Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have taken it to 3 different dealers, and Chevrolet customer support with no
results.  Car runs so bad I bought another car to drive because I dont feel it is
safe to drive.  Hard shifting from 2 to 3 gear(Automatic)  tac will go crazy and
it will go into passinf gear when it feels like it, with no warning.

The Chevrolet Cobalt, the car at the center of the General Motors recall crisis, was a losing bet from the start. "The Cobalt wasn't designed to be the best compact car. It was done to make sure that GM met fuel economy standards and utilized manufacturing capacity that was already there," said Jesse Toprak, analyst with Cars.com. So it's not that surprising that the Cobalt, and the versions of the car sold by GM's Pontiac and Saturn brands, weren't great cars. That's undoubtedly what GM CEO Mary Barra was referring to when she referenced the "cost culture" that governed what is now referred to as the old GM, prior to its 2009 bankruptcy, during Congressional hearings on the recall.

So in order to sell the 200,000 or so Cobalts that General Motors was building every year, it offered large cash incentives to buyers, and it sold them in bulk to rental car companies which bought them at rock-bottom prices. By 2010, the Colbalt's last full year on the market, fleet buyers accounted for more than 42% of its sales, according to figures from GM. GM declined to comment further for this article. SHAME ON GM OR WAS IT THE GOVERNMENT BAILOUT?
