problem #1

Dec 282007

Cobalt 4-cyl

  • Manual transmission
  • 40,000 miles
Vehicle will not start after it is turned off after a period of driving. This occurs at least 5-10 times a week. The vehicle was taken back to the dealership, bresee Chevy in liverpool, NY for this problem, and we were told nothing could be done because the problem could not be replicated. We were told that we had a bad battery cell and were charged for a battery replacement after owning the vehicle for 2 years. The vehicle now has a "engine low power" warning and the engine light is on. The vehicle runs erratically, and there is concern of stalling while driving. This vehicle was purchased brand new in November of 2005, and is only used for commuting to work on the highway. Also, the tires on this vehicle were completely bald at 38,000 miles and had to be replaced, and the bearings on the front end also had to be replaced. This vehicle has major problems-it is an overall nightmare!
