General Motors Complaint - 2007 Cobalt Hockey Puck
I hate this car. I bought it new and a week later the engine started knocking when you crank it. I have had it in 3 times to get that fixed, the first 2 times they say they can't reproduce the noise. the last they say its typical GM knock and all of them do it. I asked him to show me on a new one and it wouldn't do it, he tells me I have 100000 mile warranty, if it blows up they will fix it!Its embarrassing when it does it and some crappy attitude to have. They doors won't shut right and rubbed the paint off, the airbags stopped working, the signal lights won't work right among a bunch of problems and now it started leaking gas the other day. the car stalls, I'm down to 12 mpg and its using oil. I called GM and referred to a recall on 07 cobalt's for a cracked fuel pump module. My state is covered(only a small coverage area) but for some odd reason my vin is not. They have called me 5 days in a row, its like they are waiting to get the notice we died from inhaling the fumes or blew up. They want to get a $250 diagnosis so they can put it in the records in case they decide to issue a full recall. I shouldn't have to pay for your records. Safecar.gov has many more complaints like mine. Its really nice how every time something goes wrong I'm told its because I put some type of gas in it or its the wrong color or I drove under a pigeon while turning left on a Sunday made it crack and its not their fault, but here, get this diagnosis out of your pocket so I can put it in the records. The part costs as much as the diagnosis, why would I do that. All I get is I'm sorrys and it should be covered, calls all the time with no information other than am I going to get the diagnosis. I hate this car!
I have a 1995 Thunderbird with 260000 miles on it that I've had forever, I guess I will be driving it again. At least I can depend on it. maybe before somebody dies GM will take responsibility and fix the death trap, but I don't think they will.
