Angry My 09 Cobalt LT SUCKS!

I bought this car in Sept 09 and have had nothing but trouble. Its been in the shop a dozen times and it has less than 20000 kms on it. Most of these issues happened in the first 8000 kms. All started only 2 weeks after I purchased it.

Problems include - Struts, Steering column, Car alarm malfunction, 3 doors had to be welded, heater fan replaced, front bushing issues, driver side window sticking, gas milage sucks, displays blink on and off. Every week I hear a new sound that was not there before. I have wasted over 30 hrs of my time at the shop and dealing with rentals and customer service not to mention the back and forth with the manufactors.

I had less issues with my Hyundia Elandra which was 7 years old.

I would not recommend this car to anyone, unless they want to burn it!!!!!

I think he meant he bought his 09 in sept 08.

Check the build date/location form the car and post back the info.

The guy down the street from me bought a 07 silverado and it had tons of issues. In fact it had so many issues that the dealer had Chevy approve a 100k bumper to bumper on that truck. He has a contract from chevy that states everything is covered till 100k.
