Getting a Cobalt That Hasn't Been Maintained, Should I Be Worried?
Hello everyone, I'm new and have a question for all of you seasoned Cobalt owners. I've gone without a car for a while now, and my father is planning on giving me his Cobalt (In favor of a FR-S). However, I know that this car hasn't been maintained properly, and I'm a little weary about whether I'm getting a free car, or a free repair bill. :/
The car is an 06 LT coupe, with 60k miles. However, it's been driven around with 0% Oil life for about 3 1/2 months (approx. 3k miles) now and to my knowledge, none of the filters were replaced. Hell, I don't think it's ever had a tune up since he bought it at 45k, and the brakes feel like they stutter even when gradually stopping from 45mph. The car also idles somewhat rough (a faint hesitation every now and then). I live in New Jersey if it matters.
I know I shouldn't look a gift horse in the mouth, but should I try to get out of this car ASAP, or am I just being paranoid?
