I have a 2008 cobalt. This afternoon I got in it and the whole interior in the front was drenched in water. The past couple times it has rained it has smelled wet in there but never this soaked.


Asked by Jul 01, 2015 at 08:13 PM about the 2008 Chevrolet Cobalt Sport Coupe

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Is there a recall on a sunroof leak for
2015? The mechanics found that's
where the leak is coming from. The
carpet and all the seats are ripped
out. The sunroof tubes are not
clogged what so ever. My car now
surges, and has electrical problems.
Has anyone else ever had this
problem happen before? It's not
drive able and I'm going to check
with my insurance company to see
what they can do. We got a bad
storm last night and this pretty much
was the last straw with it. It needs to
dry out completely before anything.
Does anybody know how long that
usually takes?

I just love when everything falls apart as soon as you pay it off. It has had nothing but problems. Thank you both.

The Cobalt, like the Chevy Cavalier it replaced, was an enormous POS car that should have been aborted before it was given birth. Now that it's paid off though, how about checking out a Mazda 3 instead....far superior to what you currently own :) Summertime Deals are sizzlin' hot!!


How much do you get paid to say that?

Dry time will depend on your climate and whether or not you're helping it along with fans. Shouldn't take long though with lots of ventilation. I've had water in mine a time or two and it dries out pretty quick. They don't leak when they're new, so its safe to say that if its the weatherstrip that's at fault replacing it should do the job. Have the codes read on your car and that should give you some guidance on what it needs to get it running properly again. It's a machine, it needs some maintenance.
