Model Highlights

For 2009, the Chevrolet Cobalt is available in several trim levels and two body styles -- The LS, LT and SS trims are available in either coupe or sedan models. A 155-hp 2.2L Ecotec inline-4 with variable valve timing powers LS and LT cars. A 5-speed manual is standard on LS and LT coupes and LS sedans, while a 4-speed automatic is standard on LT sedans and available on the rest. SS Turbocharged Cobalts are powered by a 260-hp 2.0L inline-4, which puts out 260 ft-lb at just 2,000 rpm. The potent engine is mated to a 5-speed manual.

Standard safety equipment across the range includes dual-stage front airbags as well as head curtain side-impact airbags, daytime running lights, a tire-sealant and inflator kit, and a year of service with OnStar. The SS adds traction control, StabiliTrak stability control, antilock brakes as well as a tire-pressure monitor.

Cobalts in LS trim come nicely equipped with amenities such as air conditioning, a 4-speaker CD stereo with MP3 playback and XM capability, dual power outlets, 4-way adjustable driver's seat, 60/40 rear split bench seat, tilt steering and a theft deterrent system.

LT Cobalts add a center console with armrests, power door locks with remote keyless entry, power windows, and sport cloth seating with driver manual lumbar control.

The SS Turbocharged Cobalt adds both performance and style. The SS gets a premium Pioneer 7-speaker stereo, Bluetooth hands-free connectivity, titanium-faced sport guages with an A-pillar-mounted boost guage, and a leather-wrapped shift lever and steering wheel, which features audio and cruise control. Outside, the SS can be identified by halogen fog lamps, chrome exhaust tip, performance suspension, a spoiler and aggressive body moldings.

Popular options for LS cars include antilock brakes and traction control, while LT models can be ordered with an upgraded stereo, chrome trim pieces, Bluetooth, cruise control and keyless entry. SS Turbocharged Cobalts have an available power sunroof and limited-slip differential.


Pros

Good ride; attractive styling; SS model provides solid performance value.


Model News

For 2009, the Cobalt undergoes a few changes. Both the Sport coupe and Sport sedan have been dropped from the lineup, as has the available 6-disc in-dash CD stereo. An SS Turbocharged sedan joins the Cobalt family. Bluetooth hands-free access is available, and a tire sealant and inflator kit replaces the standard compact spare tire. GM's OnStar system now comes standard. LT sedans are now only available with an automatic transmission, and the Performance Appearance Package has been replaced by the Sport Appearance Package.


Value Writeup

The 2009 Chevrolet Cobalt blends attractive styling with a host of engine choices, from fuel-sipping to fast and furious. The Cobalt adds standard amenities that make the vehicle a smoother, more comfortable, and even more convenient choice. As an alternative to cars like the Honda Civic and Hyundai Elantra, the Cobalt's value is hard to beat. With both coupe and sedan versions available starting at a low entry price, the Cobalt offers something for everyone.

Summary
GENERAL MOTORS IS RECALLING 276, 729 MY 2009 BUICK ENCLAVE, CHEVROLET COBALT, HHR, MALIBU, TRAVERSE, GMC ACADIA, PONTIAC G5, G6 AND SATURN AURA AND OUTLOOK PASSENGER VEHICLES. THESE VEHICLES FAIL TO COMPLY WITH FEDERAL MOTOR VEHICLES SAFETY STANDARD 102, "TRANSMISSION SHIFT POSITION SEQUENCE, STARTER INTERLOCK, AND TRANSMISSION BRAKING EFFECT", AND FMVSS 114, "THEFT PROTECTION AND ROLLAWAY PREVENTION". ON SOME OF THESE VEHICLES, THE TRANSMISSION SHIFT CABLE ADJUSTMENT CLIP MAY NOT BE FULLY ENGAGED. IF THE CLIP IS NOT FULLY ENGAGED, THE SHIFT LEVER AND THE ACTUAL POSITION OF THE TRANSMISSION GEAR MAY NOT MATCH. WITH THIS CONDITION, THE DRIVE COULD MOVE THE SHIFTER TO "PARK" AND REMOVE THE IGNITION KEY, BUT THE TRANSMISSION GEAR MAY NOT BE IN "PARK".

Consequence
THE DRIVER MAY NOT BE ABLE TO RESTART THE VEHICLE AND THE VEHICLE COULD ROLL AWAY AFTER THE DRIVER HAS EXITED THE VEHICLE, RESULTING IN A POSSIBLE CRASH WITHOUT PRIOR WARNING.

