I have an 09 and I never noticed it before, so I guess it's the perfect size. What I did notice is that I never use the tilt. I just put it one position and forget it. When I drove an S-10 pick-up I used to use the tilt all the time. I'd raise it all the way so it would be easier to get out of the truck. I don't have that issue with the Cobalt.
