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


Review

I'm the one whose dad replaced a totaled stick Prizm with a Cobalt. His hasn't had transmission problems, but CR says 08 Cobalts are prone to minor transmission problems. The only issues Colleen's (he's a car namer) had are vent valve replacement, maintenance items, like steering components (steering arms, intermediate shaft) and a broken belt and currently exhaust problems and an engine light. Something's dangling and he said it's an exhaust thing and the engine light's steady. Other than being buzzy, the car runs and drives good. She has over 145,000 miles now and is a winter rat, unless the engine light's more expensive than he wants to fix. Her sheet metal's rusty, holes in the rocker panels and a dangling brake cable due the rust holes.

Review

This car is great if you are a young teen getting on to the road for the first time. Reliable and smooth drive, but when they say this car headlights are the worst about this car THEY MEAN IT!!!!! Old headlights new headlights it doesn’t matter this cars headlights are the worst thing to ever happen to a car. Which just so happens to be the most important thing of a car! I’ve only had it for two years and the headlights always seem to break right around expection time. I put brand new headlights in fresh off the box with good reviews and it still breaks. This car is a great day time car but don’t think you can ride this car at night.

I have had to replace fuel lines and a fuel pump since getting this vehicle only 6 months ago. It is also terrible on gas.

this engine is known for timing chain breakage, replace it early to save yourself a ton of headache and extra cost
