To find information on 2005 Chevy Cobalt recalls, go to GM.com, click on the All GM Sites link under the Safety Recall Information header, click the Learn More button, and search for recall information after entering the car's Vehicle Identification Number. Any needed repairs appear in the results.
To locate the Vehicle Identification Number of the car, look on the lower portion of the windshield on the driver's side or on the inside of the driver's side door. The Vehicle Identification Number is also listed on the car's registration documents. This car identifier is 17 characters long, and it contains both letters and numerals.
The company enters the Vehicle Identification Numbers of all recalled vehicles into the website, so it may take several days for all of the vehicles to show up during a search. Previously completed recalls do not show up in the search.
