This is the most reliable car I've had EVER

This car has really lasted me a while. It is a great, easy to drive, basic car. It does not use a lot of gas. This car is very reliable. The only cons are the features that it does not have. First, the windows are manual. Although manual windows are better in some circumstances (won't ever get stuck is car battery is dead), I prefer the automatic windows because it takes longer to roll them up. My car was bought used, so the sound was alright even though I could still notice that the front speakers don't work. This car is pretty spacious. I like how you can fold the back seats down to access the trunk. This car does not have any armrests but you get used to it. This car does not overheat, the AC is GREAT. The heater is also great in the colder months. I haven't had any major issues with my car other than the couple of manufacturers recalls. Every time I get my car serviced for a recall, I get great customer service and have never had to go back for anything. Another thing I like about my Chevy Cobalt is the stats on the dashboard. It lets me know the temperature outside, how much miles I have, how many miles till I run out of gas, and also oil percentage so I never run out. This is the best car I have had and will continue to have.

Chevy cobalt great on gas!

My 2006 Chevy cobalt is still in great condition being that it is 12 years old. It is still great when it comes down to the gas mileage. Front side of the car is spacious for both the driver and front passenger. Center console has enough space for two to rest their elbows. Only if you like to share that is. Center console does lift up in down if you do not like to have it down while driving. Glove compartment is average in size not too big. Has a great sound system by pioneer. Can customize equalizer plays CD's and mp3 CD's. Sadly their are not many cup holders. Two in the front and two in the back. Trunk space can fit up to three two 32 inch suitcases and about 3 medium sized duffle bags if going on a trip. Will fit all your groceries in one trip. The battery is located in the trunk not in the front like most cars. Which is different gives it a little more characteristic in my opinion. If you keep up with oil change and give it gas treatments and change tires when needed, this car will give you no troubles. It is great for a single person, a couple even a small family.

It's not a high tech, very simple layout.

I have a 2006 Chevy cobalt. It's a smaller car but I love it. Great on gas only problem is it has a small gas tank as well so you have to fill it up every few days. I haven't had any issues with the car. The air and heat work excellent. The windows are not electric. You have to roll them up manually. Its sealed off very well. You don't really hear any road noise in it or anything like that. The seats recline back pretty far as well as the seats themselves. I have long legs so I push it back and have plenty of space. The steering wheel is adjustable also. The one thing I wish it did have would be cruise control. I really like the steering. Its alignment is on point. I would say it's a more modern looking car since it has a spoiler on the back side. It is a front wheel drive. It doesn't use much oil intake. The lights are very bright. Definitely a dependable vehicle.
