2005 Chevrolet Cobalt Recalls

Electrical & Lights,April 10, 2014
RepairPal Expert Overview:

In order to help prevent rollaway type accidents, all late model vehicles are designed so that the transmission must be in park (or reverse for a manual transmission) before the ignition switch can be turned to the "off" position and the key removed. These vehicles are being recalled because the key can be removed when the ignition is not in the "off" position, increasing the risk of a rollaway type accident. Dealers will inspect the vehicle and replace the ignition lock cylinder as necessary. 2 new keys will also be supplied and programmed as required.

Electrical & Lights,February 10, 2014
RepairPal Expert Overview:

These vehicles are being recalled because the weight on the key ring and/or a jarring event while driving may cause the ignition switch to move out of the run position, turning off the engine. If the key is not in the run position, the air bags may not deploy in the event of a crash, increasing the risk of injury. Dealers will replace the ignition switch to correct this concern.

Suspension & Steering,March 29, 2010
RepairPal Expert Overview:

The driver may experience a sudden loss of power steering assist. If power steering assist is lost, it would require greater driver effort to steer the vehicle at low speeds, increasing the risk of a crash. Dealers will replace the electric power steering motor to correct this concern. This recall is being implemented on a rolling basis beginning March 29, 2010 trough November of 2010. The General Motors recall number is 10023.
