Angry Cobalt Total Shut-Down While Driving.....AGAIN!!!!!!

As my son was entering a Busy Intersection tonight his 2007 Colbalt shutdown again. Last time this happened (couple months back) a the GM dealer charged us $400 and assured us that they fixed the Problem, I Say "BS" My son almost got T-boned this time as his car ground to a halt in the middle of the intersection. It appears to me that these cars are Dangerous but I guess someone needs to be killed before any action will by taken by GM. Guess I need to call the NSTB AGAIN!!!!

My girlfriends car has now shut down over 20 times in the past month. This is getting dangerous. She is on a very tight budget and cannot afford to have a dealer jerk her around and charge money for a problem that is well documented as a Chevrolet issue. What can you do for me?

If the car shuts down and even the dome light won't come on you have a bad battery. Dome light is totally seperate from ignition

Every minute spent angry is a happy minute lost for ever and ever!!!

I understand needing to use available resources efficiently. I can assist by doing the following:
1) With the last 8 digits of your girlfriend's VIN, I can look into our systems to see if there is an open safety recall associated to her specific vehicle (recall parameters are coded to VIN numbers for factors like production date and place).
2) I could assist in getting a dealership diagnostic appointment set up. Depending on different factors, this would likely involve a diagnostic fee. I would be happy to call them in advance to get that information ahead of time.

Overall, I would encourage your girlfriend to either get in touch with me here through a private message, or to even call Customer Assistance Center at 800-222-1020.

Best,

I have a 2006 Chevy Cobalt and over the past two weeks, my car has been idling down to less than 500 RPM and completely stalling out. This only happens when I am slowing down or stopping. It totally shuts down and I have to put it in neutral and restart it. Only twice now it wouldn't start and I would have to turn the key off, put it in park and wait about 10 minutes.

I almost got rear-ended trying to pull out from dropping my kids off this morning when it died!!! I have been putting the car in neutral when I am getting ready to slow down/stop and rev the engine to 1000-1500 RPMs to keep the engine running. This is getting very frustrating.... any suggestions?

This is not a total shut down just engine stalling out. Dirty throttle body, also you might want to change your air filter if it's been a while.
