Top Speed?

What should the top speed of a 2007 Cobalt LT automatic be? 170KMS or 180Kms?

I can not seem to find proper documentation on it.

I believe mine use to be 180 and is now 170. I know I could go rent a balt to make sure and then have the dealer fix it back but I dont really like going that fast and would just like to know what the proper specs are.

Isn't Kms Kilometers/sec??? lol If that's your unit of measure and your going 170 or 180 of them, it doesn't matter.



whatever 105 mph converts to... 170 km/h just did it

It really depends on what year your car is, and what tires came on it. Mine tops out at 105MPH (168.98 KPH) but thats because it came with the crappy continentals. Other LS/LT's that came with the 16 inch alloys and different tires top out at like 124 MPH (199.55 KPH)

See mine came with 15s. but when i first got my balt i was comparing it to my 03 Z24 and I remember hitting a bit over 180KMH before cut off not it cuts at 170KMH. Maybe I had a problem before and dealer fixed it instead of ruined it.

Anyway if mine sounds normal im ok with it then no real need to go that fast anyway.

Thanks for the replies

look up the tire ratings for your stock tire, then estimate a few MPH under it.
