The car runs perfectly. The only issue I have is the steering column rattles (typical for cobalt) and I have had them since 50,000 miles and have gotten worse but still drivable. Also the control arm bushings need replaced according to mechanic but don't think I will be doing that too soon as it's not as bad as he says.
I am confident this car will get to 200,000 miles easily, and hopeful that it will break 250,000 and potentially 300,000. (I drive approx. 35,000 miles a year)
Just wanted to know if anyone else has had this same good luck with the Cobalt. There is a lot of bad publicity/discussion around the cobalt but I can't complain about a cheap new car lasting this long with barely any problems. Hondas have more things go wrong than this car. Let me know.
