Stylish, but there's a reason it's cheap
By pkbjw on


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


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
