Lowered Cobalt Owners

For those of us who drive lowered Cobalts. Does your local stealership give you a hard time about your car being lowered? I got the recal on the power steering motor. I was just wondering if i should expect crap from the dealer.

I never had any problems.
Now with the Mazda the one tech complained because he had to put it on boards to get the forks under to pick it up.

Depends on the dealership, their policy and if the tech working on your car has a big mouth.

they complain cuz they have to drive it up on multiple boards to get it on the lift.

now the insurance company has refused to cover it untill it is raised back to stock height and they have proof

Say what?! What company do you use? That makes no sense at all: the lower the car is the lower the center of gravity is meaning the car handles better and would thus be less likely to get into an accident.

It pretty much comes down to the person working on it. If they are a douche they will give you problems.

It's just like dealing with cops. Some of them will bust you for stuff and some could care less.

I have no problems at my local dealer but I work there so I don't really count in this scenario lol.
