My 2006 chevy Cobalt had wheel bearing issues starting at 40,000 miles. At 50,000 miles my front end suspension (lower control arm and bushings), struts, and doors locks started acting up. My door locks will jam and I will be trapped in my car until they (door locks) decide to work again. Fortunately for me usually only one stops working at a time. The dealer says that it just needs greasing; I have tried every grease under the sun and none has fixed the problem. This is a serious safety issue and this car should have a recall to at least fix the doors!!!. The dealer wants to charge over $1,000 per door for repairs. I have heard of some peoples doors never opening again and the door having to be cut off to be repaired. If something were to happen you need to be able to quickly and safely get out of the car. Please please please recall this door issue on the Cobalt!.

Loud noise/clunking while going over minor to moderate bumps and passenger side front brake 'grabs" when applying brake and "jumps when releasing. Have had passenger side wheel bearing replaced under warranty as well as power assisted steering motor under recall. Vehicle is driven very little due to out of state work. I have not had it to the dealer for inspection but plan to do so soon.

I first owned a chevy cavalier. I loved this car!!!! so when I bought my chevy Cobalt I thought I was getting the same dependable car. Boy was I wrong. I have already had to two sets of tires on my car, replaced the bushings and wheel bearings. I have never been so disappointed over a vehicle in all my life. As far as I am concerned I will never purchase a Chevrolet again. At least Toyota stood by their mistakes.
