What Options the Car Came With.

My daughter just picked up an 2008 cobalt LT with 10,000 miles on it. I was surprised to find it didn't have the TPMS on it or even anti lock brakes.

Is there any way to find out what options the car actually came with?

Is there a build sheet someone in the car I can get at?

Talked to GM and they say there is a charge for them researching it, never said what the charge was though?

Can a dealer get me that info for free?

Thanks

No tpms? Mine is an 08 lt and has it. Pretty sure they have anti lock as well. Sure it's not an ls?

First things Welcome! Yeah, man her name is Sarah and she will hook you up she goes by the name ChevyCusSvs...If you want look her up and PM her the VIN on the car and she will send you the build sheet in a PM.. No need to pay for anything, you may just have to wait till Monday for a response. Anyway, any manufacturing questions she can help you out with.. As far ABS i am pretty sure all 08's came with it! Just might be drums in the back. Hope this helps.

Welcome.

I have an 08 LT as well. When you say no TPMS, do you mean the car is not reading any tire pressure or there's no mention of it when you scroll through the DIC? Your sensors could be missing for any number of reasons. The wheels may have been replaced by a cheapskate.

As far as the ABS, I feel your pain. I don't have it either.

It shows nothing on the DIC, car is low mileage, 3 or 4 months ago it had 10,000KM on it, now has 17,000KM or about 10,000 MILES. I imagine it still has the original tires, hubcaps and wheels look like what I have seen on others.

You might be able to look up your features based on your VIN. Sarah might throw some help your way. Just PM her.

Also, I don't think TPMS is mandatory in Canada, so you might not have that option. If not, IMO, consider yourself lucky. I hated having to buy a second set of sensors for my winter wheels (and I hate that I'll probably have to do it again before the car is gone).

Maybe you don't know what to look for, this is what the sticker looks like.
