Alright so I just got a 2010 Cobalt LT on monday, and already i have noticed a problem.. The bumper sticks over top of the headlights, all the cobalts at the dealership have problems with gaps or overlapping of the bumper on the headlights.. I dunno if its a 2010 defect or not, but every previous year cobalt(and other clones) dont have this problem. The dealership told me there was nothing they could do, and it was probly due to the weather, I HIGHLY dissagree! The supervisor at the service center told me its because the heat and it being a plastic bumper..

Anyone have an idea?

Ill take some pictures tomorrow to show everyone exactly what i mean is wrong with mine, and hopefully pictures of the other ones at the dealership

yeah a lot of times the foam piece under the bumper cover needs to be modified. i took mine out completely and reinforced the bumper tabs on the impact bar with a couple of self tapping screws. cant see in there anyway :p

Yea, i just bought my LT a little over a month ago and mine has the same exact problem... i have an appointment to have it fixed this week along with a few other gap issues (my trunk lid is almost touching on one side and I can almost fit my entire hand in the other)

Ya the guy at GM that sold me the car showed me a bunch of defects on the 2010 Cobalt SS they have on their show room floor, im not too impressed about this buy!! I maybe shoulda stayed with the 05 SRT4.

Im going in tomorrow to see what they will do for me, cuz im starting to think i might just change cars... this thing is already seeming to become a PITA!

That explains it. Between Canada's communist setup for insurance and Ontario's "Street Racing" laws... yep.

He's Canadian. They don't have much in the way of options for "Shopping around".
