2010 Cobalt 30000 Kilometres
Hi. I am a new cobalt owner and new to this forum so please excuse me If I do something wrong. My name is George and I am from Canada.
I bought mine a week ago and it is a 2010 LT with 30k Kilometres on it. Since I got the car I have been lurking around all the cobalt forums for an answer to all of my rattles, but no luck. Straight to the issues:
I have a really loud rattle coming from underneath the dash (at slow speeds) that I am pretty sure comes from the I-shaft, because I took out the 60 amp fuse and drove it around with no power steering - rattle still there. Is there anything I can do about it or just ignore it ?
The second rattle that really drives me nuts is a metal clunk from the Rear driver side that I hear at really low speeds and CAN reproduce by just Hitting on the tire with my fist. I raised the car on stands and got under it and was hitting the tire 20 minutes and feeling the parts on the suspension, but could not figure out what is it.
And the third one is coming from the front end on Moderate - Big potholes and it sounds something like a "Tung" rubbery / metal clunk again I think the Drivers side. I checked the Control arm bushings and they are in place and looking good, no metal contact there. I tried to push on the Sway Bar links but they don't move out of place (car sitting on the ground). Is that a sigh that they are ok, or I have to raise the car to test them ?
I have called the dealer and they told me that my car has NO recalls what so ever, which sounds strange to me.
I really need the car for work and I spent my last savings and even took a little credit to buy this car, because I was thinking that It will last me a few years without any problems, but now I feel a bit depressed and discouraged.
