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.

  • miles
Own a 2007 Chevy Cobalt, and after 9,000 miles of highway driving the car wheels dented in causing the vehicle to shudder loudly. Brought it into the Chevy repair shop and they said I had hit something. Unfounded claim whereas I had hit nothing.
