2006 Chevrolet Cobalt LS 4dr Sedan (2.2L 4cyl 5M)


We needed a nice car and that is what we thought we were getting. I bought this car and there was a tapping noise in the front end. I made it known to the salesperson and they took it into the shop. The shop said that the strut arms and some other things need to be changed out. They change them out and charged an arm and a leg. The dealership paid half and I need to pay the other. After about a week, the same stuff is happening and this time it is shaking even more. I took it back to the dealerships shop and the Mechanic told me that the sound that we are hearing and the shaking that it is doing, is just road noise. Now when I try to stop, the car makes kind of like a "jack brake," noise.

Best Features

I like the fuel ECON that the car gets.

Worst Features

I Think that there should be more recalls on the front end. Is it going to take someone suing the company for a wreck before they do it?
