    Chevrolet Cobalt Coupe Production

    I know that there's an article in this week's Automotive News that indicates that there's a "glitch" with Cobalt coupe production, and that arrival of the coupe at dealerships will be three weeks behind schedule. Does anyone subscribe to this weekly publication, and/or does anyone know the details? Do tell.

    I did a little digging, and I discovered that only Cobalt SS's are affected. Apparently, there are sheet metal flaws that have slowed the rollout. So Chevy dealers have been told that their orders for the SS Cobalt coupes will arrive three weeks behind schedule. Not to fear; only SS models are affected. So, SS production will begin early in January, 2005.

    And apparently the plant will shift to building Cobalt sedans until the SS problem can be fixed.

    This problem seems to be a different one than the one to which you refer above. In early December, GM recalled nearly 1,800 Cobalts and Pontiac Pursuits because a headlight bulb shield could loosen or break.

    Better to delay delivery than have to call all sold cars back.
