2007 Chevrolet Cobalt SS 2dr Coupe (2.4L 4cyl 5M)


Review

I love my Cobalt, but I am worried about it's reliability. My visor broke after I had the car about a year. I have not even had the car 2 years and the top part of my shifter knob just broke off along with the plugs for the chargers no longer working. Also, the emergency break went out. Great that it's still under warranty, but what am I going to do after that?


Best Features

leather seats, heated seats, cute car, great manual shifting


Worst Features

bigger opening for trunk, stop being cheap on the little parts

2007 Chevrolet Cobalt LS 4dr Sedan (2.2L 4cyl 5M)


Review

Not sure where to start...had my Cobalt for less than a month when I heard a horrible rattling noise. Took it to the dealership only to find that the windshield had been installed upside down and had to be replaced. Got the car out of the shop. Drove it for two weeks and started hearing a horrible noise in the front end. Two compressors later, and I still hear a 'bug zapper' like sound when I run the heat or the air. Dealership swears that they can't hear it, but everyone else who has ever been in the car has commented on it. The car drives okay, but honestly, has been in the shop way to often for a brand new vehicle. As the owner of both an 07 Cobalt and an 07 Malibu LS, I'm unhappy w/GM!


Best Features

Body and upholstery are nice. Looks sporty even for a 4 door.


Worst Features

Fix the issue with the heater/AC noise! Everyone I know who has a Cobalt has this problem!! Quality control needs to be looked into. The upside down installation of the windshield could have been dangerous for me and my kids!

2007 Chevrolet Cobalt LT 4dr Sedan (2.2L 4cyl 5M)


Review

Before I had a 2001 Chevy Cavalier, that had reached 225,000 miles. I thought that the Cobalt would be comparable to the Cavalier boy was I wrong. I love the style of the car very cute inside and out. The features are amazing XM, MP3 jack, remote start, but the quality leaves much to be desired. I have had to fix so much on it in two years broken tail light after two weeks of ownership, squeaky sunroof, loose seat fabric, breaks and rotors replaced(only after 15,000 mi),left control arm, radio buttons stopped working, and BOTH remotes to my car are broken.


Best Features

I love the look of the car I still think it is incredibly cute. I love all the available features and it drives well. It is a wonderful gas saver I average 29 mpg.


Worst Features

Quality improvement! Is my only suggestion. I feel that it has had way too much wrong with it to only be 2 years old, it has been in the shop far more than the cavalier ever was. I baby my car and treat it like a god and yet it continues to break.

2007 Chevrolet Cobalt LS 4dr Sedan (2.2L 4cyl 5M)


Review

This is an update from my 9/13/07 post. This is a great little car. Fuel economy is 34 to 36 on my mostly highway commute at about 60 mph. Got 40 mpg on trip once. Seats are still comfortable. Shifting is not as crisp as when new. Never been back to dealer for any warranty service. Oil change is super easy with the front cartridge filter and oversize filler cap. Tires will need to be replaced before next winter.


Best Features

Size, fuel economy, great AC and heat, auto lights, good radio, good power. Price: I only paid 10.5K and if gas goes up again this summer as usual it will be worth almost what I paid. Why buy hybrid???


Worst Features

rear disk brakes, alloy wheels, cruise, PDL, PW, should be std even on base models.

Like the radio jack for ipod. Nice features for money too. Styling is good and the seats are comfortable


Worst Features

Have keyless entry standard and spoiler standard
