Reviewed: 2010 Chevrolet Cobalt

2dr Coupe 155-horsepower 2.2L I4 4-speed automatic FWD

Why the 2010 Chevrolet Cobalt?

Price or payments

Cheapest new car I could find, cheaper than a brand new base model Hyundai Accent.

Dealer practices

The vehicles has needed FOUR warranty repairs in the past year (not so good), but in all instances the dealership replaced all the parts without any problem or arguments.


Pretty sharp considering it has electric power steering compared to other vehicles in its class.

Fuel economy

Around town it's not great, but out on the open road mileage almost doubles.

Safety & braking

All round airbags, half decent brakes and pretty good safety ratings.

Why Not the 2010 Chevrolet Cobalt?

Driving position & visibility

Rear visibility is pretty bad in the coupe, making it almost impossible to judge how far away something is when backing up.

Ride smoothness

Great on smooth roads, but gets *very* unsettled on uneven surfaces.

Materials & workmanship

4 trips back to the dealer for warranty repairs. Door seal, steering column, gear shifter, front suspension bushes. 1 year into owning/driving and various little rattles and vibration noises are appearing.
