2010 Chevrolet Cobalt Owner Reviews & Problems
Reviews For Chevrolet Cobalt
Cobalt issues, water leaks
The 2010 Cobalt LT is a small 4 door sedan. Its trunk is hard to lift up and there is no trunk release inside of the car by the driver. The shifting column is between the front seats instead of near the steering wheel. It is a reliable car, however the battery runs down easily if you forget to turn the lights off and leave it for even an hour. Then after the battery dies you cannot take the key out of the ignition and have to get it jumped. The car does not warn you as you are exiting the vehicle that you have left your lights on. The nice thing about needing to jump start it is that there is a jumping port located underneath the hood because in order to access the actual battery you would need to get in the trunk. The door handles are cheap and break off easily and take over $300 to fix. The driver side airbag leaks water any time it rains which is a known issue with these vehicles to which no recall is present. The seat belt is annoying to deal with but there is a user fix to that.
The cobalt keeps me going daily - on my job, store, and activities.
This 2010 Chevy Cobalt used to be my fathers - he only drove it locally so the mileage is low. Something is wrong with the front suspension but the dealer said it is ok to drive on (because it is too expensive to get fixed for me right now). Other than that, it is been a good little car - no major problems (I get the oil changed regularly). I think the one thing I do not like about it is, there is no lumbar seating (I drive a lot and that would be a good support on my back - right now, this car hurts my back from driving so much). The trunk is very spacious and when I put the back seats down, I can get a lot of stuff in the car! It seems to handle well in bad weather (water/snow) - I never had issues with it in the weather. Other than it being 8 years old now, one thing it is doing: it is beginning to make a loud noise when I turn the fan on for defrosting or heat/air, it is been very annoying (I just turn the radio up)! It has been serving my purposes very well.
Perfect car for family, friends and commuting to and from in your daily lives.
I love our car! It's one of the best cars I have ever had. It's been a very dependable car for me and my family. It's been a very low maintenance vehicle and when I have had to buy any kind of repair parts for my car they have been very affordable. My family is very comfortable. Traveling in this vehicle and there is some storage and leg room for a small car surprisingly! As long as I keep my car serviced I get amazing gas mileage also. I also keep my tires rotated and this seems to help with even better gas mileage. I commute back and forth to work a long ways everyday and I love that I feel comfortable and safe not having to worry about being. Stranded. All in all this has been an amazing car for me and my family and it still is!
It smells of lavender yet I have never had an air freshener. It is great on gas.
My vehicle is a real go getter. She always will get you to where you need to be and can always rely on it getting there. The heat works. The air conditioner works. The brakes are good. The seats are comfortable. The trunk is very spacious. The tires hold great air pressure. The steering wheel is a little small. I wish the gas pedal was bigger. I wish it was faster. My hood does not open. My exhaust fell off last month and I had to replace it which cost me 200 dollars but I got to meet a nice mechanic who loved hiking and wearing slacks and walking on the beach with his dog named Kermit.
A candy red 2010 Chevy cobalt lt 2dr with most of its original parts.
It's a newer model compared to last car (1995!), however the only real downside is that its a two door instead of a four door. With two doors it's a lot harder to see behind you when you changing lanes, backing out, or even parking. It's also not as sound proof compared to other cars and trucks, and you'll feel ever bump and divot in the road. Other than that, it's a pretty decent car. It's great with mileage, doesn't have any car troubles, it has both a CD player and an auxiliary output for music! It's a perfect starter car for anyone.
My Chevy Cobalt is a very dependable vehicle.
Overall, it has been a pretty dependable car. We have had to take car of normal wear and tear items like brakes and tires. We have also had issues with the sensors that regulate oil and the engine (they will indicate issues when none exist). We had to have some engine work done a couple of years ago, and we leaked oil for a short time. All things considered, we have had the car almost 6 years, and it has been very reliable overall. If I had it to do over again, I would purchase the car again in a heartbeat.
CHEVY COBALT COUPE LT (2010) sturdy yet zippy!
Fantastic car to own if you don't want to drive a large clunky boat around anymore! It gets around the city great, is easy to parallel park with, and I've used it for long road trips and group camping with all supplies needed in the car too. Side airbags make me feel safe having been in an accident before. Sturdy and durable car. The only problem I've had isn't major, but annoying- almost everything to do with the cars electrical system has glitched. Luckily it was still under warranty.
I love my little car. It is like driving on the road in a go-kart and I love it!
The only issues I have ever had were clogged/bad sensors on the computer boards. A few have gone bad, but that is the worst issue I have had that was not caused by wear and tear. It does seem that I need to change my oil more often than any other car I have ever owned, as that is was I was told partially clogged a couple of the sensors I have had replaced. I got them replaced, then they clogged again a few months later, and luckily, has not happened again since.
Great affordable compact car.
My car has been mostly problem free, with only a few issues due to use. I love the simplicity of the design, and the great gas mileage is good too. This car rated high for safety, and knowing that makes me feel good driving it. I have used this car as a personal commuting vehicle as well as an around-town car; it has done well as both. I can easily fit two car seats in the back seat, and the trunk is capacious for most needs.
Amazing car! Super durable!
This is a lovely car! It is currently 8 years old, but the owner before me basically trashed it. It is driven across the country multiple times and it has the mileage to prove it. In spite of all of that, it is a beautiful car! It makes noises and it bumps and jerks here and these but they're never consistent issues. I get about 400 miles to the tank (12 gallons) and it is served me well on frequent and long road trips.
