I just want to pass on to other Cobalt owners on how well I faired in a 35 mph head on collision. I owned my 2006 Lt since 11/05 and only had a few minor issues with it ( key stuck in ignition, fuel sensor and radio replacement). I put on over 45,000 miles on it till it met it's end. Last week I hit a patch of black ice and the car slid into oncoming traffic. I hit a mini van head on doing approx 35 mph and walked away without a scratch. The car was totaled but neither of us was hurt. I was so satisfied how it protected me and my wife that I ordered an 08 this week.
Bottom line is I may of spent some time at the dealer with it, but didn't spend a second in the hospital after such a severe crash. Thumbs up for front end safety.
