GREAT gas mileage and fast like a sports car

I like the mileage per gallon I get out of it, It's cheaper to drive. I like how it gets up to speed quickly, like a sports car. It's the perfect size for us as a couple, yet when needed, we can still fit 2 or 3 people in the backseat. The one thing I don't like is, since I had my leg amputation, I have been unable to drive it since there's not enough room on the floorboard to maneuver my feet to be able to reach the gas pedal, but I do have an adapter now for left foot usage, I just need to get out and practice using it. Therefore when my dad's estate is settled, I will be buying a bigger vehicle, but will still keep the Cobalt

My cobalt is my baby I love her and hope she rides forever.

I bought my car 5 years ago for only 4,000 already seen its days, so I thought. With over 200,000 miles on her she's still driving just fine. It will be a hard car to get rid of she's done good for me. Always been reliable never had too many problems just had I replace the brakes. I use it to get back and forth from work mostly. Driving about an hour round trip. I love the radio and speaker system. But it has roll down windows which I am not too fond of. I am looking for a new car at the moment because it is time but I will keep my cobalt in case of emergency.

My cobalt and our journey.

The car is smaller so it helps navigating around the city. I am a bigger guy and the interior is snug to me but not uncomfortably so. The auto locks in the car have also stopped working as well as a weird electrical system that if someone slams my passenger door or trunk the tail lights and dash lights go out. Most likely just old wiring after a pretty normal wear and tear on the car. Other than those problems the car has needed little to no work and has gotten me to around 125k miles without major repairs.
