Some problems with my SS

Some weird stuff that i have noticed since i purchased my SS 3weeks ago. 1st thing the radio wont play most regular store bought cds went to dealer & had them try the cds that worked & didnt worked so they ordered my a new radio.
2nd was i hear clunking/knocking noises in my front suspension or steering when turn or go over bumps & all that stuff they say they didnt hear it but im gonna bring back & go for a ride with them + its hard to hear it when its down pooring outside all day & have all that road noise to hear the steerin noise & 3rd when i down shift into 2nd or 1st & when it gets to real low rpms i put my clutch in & stop then the rpms jump crazy from idle to above idle to just about stalling & it keeps doing that but then i tap the gas & then it idles fine

just some input for all you SS owners on whats up with my car

in my lancer it will drop to almost 550, then shoot up to about 900-1000, then fall back down again.. from what ive herd its to save gas, dont understand it myself, but i wouldnt worry about it

my SS does the same thing...sometimes it will do it when I'm driving slowly in first, and sort of "gallop" just give it a little gas and it smooths out. Nothing to worry about.

Steering clunk

I have a base Cobalt. I have 4,000 km's on it and it is also starting to clunk at very low speeds when turning, as well as going over speed bumps. I took it to the dealer. The dealer contacted GM and they said it is likely the connecting shaft between the steering column and the steering rack. They will be replacing the part under warranty. Hopefully it works and doesn't return again in 4,000 km's.

It kinda sounds like your IAC is not working right. i would get that checked out. as for the red inserts coming out, take it to the dealer and have them replace the door panle, and the clunking might be a intermediate shaft, i have had that problem on some of the 2002-2004 cavaliers.

yeah i had my sunroof trim thingy pop off too, took it back to the dealer and they put it back on then it came off again and i just glued it

but thats pretty much it, everything else is good

ps mine also does the crazy idle thing, but i think its just the electric throttle trying to compensate for the drop in rpms, but it seems normal
