A lot of those issues are driver habits as well though. Question, did you ever replace your fuel filter?

sounds like you got a bad car. i love my balt. 20k miles and going strong. no problems. i am worried about the stearing cuz i have heard a few issues about it. but overall this car is holding up way better than any other car i have ever had. but i have the ss.

i have heard at around 30-40k miles the struts start wearing a lil bit if ur an aggressive driver.. and my only complaint is that the stock rear brakes pretty much suck, they gouged and it only has 14k miles on it.. its an 08 SS/TC.. front brakes are totally fine tho

yeah at 30-40k your power steering will go out but if you go to safercar.gov and search for cobalt steering recall and print it out and take it to the dealership they will replace the part for free. Mine has had that problem and that is what I did to have it fixed.

Both of those are under factory recall. you will be fine.
