Surprising Quality and Fun!

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


I've never owned a GM car before and I bought this car because 'the price was right' after my GM card earnings. After 2 weeks, I am impressed with interior design and how quiet the car is. Manual shifting and acceleration are quick and smooth. Gas mileage is good, 30+ in mixed driving, but GM needs to offer higher mileage vehicles to compete with Japanese manufacturers. Overall, a very good car at a competetitive price. I would like more options to be made available, not necessarily packaged.

Best Features

Driver information center, with fuel economy, outside temp, etc. Exterior styling, in the laser blue metallic, attracts attention!

Worst Features

Music system sound quality is not balanced. Visibility problems: Rear spoiler blocks some of your rear view. Small back window & headrest almost entirely block my left sideview when I look over my shoulder to change lanes. Curved hatch glass reflects light, affecting visibility.
