I wanted a safe, dependable car
By Sad Dad on
2007 Chevrolet Cobalt SS 2dr Coupe (2.4L 4cyl 5M)
I wanted a safe dependable car to send my daughter off to college. She liked the sporty look, and we shopped until we found one with the bells and whistles. The car has 37,000 miles on it, so the bumper to bumper has expired (barely-- 36,000). While she was driving from Nashville, the power steering just quit working. I'm glad she wasn't in a turn! Dealership and GM are not very sympathetic, but when I googled "Cobalt power steering," I found that this problem is widespread. I hope that anyone considering the Cobalt will use google and research this power steering failure.
The electric power steering needs to be recalled and replaced.
