Huge win for car owners! All TSBs to be made public. The Center for Auto Safety just made the NHTSA (US Government) make public the full text of all TSBs from now on. They are the same organization that has petitioned the NHTSA & filed lawsuits to protect car owners over exploding gas tanks & other major safety issues. Whenever you drive in your car, you are safer thanks in part to a lot of work over the years by this small but very effective consumer advocacy group.

Please take a moment & say thank you by donating $5 or whatever you can to the Center for Auto Safety.

2008 Chevrolet Cobalt Owner Comments

problem #4

Apr 012014

Cobalt LT

  • Automatic transmission
  • 100,000 miles


Basically all of my speakers quit working at one time or another. I can usually get sound from the rear speakers but the front rarely work. I'll have my radio on with sound coming from the back so I have the volume up pretty loud, then all of a sudden my front speakers will work again, blasting loud music, scaring the crap out of me. The front speaker malfunctions also prevent my turn signal from sounding and other dash noises such as the dinging notifying me I left my keys in the ignition.

problem #2

  • Automatic transmission
  • 30,000 miles

A couple of years after we had the car the front speakers completely STOPPED working. I'm not sure if this is covered under warranty or not,but it's really a pain in the ass and it's going to cause the back ones to go out as well since they're the only ones that work at all. Again, I ADVISE NO ONE TO BUY THESE PIECE OF CRAP CARS!!!!
