problem #1

Jan 292010


  • 7,000 miles
The contact owns a 2009 Chevrolet Cobalt. The contact states that the door handle broke. The muffler fell off of the vehicle while driving 35 mph. Two months later, the gear shift was broke. The vehicle was taken to the dealer for diagnostic testing. The gear shift was repaired; however, the contact was unable to shift into fifth gear. The weather was not a factor. On February 17, 2010, the power steering failed and the steering wheel began pulling to the left which made it difficult for the driver to maneuver the steering wheel to the right. The dealer offered the contact $13,500 for the purchase of the vehicle. The contact stated that the vehicle was being repaired by the dealer for one month and one week. The current and failure mileages were 7000.
