This is the best car that I have ever owned, and that I truly loved. I have owned new or used cars, but this one is truly the best car ever. The interior is very comfortable and spacious. Very easy to clean, and care for. For a 2007, 68,000 miles, only thing I've had to replace is new tires, and a new battery period. Customer service has always, been on top of things. And has been Johnny on the spot. Always pleasant, and professional, also takes the to explain anything that I do not understand, with patience always. Next year I will buy a new one, 2019.
2007 Chevrolet Cobalt SS Supercharged 2dr Coupe (2.0L 4cyl S/C 5M)
Purchased this car in December of 2017 with 80k. It’s had some problems since, reverse lights don’t work, sunroof doesn’t work, speaker blew out, fan relay is going, steering wheel buttons don’t work for the most part, etc, (mostly interior problems) but the supercharger screams and is very fast for what you pay. Overall not a bad car it’s never broken down on me (knock on wood) but the performance is there.
We brought this car used from a dealer 3 years ago never had a problem with it we wanted to take a nice trip to the keys for 2 day so we decided to go with my girlfriend Chevy cobalt, I have to say I was so impress with the performance of this little car going 80 miles per hour with no problem. I was pushing this car and laughing my girlfriend told me to take it easy on her baby so I respond by saying dont worry Babe Besty doing fine, unfortunately I have to say that my girlfriend got into a car accident couple weeks ago with a pickup truck on her way to work and total Besty, we only had PIP insurance on it. My girlfriend is doing fine, but she's so sad about the car,she wants the same car because of the reliability, we trying to save to get another one.
I bought this car new in May 2007, almost exactly 10 years ago. Besides the recalls, there was little need to do any repairs or take it into the dealer for the first 7 years/80k miles. This car has been extremely reliable even after 128k miles, hitting a deer, and sliding off of a snowy highway into a ditch (I was young and dumb, give me a break). I will admit that I am a DIYer so whenever a problem comes up with my car, and like I said there weren't many the first 7 years, I'm quick to replace any needed parts, so it runs about as well as the day I bought it. There have been no issues with the tranny (dropped pan and replaced fluid at about 100k miles), the brakes lasted me a very long time (replaced front brakes around 90k miles, back drum brakes around 125k miles), and had to do some front end work around 120k miles. It's still a very zippy car with paint that looks fresh, even in the rust belt. The only problem with the car worth noting right now is that the front driver side speaker doesn't work, which also means that I can't hear turn signals and notifications from the vehicle in general, but it's probably just a short that I'll get around to fixing. All in all, if you're looking for a reliable vehicles that will stay on the road if you take care of it, I think a Cobalt is a reasonable way to go.
