#28 of 30 Cobalt's Lack of Dependability
Jan 24, 2011 (12:47 pm)
I bought a new 2007 cobalt before starting college because I wanted something dependable and good on gas. All was good until at about 50,000 miles I kept hearing a clunk coming from the front of the car when I hit speed bumps. Turns out its the front control arm bushings, and stabalizer bar. Turns out this is a VERY common problem with Cobalts but there will not be a recall because its not a safety issue. Try to be a good American and buy Domestic = Screwed!!!

Recalls are not formed based on if they are safety issues. GM monitors the complaints from customers to customer assistance. This is how they discover widespread problems. I am unsure of how common this problem is or what is the cause of it. The service department at your dealer would be a good resource for this information.

#30 of 30 Rattling Drivers Door
Mar 22, 2011 (1:53 pm)
I've had my 2009 coupe into the dealer twice for this rattling or buzzing noise inside the driver's door when on a macadam surface. I'm about to try and take the door panel off and jam insulation material inside. Does anyone know how the door panel comes off? It looks different than the ones that use the removal tool to pull out the plastic pieces that hold the panel on. Do I use a flat putty knife?
