hey thanks for replying to my post. im 23 yrs old, but, my uncle whom is 49 is going in tommorrow to sign papers for the cobalt lt thats yellow. he drove my car for a day and absolutely loved it. the tint is great for any car, especially if it is a red color. i had mine proffesionaly done and it really makes a difference. when i got to sit in my car, the car is actually cooler because their isnt so much sunlight coming in. in iowa we can have as dark as we want on the back 3 windows, so i did .02% visibility. makes it kinda harder driving at night but besides backing out of my driveway, im good to go! ive also filled the tank up 5 times and thats how i got that city number. im not sure, but i think since the car already had some miles on it, it must have gotten the bugs out or something. the most amazing thing about this car is the fact that when you want it to go, it goes! ive had a lot of vehicles pull up(mustangs, camaros, etc.) and when i put the pedal down, they definately pay attention! its an affordable car for all ages and when i went on a trip to minneapolis this weekend, i saw a cobalt coming up on my left. and if i were to guess how old he was i would say probably 56 yrs. old with a big ol'e smile on his face! thanks for your time reading this!

i am 52 years old and i am not going through a middle age faze. my cobalt has put the fun back in driving. i don't care if it's the fastest or the most luxurious. the reason i don't care is because thats not why i bought it. it looks slick and it's a blast to drive also not to be underestimated. it is not fast from the dig but from 35mph to 100mph it is as fast as i want and will go around a corner. and as for room there is plenty for me so thats enough.

Like anything else, it shouldn't unless you don't maintain it.

I'm 47 and just bought one for my daughter. I love driving a small car again and while it is a little noisy, it handles and rides very smooth. The motor has some real power too.
Best $11k I ever spent on a car.

Glad you like it. It should be a good dependable car for your daughter. Most four cylinder cars are noisy, but I think the Cobalt is one of the quieter ones especially with that the insulated steel body panels that they use.
#73 of 212 Like mine so far

07 LT 1 W/Auto & cruise but it only has 50 miles soooooooo
Bottom line is I've test drove 6 of them and waited until, hopefully, most of the bugs have been worked out.
Mine is a later build, 7/07 so maybe from here on out things will be pretty good. Can only hope!

I like it alot, some of the other Cobalt Message Boards don't have a soul who is over 25 yrs old. I'm 44. Plan to purchase a Cobalt next year. My wife isn't crazy about the idea, is loyal to her Hondas. But I want a small, affordable, American car and that's it. I'm from NJ - anybody else?
#75 of 212 Chevy Cobalt Paint Fading On Side Trim Silver
Aug 04, 2007 (9:09 am)
I bought my Cobult back in 2005 and I find my silver car losing the paint fading on both sides of my car with the trim. I can't believe what I am reading on here abnout my car the key sticking it has happened twice to me so far and now the fan isn't working for the air and heat when you turn it to the highest setting 4. And of course the paint fading. I am calling the dealer and taking it over next week. I hope the trim is under warranty as I still only have 25,000 miles on it. Any one else having this problem with there cobalt.