DEALERS WILL INSPECT AND ENSURE THAT THE SHIFT CABLE ADJUSTMENT CLIP IS FULLY ENGAGED. IN THE EVENT THAT THE CLIP DOES NOT ENGAGE, THE SHIFT CABLE WILL BE REPLACED FREE OF CHARGE. THE RECALL IS EXPECTED TO BEGIN ON OR BEFORE MARCH 24, 2009. OWNERS MAY CONTACT BUICK AT 1-866-608-8080, CHEVROLET AT 1-800-630-2438, GMC AT 1-866-996-9463, PONTIAC AT 1-800-620-7668 AND SATURN AT 1-800-972-8876 OR AT WWW.GMOWNERCENTER.COM.

Summary
GENERAL MOTORS IS RECALLING CERTAIN MODEL YEAR 2005-2010 CHEVROLET COBALT AND MODEL YEAR 2007-2010 PONTIAC G5 VEHICLES EQUIPPED WITH ELECTRIC POWER STEERING. THE DRIVER MAY EXPERIENCE A SUDDEN LOSS OF POWER STEERING ASSIST THAT COULD OCCUR AT ANY TIME WHILE DRIVING.

Consequence
IF POWER STEERING ASSIST IS LOST, IT WOULD REQUIRE GREATER DRIVER EFFORT AT LOW VEHICLE SPEEDS, INCREASING THE RISK OF A CRASH.

DEALERS WILL REPLACE THE ELECTRIC POWER STEERING MOTOR FREE OF CHARGE. THE MANUFACTURER HAS NOT YET PROVIDED AN OWNER NOTIFICATION SCHEDULE. OWNERS MAY CONTACT CHEVROLET AT 1-800-630-2438 AND PONTIAC AT 1-800-620-7668 OR AT THE OWNER CENTER AT WWW.GMOWNERCENTER.COM.

Summary
General Motors LLC (GM) is recalling certain model year 2005-2010 Chevrolet Cobalt, 2006-2011 Chevrolet HHR, 2007-2010 Pontiac G5, 2006-2010 Pontiac Solstice, 2003-2007 Saturn Ion, and 2007-2010 Saturn Sky vehicles. In the affected vehicles, the key can be removed from the ignition when the ignition is not in the "Off" position.

Consequence
If the key can be removed from the ignition when the ignition is not in the "off" position, the vehicle could roll away: (a) for an automatic transmission, if the transmission is not in the "Park" position; or (b) for a manual transmission, if the parking brake is not engaged and the transmission is not in the "Reverse" position. This potential for rollaway increases the risk for a crash and occupant or pedestrian injuries.

General Motors will notify owners, and for vehicles that were built with the defective ignition cylinder and have not previously had the ignition cylinder replaced with the redesigned part, dealers will replace the ignition cylinder and cut and, if necessary, re-learn two ignition/door keys for each vehicle. For vehicles that were built with the redesigned ignition cylinder or had the ignition cylinder replaced with the redesigned part, dealers will cut and, if necessary, re-learn two ignition/door keys for each vehicle. The manufacturer has not yet provided a notification schedule. Chevrolet owners may contact General Motors at 1-800-222-1020, Pontiac owners at 1-800-762-2737, and Saturn owners at 1-800-553-6000. General Motors' number for this recall is 14113 for the ignition lock cylinder and key replacement, and 14133 for only key replacements. Note: Until a vehicle has been remedied, owners and operators are advised that when exiting, to be sure that the vehicle is in "Park," o...

Crash Test Note
Results based on a 35 MPH frontal crash and 38.5 MPH side crash. Results are reported in a range of one to five stars, with five stars indicating the best crash protection for vehicles within the same weight class. This test used driver and passenger belts and airbags.

NHTSA Rollover Rating

Rollover Note
The Rollover Resistance Rating is an estimate of your risk of rolling over if you have a single vehicle crash. It does not predict the likelihood of that crash. The Rollover Resistance Rating utilizes a "fishhook" maneuver which is a series of abrupt turns at varying speeds to see how "top-heavy" a vehicle is. The more "top-heavy" the vehicle, the more likely it is to roll over. The lowest rated vehicles (1-star) are at least four times more likely to roll over than the highest rated vehicles (5-stars).
