2007 Chevrolet Cobalt LS 2.0 from North America
It seems to have a great engine, but lacks thoughtful refinements and safety logic
I have only had the car for four days, so nothing mechanical has broken yet.
I wanted a Cobalt with the side airbags and dealers had to get them from out of town. I was told they found one and went to pick it up. It had a spoiler on the back, which it was not supposed to have. I hate spoilers for their looks. Now that I am driving it, I find that the spoiler blocks my rear view while driving and backing up. I am sorry I accepted the car with the spoiler. I want it removed. The rear ends of these cars are high already, why would a designer add a spoiler or even allow that height? Have those who check on car safety sat in this vehicle and seen how the view from behind. If I had had a weekend test drive, I wouldn't have bought it. They have a car with great pick-up that's fund to drive -- feels like it's floating along -- but uncomfortable. You can't turn around in the seat and look out back window to back up because the seats are curved buckets and they stop you and stab you in the side.
Also, I have radio with CD and mp3 player. The instruction booklet says to hit the RPT (for repeat) key to repeat a song on a CD. But, there is no RPT key. I can't get through to GM to ask them about this. The owner's manuals are badly written.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
