  • Anon :36, HUH?

    A big recall will hurt GM, who has been promoting the Cobalt heavily as a safer, more reliable car than a Toyota. Our local Chevy dealer has been running a promotion "Worried about that Toyota in your garage? Trade it in for a Chevy!"

    Funny thing, the Chevy dealership AND the Toyota dealership are both owned by the same company.
