Man take that insurance money and put it down on a killer car like an Evo or something, But sorry for the loss that sounds scary as hell, you must've just got out in time becuase that thing is scorched.

You ran away from your new car burning up??? The Cobalts don't have a fuel cut off switch???

better the car than me. i dont know if they have a fuel cut off or not. but a week before this happened my dipstick popped out and i hadnt had time to take it to the dealer or clean it so i dont think that helped with the fire.

no insurance didnt even ivestigate. they just looked at the car and are figuring up the value of it right now. they said about 18k or 19k but they are gonna bump that up since it is an SS and has the power sunroof and all.

I saw this thread the other day and didn't know what to say. That really sucks. How much do you still owe on your car? Depending on how much money you pocket after paying off the car I would get something faster and sportier. Well, maybe not faster, but sportier would be fun. Say hello Solstice GXP. Just my opinion.
