#2232 of 2240 Do Cobalt Trunk Lids Pop Open ?
Dec 07, 2012 (2:43 pm)
Do the gas-filled struts in Cobalts normally open the lid after the lid is raised past half-open ?
I need to manually assist opening my trunk lid all the way. That doesn't seem right.

I wasn't able to find a definitive answer for you in the resources I have available for you. Hopefully other Cobalt owners will chime in soon; if you decide to have this or any other concern evaluated by your dealership, be sure to keep us informed of that! We're available to assist you in that process if you were to contact us at socialmediagm.com (include your name, contact information, and the last 8 digits of your VIN with your inquiry).

Please Cobalt owners, give me some input on this. I need corroboration that Cobalt trunk lids normally "pop open." Dealer's first response has been that they do not.
Sarah, when I experimentally tried socialmediagm.com, that URL was not recognized as valid.

My Cobalt is in Columbus getting a college degree, but I believe it pops up when the remote is used to open it. IT stands up a few inches from that but does not open itself fully. However, raising it with a hand has it holding itself fully open on its own.

I know that Edmunds changes the "" symbol to a picture rather than text to help prevent spamming. If you still have no luck, give sarah_gracegmexpert.com a try.

I haven't heard of this being an issue.
Steering, suspension, rotors, ignition switches, and others but not this one

Could someone with a 2010 Cobalt coupe or sedan please go to their car, push "open trunk" on their remote and tell me this:
Does the lid pop open completely?
If it only unlocks but doesn't pop-up at all, does it open itself completely after you give it nudge towards the fully open position?

It doesn't pop up, it just unlocks it. I don't think its supposed to pop up but I could be wrong. Mine never has

Thanks Steve333. I guess I must accept that Cobalt trunk lids do not pop-up like my former six Cavaliers. Perhaps some engineer saw that as a safety issue.
