Dependable car, highly under rated by the pro reviewers. by Russ, New Mexico, USA on 11/22/2010. Trim: 2006 Chevrolet Cobalt SS Sedan, Owned 4 years.
Pros: Very dependable. Currently have 139,000 miles on it. No trouble at all. Nice performance for a relatively inexpensive car. Nice little features like the Pioneer sound system with woofer in the trunk. Gas mileage is good unless you push it hard. Easy driving gets you 35 mpg +. Hard driving puts it in the 28-30 mpg zone. Mountain road handling is great in the SS.
Cons: Rear seat design is terrible. Not good for adults with big feet. Trunk opening isn't good for large items. However, there is a lot of room inside once you wiggle in the large item.
Overall review: Too bad they don't make the 4 door SS anymore. There were too many comparisons to the Chevy Cavalier. I think this car is in a different class than the Cavalier was. I've driven both, and this car is nothing like the Cavalier. I have spent less on this car with this mileage than ANY car I have ever owned. My Honda's always had timing belts and seals that had to be replaced along with constantly warping brake rotors. This car has been a gem on maintenance. I have spent ZERO dollars on non maintenance items since the car was new in 2006. That's 4 years at the time of this writing. This car was severely under rated by the professional reviewers.
