#157 of 212 Why cant i hookup my phone to my hands free calling?
Jan 05, 2009 (4:59 pm)
so i cant figure out how to hook up my phone to the hands-free calling in my car. the sales rep did say that i could not hook up my phone but the gm website and all the forums seem to say i can. the car is a 2009 LS xfe and the phone is a verizon LG chocolate.
was the sales rep correct? am i just missing something- like perhaps is my particular model for some reason not compatible? or am i not hooking it up right?
i push the hands free button and say 'bluetooth' which is what the gm website says to do and nothing happens- the lady refuses to recognize the word bluetooth.
any feeedback would be appreciated.
also for the record i am really happy with the cobalt overall. i loved my last car which was a chevy cavalier and i hoped the cobalt would live up to the standard the cav set and it totally has so far. its a great little car, dependable, really fun to drive, and it gets excellent gas mileage. the only complaint i could make is that the seats- while ok for around town, to and from work, etc- kind of suck on long drives due to lack of lumbar support. but still overall i would say its a fantastic car at a ridiculously low price.

I am surprised about your seat comment on long highway trips because that's where the firm seats are supposed to excell. I have read just the opposite. GM paid ton of money to have those seats specially made by a very well known seat manufacturer with a lot of bench/road testing. I read an article about it years ago.
#160 of 212 supercharge
Feb 11, 2009 (7:24 pm)
I was wondering if anyone knows how long the supercharge should last, and if it dies if anyone knows how much it may cost to fix. I am asking because I am leasing a 2006 supercharge and am looking at buying it out at the end. But I do not want to have a huge problem after if the supercharger goes on it.

It's not too bad to replace---about $1400.

The Bluetooth capability is an option and the lumbar control comes with the LT models. It sounds like you have a base model which may not have come with the Bluetooth capability.

It could easily last 10-years or longer if you follow the manuals maintenance instructions.
#164 of 212 Still a happy camper at 13K miles
Feb 15, 2009 (9:45 am)
My 08 Cobalt LS sedan with the automatic tranny now has a little over 13,000 miles on it, and I am still VERY happy with the car. I have had NO issues with it, since the leaking rear window was fixed.
I have pretty much just forgotten about gas mileage and no longer drive in a super fuel conserving manner. The little car gets 26 or 27 MPG with my mix of highway (but NOT super highway) driving and in-town driving. I was getting a couple miles per gallon better than that when I was really trying to maximize my gas mileage.
I just love that peppy little engine, the nice styling, the good handling, the quiet ride (for such a small, inexpensive car), and the good front seat room and huge trunk.
I couldn't be happier!
