Rose Kacoyannakis usually takes her 2010 Chevrolet Cobalt to Midas and an assortment of other independent repair shops for brakes, tires, oil changes and other regular maintenance. With her car long out of warranty, she doesn't even consider taking it to her local Chevy dealer for service. But that changed last fall when a metal fuel line began leaking.
"With the fuel leak, I wanted Chevrolet to fix it," says Kacoyannakis, a retired landscape architect who lives in Hudson, Mass. "They know about this issue. There was a partial recall on Cobalts back in the day about fuel lines rusting out."
