great option packages easily available. Nice ride, decent handling. Overall value in class


Worst Features

Fuel economy at the lower end of class. VVT on 2.2L engine would help greatly. Trunk lid is small. Would be greatly improved as a liftback, a la Scion tC and 4th gen Camaro. Use of better interior materials. Why no three spoke steering wheel? Even the Corolla has one. No aux. input jack until '07
