Like I always say, a wheel bearing can be bad from the get go or last forever. Cobalts and Malibus are notorious for prematurely losing wheel bearings, luckily they are cheap to replace. The first time I replaced a wheel bearing on my Mitsubishi Outlander it had over 450000 Kms with original alternator.
Wheel bearings on the Cobalt can easily be damaged by a bad pothole or even nudging a curb.
