FUEL/PROPULSION SYSTEM

9/19/2016 - FRONT ROYAL, VA
AFTER SMELLING A STRONG SMELL OF GASOLINE WHILE DRIVING ON THE INTERSTATE, I PULLED MY CAR OVER AND NOTICED A HUGE PUDDLE OF GASOLINE ON THE GROUND AND STILL STEADILY POURING OUT. I IMMEDIATELY DROVE IT HOME AND PARKED IT AND TOOK PHOTOS AND A VIDEO OF THE DEFECT. I HAD LOST OVER HALF A TANK OF GASOLINE IN JUST 30 MINUTES. WITH THIS FUEL PUMP LEAK BEING NEAR THE EXHAUST, A HIGH PROBABILITY OF EXPLOSION CAN HAPPEN AND HAS HAPPENED TO OTHER MODELS OF THIS VEHICLE, DIFFERENT MODEL YEAR. I HAVE SEEN THAT THE CHEVROLET COBALT 2007-2009 HAVE BEEN RECALLED DUE TO FUEL PUMP LEAKS, BUT THE 2010 HAS SUSPICIOUSLY BEEN LEFT OFF OF THE RECALL.

UNKNOWN OR OTHER

9/13/2016 - ASHBURN, VA
I RECEIVED A RECALL NOTICE ON MY CHEVROLET VEHICLE AND MADE AN APPOINTMENT FOR THE RECALL WORK AT TED BRITT CHEVY IN STERLING, VA. AFTER TWO HOURS WITH THE VEHICLE, THE TECHNICIAN PRESENTED ME WITH A LIST OF REPAIRS COSTING $1200+ THAT WOULD NEED TO BE PERFORMED BEFORE THE RECALL ACTION COULD BE TAKEN. NOT ONLY WERE THE ISSUES SUSPECT, BUT MORE IMPORTANTLY NONE OF THEM PRECLUDED THE RECALL WORK FROM BEING COMPLETED. THE EFFORT TO SHAKE DOWN CUSTOMERS FOR ELECTIVE, OUT-OF-POCKET REPAIRS BEFORE A DEALERSHIP PERFORMS A LEGALLY MANDATED ACTION IS CLEARLY FRAUD.

8/1/2016 - SAN DIEGO, CA
I HAVE OWNED A 2010 CHEVY COBALT SINCE 2012. SHORTLY AFTER PURCHASING, THE CHECK ENGINE LIGHT TURNED ON. THE POWER LOCKS ERRATICALLY LOCK AND UNLOCK. THE WINDOWS WILL BECOME JAMMED AND SUDDENLY WILL NOT ROLL BACK UP. CRUISE CONTROL WILL RANDOMLY STOP WORKING. I HAD ISSUES WITH THE TRANSMISSION WHICH COST ME OVER $3,000 TO FIX. THEN, THERE WAS THE IGNITION SWITCH RECALL WHICH THE DEALER FIXED AT NO COST. BUT NOW I AM HAVING PROBLEMS WITH THE POWER STEERING. I HAVE TO TURN MY IGNITION OFF AND ON FOR THE POWER STEERING WARNING MESSAGE TO TURN OFF BUT THEN IT TURNS BACK ON A FEW MINUTES LATER. I AM AWARE THAT THERE WAS A RECALL FOR THE POWER STEERING BUT YET THE DEALER REFUSES TO ADDRESS THIS ISSUE WITH MY CAR BECAUSE THEY SAY THAT RECALL WAS PERFORMED BY A PREVIOUS OWNER. THE NHTSA WEBSITE STATES BULLETIN 14115 REGARDING POWER STEERING RECALL BEGAN JULY 17, 2014. MIND YOU I HAVE OWNED THIS CAR SINCE 2012 AND HAVE NOT HAD THE POWER STEERING RECALL ISSUES FIXED. N140115 ALSO STATES THAT IT INCLUDES "2010 CHEVY COBALT AND VEHICLES REPAIRED IN RECALL 10V-073 THAT RECEIVED REPAIRS PRIOR TO MAY 31, 2010." THEREFORE, THEY SHOULD BE HELD ACCOUNTABLE AND FIX THIS PROBLEM WITH MY VEHICLE OR PROVIDE ME WITH A CAR THAT IS SAFE. THE FIRST TIME MY POWER STEERING WENT OUT I WAS ON A FREEWAY ON RAMP WHEN MY STEERING WHEEL LOCKED UP. I COULD HAVE DIED! THIS IS A LIFE THREATENING ISSUE AND I SINCERELY BELIEVE THIS IS A LEMON CAR.
