Chevrolet Complaint - Chevrolet Cobalts gone BAD!
I live in New Orleans, Louisiana and after I experienced problems with my car after hurricane Katrina I purchased a 05 chevrolet cobalt in November of 2005 from a certified used car dealership. I did a Carfax report on the car and nothing came back on the car. I purchased an extended warranty for my car as well. within the first month It started when I needed my headlights pushed up and my air conditioner was leaking all over the floor. When I brought my car to the dealership the front desk people came to inspect the problems and informed me that my car had been wrecked in the front that my warranty was now void! NOt to mention that I had to bring it 5 hours away from my house b/c all of the New Orleans dealerships were our of commission or I would have to wait 2 to 3 months. The dealership told me they could not do it unless I wanted to pay for it. I contacted the owner of the dealership and basically threatened to call all local news stations and he fixed the problem. About 2 months later I was commuting from Jackson, Mississippi to New Orleans weekly, and my cruise control stopped working and the wheels began shaking very badly on my way back to New Orleans. I took it to the dealership I purchased it from they told me while they had it they would fix a recall with the headliner. So I go to pick it up and everything worked fine. 2 days later I realized on my way back to Mississippi that the cruise control would not work at all on the interstate, only on highways. The dealership made me wait 2 months to bring it back in and gave me a line of crap about my warranty not covering it and the part I needed replaced would be an absurd amount of money. About 6 months my automatic door locks stopped working and would only work when used with my alarm remote. A few days after that my driver side door would not open. 2 months later my car locks started going crazy and locking and unlocking themselves when the car was on and off. A few months ago my unlock button on my alarm remote stopped working. I changed out the battery but it still did not work. Now here I am driving down the street and I hear beeping and see that my car is telling me that the power steering is completely out. Imagine that....just when you wonder how could it get worse..... Me and my husband are looking for another car for him and I will NEVER buy another Chevrolet or American made car again!! EVER!!! I can honestly say that I HATE CHEVROLET!!!
