Rookie cbe0621eac06868b3efe0d8d1d3611e23c60d3114864ea2ec19a68cfbd3eebab
My 06 Chevy Cobalt has had to have the oil pan replaced twice in two years. The first time locking up the engine and fortunately just the pan the second time. Is the pan made of something that cant withstand gravel roads?

To avoid constantly damaging the oil pan on gravel roads. I suspect it is more sever than just gravel like rough holes and such. Get a vehicle with better ground clearance that is probably better designed to handle such terrain.
