Every Problem a Cobalt Can Have

first of all let me say that without a shadow of a doubt i absolutly hate my 2006 chevy cobalt. It has been nothing but one problem after another with it. it's like i got the lemon of the lemons it has every problem that i see all over the internet. the only problem it didnt have was the power steering going out which i find ironic since its the only recall GM will honor. anyway when i first got my oh so wonderfull cobalt it was only 10,000 miles later that the locks decided to quit working. no big problem right its under warranty ill just fix it. so i did....and the they went out again...and again 3 times before the warranty went out i replaced them. on to the next problem i had a recall on the fuel injectors so i went and had them replaced. then the exact mile my warranty went out the entire electrical system decided to quit working including my lights shutting off while i was drving down the road at night eventually my bipolar car decided to start working again so i just let it be. THEN i realized that im only getting 16 miles to the gallon my husbands 2500 HD diesle gets better milage, come to find out its becuase my fuel modular whatever system is leaking and my car smells like gas all the time inside and out. this is one month after its paid off. I Swear i want it written on my gravestone that i WILL NEVER OWN ANOTHER CHEVY PEICE OF CRAP! i have no idea what these idiots are smoking that design these cars. absolute morons! i feel like im the butt of some sick joke. if ever there is a civil case against GM i will be the first one signing up. i want nothing more than to drive this bipolar helltrap starit through GM capitol headquarters and say "oops guess the brakes quit working, maybe your dumbasses should have take the time to make a real car instead of a couple of bucks greedy bastards!" anywho i just needed to speak my mind and say what needed to be said and that is that car companys should really take the time to make something of substance instead of being greedy, becuase there is a difference between wanting to make money and being so greedy that you sell something that could kill somebody just becuase you didnt take the time to make sure the product your were selling worked properly

dont mind them^ lol

and just cause your warrenty goes out, doesnt mean that they cant perform a recall. if htey say they will charge you for a recall, thats bullshit. take it straight too GM coorperate.

and the electrical problem, start simple. check fuses, check grounding. check the alternator. i found out that the battery that comes stock is a shit with terminals on it. replace the battery

you're dumb. go away. I have an 06 and i havent had a problem yet. And i havent heard of this happening to any other cobalt. Come to think of it ive never heard of this many problems with any car. As far as joining just to whine, maybe if you spent more time looking into your purchases before you jump into a buy, and not spent all your time on the internet whining on every site, you may have avoided such a lemon. A car that messed up deff showed symptoms

theres really no reason to call her dumb, this is a public forum and anyone can speak their mind, so she did. If she got a lemon then thats her problem.

R.I.P. :(

It's ok to vent but IMO there's this thing called a lemon law. Sounds like this car should have been turned in for all the problems it has had. It really sucks to hear things like this. Cars a mechanical and things will go wrong in time. I think the op can go threw this site and realize that very few I any have had this many problems with our Cobalts. Probability is low but we'll probably never hear from her again.

This!

But it is pointless to come rant on a forum, filled with people that like their cars, about how crappy of a car it is

Nah in my opinion there is reason. And to go along with what you said, its a public forum, anyone can speak their mind, so I did. The whole speaking your mind thing is a 2 way street brehh. With no disrespect towards you 4drLS. Dont take me wrong
