CarComplaints.com Notes: The 2007 Cobalt inherited most of the problems from the 2005 and 2006 model years, but toned them down (a bit). Sure, the power steering still fails and the car has a chance of going up in flames due to a cracked fuel tank, but it’s not as prevalent as the older models. At least not yet.

In 2012, the Cobalt was recalled for gas tank fires but only for owners in certain states.

Then in 2014, the 2007 Cobalt was part of a massive GM recall due to a defective ignition switch that could cause the airbags to not deploy during an accident. The problem led to 13 deaths, government investigations and multiple class-action lawsuits.

2007 Chevrolet Cobalt Owner Comments

problem #1

May 012011

Cobalt LX 3.2L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 75,000 miles

It is not only the driver's side door handle that is stuck or won't open. The passenger side door handle is well on its way to having worn out parts and not opening. It appears that there are plastic parts in the handle mechanism which would obviously wear a lot quicker than metal. Just another Chevy lemon problem. Never liked the car from day 1!!
