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

Jan 072013

Cobalt GS 2.2L

  • Manual transmission
  • 77,671 miles


I'm after checking everything that I can, struts, ball joints, tie rod ends, .

I installed new breaks and rotors.

But that loud knock is still in the front, You don't need to be going very fast and you can here it while moving in reverse. Both struts were replaced in 2011!! and they are not leaking, they both drop the same while on the ramp.

Steering seems fine but at this point ,I'm not sure anymore..

Is there anyone out there that has the answer to this question? I need this fixed.

help help help!!!!!
