problem #1

Cobalt 4-cyl

I purchased the vehicle new and there has been problems with the fuel gauge not registering full when it is filled up. Sometimes it goes to the 7/8 mark and sometimes it doesn't even go to there. They told me that it was a programming problem, and there should be an update for the computer. I took it in for the update and apparently it was not fixed. Also, the fan motor on the vent controls only works on high. I have had the car in to the dealer twice for this issue.
