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


I'm generally pleased with this new effort from Chevy. Definitely like the looks and feel. Surpised and disappointed by poor city driving mileage. Has plenty of pep and good mileage on the open road. This car needlessly weighs about 200 to 300 lbs more than its Hyundai, Corolla and Civic competitors so additional HP is wasted in my opinion. Braking required surprising effort. Interior is well laid out but somewhat plastic looking. Despite above comments, was actually overall quite pleased!

Best Features

Good looking exterior. Sufficiently peppy engine.

Worst Features

Reduce curb weight by 200lbs! Run more lean in city driving conditions. More responsive braking. add deeper gutters around windows so rain water doesnt come into car from roof when you are turning!
