I just purchased this car for a more fuel efficient vehicle (had a ford van). Gas mileage is the best! I filled up the tank for under $40 @ $3.51 a gallon. I travel for work usually racking up between 100-200 miles a day. This car is good for a short or long comute. It is comfortable and relatively quiet for the price tag. It performs pretty good for a 4 cylinder. 4 cylinders are not race cars, however, they do move when needed!!! Brake system is great. Stereo works goods. Love being able to see my oil levels, coolant temp, and tire pressure. One thing I am having an issue with is the right front tire sensor keeps zeroing out...not sure why. Both of my moms Chevys do the same thing...same tire!! Maybe it is a Chevy thing? All and all this is a great car for a great price!
Bought a Chevy Cobalt to commute back and forth to work. Needed something that was good on gas at a reasonable price. Really happy with the MPG. Getting 34 mpg compared to my truck that gets 11 mpg so I am saving about $400 a month on gas alone. Car rides good and handles better than I thought it would. Plenty of leg room for me and I'm 6ft3. Trunk has plenty of room. A/C cools good and the heat works well. Check oil every week and hasn't burnt an ounce of oil and with 2000 miles on the oil its still clean. Only issue I have are, a/c-heat fan has a squeak to it that was annoying until I got use to it. Have to get use to the recirculate button when having the air coming from the vents. When fan is off air still circulates through the vents unless the recirculate button is on. Thought I had a loose shock when hearing a noise when I hit a bump, but found out to be the hub caps. Might look for some aftermarket rims as the hub caps are brittle looking and vibrates. Had to get use to the auto volume on the radio but love the feature now. People complain about the leg room in the back seat, but I don't have to sit back there so it's not an issue with me. No voltage gauge on the dash or info center. Overall I am very pleased with the Cobalt. Awesome mpgs, has alittle pep to it for a 4 cylinder, nice looking body style, good sounding radio, rides good, and a good bang for the buck. The only option I wish I had was a sunroof.
My 2005 Chevy Cobalt is OK. I traded in my V6 Grand Am thinking I would save gas but that hasn�t been the case. The Colbot I bought was the LS V4 model and it has been a gas guzzler. Over all the car gets my kids and I from point A to point B and it's better than the car I use to have.
