Does a 2008 Chevy Cobalt have Bluetooth?

I am looking for a used car with modern features to get me through the next five years or so. Bluetooth is key for my family, but I don’t need a ton of fancy onboard navigation stuff. Does a 2008 Chevy Cobalt have Bluetooth?

No, the 2008 Chevy Cobalt does not have Bluetooth.
Bluetooth was a new addition to the Chevy Cobalt, starting with the 2009 model. While it is possible to add a Bluetooth adapter to an older car, it doesn’t come standard on the 2008 Cobalt.
Adding Bluetooth is simple, and there is a price point for everyone. You can find some wireless receivers that plug into the auxiliary power outlet (cigarette lighter) for between $10-$30. If you want to splurge, have a new radio head unit installed with Bluetooth capabilities for between $200-$500.
It was in 2010 that Bluetooth became pretty standard across all car makes and models. If you’re looking for a used car and you want OME onboard Bluetooth, you might want to confine your search to 2010 and newer vehicles.
Anytime you purchase a used car, especially from a private seller, have a mechanic inspect it before finalizing the purchase—they can let you know if the used car is a lemon or a great deal.
Another tip is to purchase car insurance before you pick up the vehicle and download your proof of insurance to your phone. This will cut down on your paperwork and wait time at the dealership.
