I recently got in an accident with it and it did not cost me more than 500 bucks to fix it myself! In frontal government crash tests, both Cobalt body styles received four out of five stars for driver protection and a perfect five stars for passenger protection. So tight, in fact, that there are no rubber trim gaskets around Cobalt's compound complex headlamps. The recall began on April 18, 2014. You can't go wrong with buying a turbocharged Cobalt. As an alternative to cars like the Honda Civic and Hyundai Elantra, the Cobalt's value is hard to beat. The coupe has the same trunk volume but an even smaller trunk opening, making it difficult to stow a thick suitcase.
People not to purchase this car because it had a bad reputation. It's good that it's small; fewer people, fewer distractions while I'm driving. Economy is further enhanced by new 15-inch low rolling resistance tires, and by a longer-legged 3. This is to make you aware that some 2009 Chevrolet Cobalt may have a condition where the plastic supply or return port on the fuel pump cracks and leaks fuel or fuel vapors. The engine and tranny are strong, though. After that it was one thing after another, little creaks and noises that drove me crazy, sunroof rattling, engine breaking, shimmy at high speeds. The heating, ventilation and defroster system worked quickly and intuitively.
I hit a tree head on doing about 45 mph and didn't get a scratch on me. Chevrolet put considerable effort into special door seals, sandwich steel panels, thick carpets and pads, noise blockers and noise absorbers throughout the front, middle and rear of the car. Front passengers enjoy good head, leg and elbow space, but rear-seat passengers must accept a somewhat confined space and an average-size person may have trouble getting in and out of the rear of the coupe. Even better were the optional leather-trimmed seats, which come with electric heat. Other than the lack of a light for the rear seat occupants and some of the cheap plastics that have broken off in the interior, there is nothing I would change about the stock car. I have put over 25k miles on it in under 3 years. I can't say much on reliability since I just purchased it, but my Cobalt has over 100,000 miles and runs just as good as ones I test drove with half the mileage.
Small and cheap isn't usually the recipe for safety. The key fob if applicable , should also be removed from the key ring. The cheap materials and jagged plastic edges. Gas mileage is around 29-30 average mpg. The cheap materials and jagged plastic edges inside the Cobalt radiate an aura of cheapness.
Until this recall is performed, customers should remove all items from their key rings, leaving only the ignition key. An interim notification was issued to owners of 2007 and earlier models on March 10, 2014, informing them of the safety defect. Interior Design and Special Features Inside, attractive gauges and a full-featured stereo head unit give the 2009 Chevrolet Cobalt a modern feel. Fuel vapors, in the presence of an ignition source, could potentially cause a vehicle fire. This car is also alot cheaper than its competitors. The trunk lid uses outside corner hinges and two hydraulic assist struts instead of gooseneck hinges that can squash groceries when the lid is closed. It is a compact so I wasn't expecting a Maybach like back seat but it is very cramped.
I understand that in checking this that you may be better able to serve me and that I may receive offers for other products and services that may be of value to me. In side impacts, the Cobalt sedan got only three stars for front seat passengers and five stars for the rear. The Chevrolet Cobalt is a good option for inexpensive, high-value transportation. I love how intuitive the controls are;a'lot of newer cars have very complex controls that are irritating to master. This is a scatter-brained review from someone who was used to a V6 engine.
This expansion represents an additional 823,788 vehicles. I am looking up to 5000 and apparently they didn't want my money. This car has no major mods, yet. As of publication, there were cash-back and financing incentives available on the Cobalt that made its pricing more appealing, but incentives are always changing, and there were also incentives on the Corolla and Focus. It gets amazing gas mileage. Cheap, reliable, great fuel economy, and very safe. Interior materials quality is also disappointing, even at this modest price level, as is front seat comfort.
The interior overall is quite drab and plasticky, but the instrument panel area itself is very clean, straightforward, and well designed. Owners of 2008 and later vehicles will be mailed an interim letter on April 21, 2014. Just what I had hoped for and more! I had a car that was rusted, had a lot of problems and i just couldnt afford to drive it and in my opinion it was not safe. Those looking solely for a fuel-efficient, no-frills car, however, may not be put off by that. Up front, the coupe actually offers more head and legroom than the sedan, but only by fractions of an inch. Would like to have had a new gasket included with the new hub, or at least have the website recommend that part when ordering from the website. Last year's Sport trim level and its 2.
