BUFFALO, NEW YORK -- I purchased my Cobalt in 2006 and didn't have any problems with it, it seemed like a great first car. A year later I noticed that sometimes mostly during the winter, I could not turn my key in the driver's side door. I could not unlock my car from that side and would have to open the car from the passenger side and crawl over the seat to open my door. After getting into the car I would put the key in the ignition and it would do the same thing. The key will go into the ignition however it will not turn. This problem has not gone away and my car is only two years old. I have recently taken it back to the dealer to be fixed.
The first time I took it, they were rude and acted like I was crazy saying it was working fine when they checked it and all they did to fix it was lubricate the lock. Two weeks later it took me ten minutes to start my car after trying to turn the key in the ignition. I just took my car in again and was called today about the problems. The guy told me basically the same thing that it was working fine in the shop and that they believe it's just a bent key. NO KIDDING, it's bent from struggling with the lock everyday. So basically they are planning on doing nothing to fix my car other than lubricating the door again.
No wonder why the car dealerships in America are doing so bad, if they plan on making cars that break or have problems when they are only two years old then who would want to waste their money on them and then bring them in to be fixed, only to be treated rudely by people who just want your money. As soon as my payments are done, I'm buying a TOYOTA.
