Dearall others who wish to be informed...
Glad you got your cheap two cents in.... If you read my last post you noticed I included years. As well, you should have noticed chevrolet's vehicle problems occur and did occurWELL before the car's10th year ! As in my case, the A/C went out after ONLY 2 years! The repair would have been about 1,000 -- as I stated. There's no excuse. As well, the cost is irrelavent.If a car manufacturer can't (or in GMs case WON'T) build a car -- in this day in age-- that is of quality at ANY price then they will struggle to succeed -- which GM has prooved. To have any other consumer expectation in 2005 would be irrational ! Period. So, discussuing expectations on my part or of anyone else who values their time and money is not even an issue worth debating.GM itslef, through recalls, acknowledged severe issues (after they got everyone's money on initial sales--- i'm sure they only did recalls to avoid law suits and in a vain attempt to repair their reputation). So, please don't find excusesfor GM.There just aren't any -- excluding bad management.
I should say though,if my GM car had few MINOR problems before 80 thousand miles I probably would have been more forgiving. BUT, that IS NOT the case for GM cars/trucks.
Recall, in my previous post I stated other family members have GM cars too! The more expensive ones I might add... and THEY TOO have had major issues. No excuses for GM.
By the way, I heard GM's closing some plants... HAHAHA.They're closing one not far fromme in Atlanta, GA, in fact. Hmm.. the economy isn't so bad (i heard) yet they can't seem to saletheir cars cheap enough or fast enough.... I wonder why??I'll tell you why -- It's GMs lack of efficiency, lack of quality, and lack of excuses.
Stay away from cobalt and all other GM models/makes-- Buick, Cadillac, Pontiac, Cheverolet, GMC, SAAB, and all other companies they own, etc.... Hey, if you're reading this you can't say you didn't know....you can't say you weren'twarned that GM disrespects its customers by selling them garbage...remember that!
I'd like to add, have you ever wondered WHY GM puts so much money in advertising for OnStar ?? I have. And, my answer is because GMs cars and trucks can no longer sale themselves through solid, core product reputation so they must attempt to brainwash people via emotional TV ads into thinking they should buy GM cars simply because they can call 911 for you. Come on !!! Aren't there other service providers who do the same thing ?? Doesn't Hondaoffer a global positioning vehicle safety systemtoo?? Don't others as well? The answer is, yes. What's so special about OnStar?? Nothing. Why must GM insist on heavily advertising something that is not unique to them?? Just another example of mismanagement and smokescreens.
PS. Each of my chevrolet's front wheels nearly fell off 2 months apart.Maybe i'll talk more about that story another time. It reminds me though of when ... one of myprofessors mentioned that cavaliers (and all other GM cars in my opinion) were death traps. To parahpase Bill in the movie "kill bill" -- Baby, He wadn't kiddn !!
