List of Issues with 2010 Balt 2lt
i recently bought a 2010 2lt coupe with 14,500 miles on it. when i first got it the grille was missing but it was pictured in the online pics of it. so they dealer installed a new grille and said it must have gotten stolen. so they let me drive a sedan lt. the sedan lt ran smooth and didnt make any noises or any issues. since ive had my car for about a week, there are a couple issues/concerns with it
i noticed that many GM cars have a flat piece of plastic under the front behind the bumper, i was told this was direct the air to cool off the car, my car is a 2lt and i dont see a piece like that on it. the sedan i was loaned had one. i wasnt sure if it came with one from the factory or not. the concern is about cooling,because i was driving back getting an alignment and after about 2 mins of cruising on the highway at speeds of up to 40 and a few red lights, the coolant temp started climbing high, it got to 217.the temp outside was about 60. i called the dealer and they said this is fine. seems a bit high to me.
i also hear a slight hissing noise on the right side of the car when i apply the gas, when i put cruise on i dont hear it, only when accelerating i hear a slight low hissing sound, i didnt hear this on the sedan so im concerned.
i got an alignment done the other day(the same day the coolant temp was high) and the place said i should bring it by the dealer and have them replace the brake hoses. i thought it was normal for a car to pull to the left or right when braking and the tires tracking on an uneven road. i was thinking it could be since the car comes with 17s stock? is this normal?
i know this is long and maybe im nit picking but i wont be comfortable till i fix these things
