2009 Chevrolet Cobalt XFE from North America
Good car for the money and it's American made!
Nothing at all.
I was looking for an equivalent replacement for my 1999 Saturn. This car is comparable to that.
So far the car has operated flawlessly. I like the 5-speed transmission. After having had automatic transmissions for the past 15+ years, I find it to be fun and gives the car more zip.
I think that the low resistance tires are a bit slick on wet roads and will probably switch to regular tires when it comes time to replace them.
After I put about 3000 miles on the car my highway mpg has settled in at about 40 mpg. My combined mileage hovers around 35 mpg.
This is the first car I've owned with the oil life indicator. It's nice to have and the oil lasts for 10,000 miles.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

I have the 2008 version of your car. I agree, the tires are awful and I can't wait to replace them with ones that grip the road better. My average MPG over the life of the car is 29.3, with a near even mix of city and highway. The A/C is FLAWLESS and no mechanical problems out of the car in 15 months of ownership.
