2008 Chevrolet Cobalt LS 4dr Sedan (2.2L 4cyl 5M)


My Cobalt LS sedan has 4 speed automatic. Pickup is smooth. The whole car is so quiet inside it's scary. Some change from my '86 Aries. The bucket seats are very firm, but supportive - great for my back. The ride is much stiffer than that of the Aries, but the Cobalt takes curves much better. I don't like not being able to tell where the front end of the car is, so there's some tension getting into tight places. Because of the rear headrests, visibility when backing up is a bit of a chore. The power steering is nice, with enough feel to it, but because the steering wheel is small, it takes more cranking when parking. Heavy city driving gives 18mpg, same as the Aries. I hope this improves.

Best Features

I love the quiet ride. Stop & go traffic is no longer a chore.

Worst Features

Make the steering quicker at low speed. Improve visibility for backing up. Do something about the front windshield pillar. It feels as if it's growing out of my left eye.
