I’ve just had my first automobile recall!
My 2006 Chevy Cobalt has a faulty ignition switch. If it doesn’t work, the steering mechanism and airbags could turn off.
That sounds simple, but it IS serious. USA TODAY says, “The ignition switch/airbag problem is blamed for 31 crashes and 12 deaths.”
Chevy has gone so far as to offer owners $500 credit if they want to buy a new car.
Meanwhile, I sit and wait while Chevy gets the parts. Might take some time. However, they WILL tow it away if I ask.
Chevy has said if I get really nervous, it will supply me with a loaner.
One of our sons told me a few years back that mine is a “throw away” car. I guess he meant it is one you drive into the ground without getting too upset about dings and scrapes.
I usually give my cars names, but not this time around. I just can’t get attached to a “throw away.” Still, it is the only car I have
I dunno, it is kind of exciting, but at the same time very sobering.
My first time.
