Heart Chevrolet Ltd / No help
I bought the car new from dealer. I also paid for the extended 100, 000 warranty. At the moment - 20K miles are on it. After a few months the "E" brake light (in the dash) came on and wouldn't go off. Dealership couldn't duplicate and that has happened lately.
Now for the last 4-5 months it doesn't always start. It just clicks and the radio and all that comes on so I knew it wasn't my battery. I called my fiancé at work and he told me to jiggle the shifter (automatic tranny) - I did this and tried it - again and again - after a few minutes it started.
This goes on to happen on and off sporadically - I call the dealership - describe the problem and they suggest I take it in. I do and they can't replicate the problem and refuse to look into it any further.
I did a little research and discovered this is a common problem several cobalt owners are experiencing - and meeting the same brick wall I am when they attempt to resolve it. I want Chevy to recall the cobalts for what I think is the Neutral Safety Switch inside the shifter - the car doesn't sense that it is in Park and will not start.
Obviously it will cost the dealer $$$ to fix the car and I feel they are not holding up their end of the bargain - I am paying for the car, the routine maintenance and insurance and I am paying for the extended warranty. Fix my car GM!!!
