AIR BAGS

5/30/2016 - JACKSONVILLE, FL
I NOTICED THAT THERE WAS NO TURN SIGNAL SOUND INDICATING THE TURN SIGNAL WAS IN USE. AT THE SAME TIME I ALSO NOTICED THAT ALL OF THE WARNING INDICATOR SOUNDS WERE ALSO NOT WORKING (SET BELT, DOOR OPEN WITH KEY IN, LOW TIRE PRESSURE, ECT) NONE OF THE WARNING SOUNDS ARE NOW WORKING. IT SEEMS THAT THE LEFT FRONT SPEAKER IS USED FOR THE TRANSMITTING OF THE WARNING SOUNDS THUS THERE IS NO SOUND FROM THE LEFT SPEAKER. NONE THE LESS I FEEL THAT WITH THE WARNING SOUNDS NOT WORKING THIS IS A SAFETY ISSUE. EVERYTIME I START MY CAR THE SVC LIGHT STAYS ON ALL THE TIME , MY TIRES ARE ALWAYS WOBBLY WHILE SLOWING DOWN AND DRIVING. SAME AS I HAVE HEARD FROM OTHERS. GOT IN A HIT AND RUN IF I HAVE SIDE AIR BAGS THEY DIDNT GEPLOY

5/6/2016 - BANGOR, PA
THE DRIVER'S DOOR SPEAKER HAS STOPPED WORKING. THIS APPEARS TO BE A COMMON PROBLEM REPORTED ON CHEVY FORUMS FOR ALL MODEL YEAR COBALTS. THIS PROBLEM CREATES SAFETY CONCERNS AS ALL VEHICLE WARNING CHIMES AND SOUNDS ARE DIRECTED TO THE SPEAKER ON THIS DOOR AND ARE NOW NON-FUNCTIONAL. PARTICULAR CONCERN IS THAT THE TURN SIGNAL MAKE NO SOUND WHEN ACTIVATED. THIS CAN LEAD TO AN ACCIDENT WHEN NO WARNING SOUND IS GENERATED WHEN A DRIVER UNINTENTIONALLY LEAVES A TURN SIGNAL ACTIVATED. THIS WAS REPORT TO CHEVY (REF. 8-2076604032), BUT IT DOES NOT APPEAR THEY WILL BE ISSUING A RECALL.
