They had the car on the lift and showed me that one of the front wheel and suspension could be moved up and down a bit. However as the engine rpm stabilize on the ac compressor has caught up same rpm no slipping occur and no noise. What I do find to be particularly frustrating is that it feels like General Motors has realized there are serious issues with this model car and have quietly been trying to get them off the road. I got the car back in May of this year, and right away there was a noise coming from the hood. I am hoping it is the tire or alignment and nothing else. I turned in a old truck that was nickel and dime-in me for years.
An Aveo 2004 sedan has the perfect room and drives amazingly nice. I only have 60,000 miles on the car but these problems started long before this. So after a year we had to replace the brakes again. I took it to the dealer. I was reassured the noise would be fixed, and it was. They replaced the the engine control unit. Took it to the dealer and when I checked in the guy popped the hood and pulled out the transmission fluid dip stick.
I notice now if you buy cheap you get cheap. I was almost hit because my car wouldn't go. I was blessed to have a good samaritan pull up behind me and put on flashers and wait until the police arrived as without lights or flashers, it was difficult to see the car stalled in the wrong lane of traffic - creating the potential for an accident. It is not overheating, just getting in the mid to high range on the temp gauge. The bad news is that the competition has such cars too, and theirs are simply better in many ways. So no one will fix the problem.
It is really annoying and I would like to know what might be failing. It has 65,000 miles on it and when I tried crossing a busy intersection I tried accelerating and the mph would not go past 20, I barely escape the oncoming traffic. The car was completely stalled with absolutely nothing working - confirmed by police, a friend, and wrecker operator. Test drive one and compare it to the Yaris, Fit, Rio, etc. After doing that, the car still kept overheating, so I took it to a mechanic that checked for cracked heads. Still, it's been a very good experience.
I had to put it in park to stop it. Some times on the passenger side. So they start looking under the hood. Those South Koreans can build a hell of a car. Chevrolet has even attempted a bit of style and upscale feel, giving the 2009 Chevy Aveo a two-tone tan-and-black theme with fake wood trim. I'm 5'11 and weigh 210 pounds and find the car surprisingly comfortable.
Like most small cars, the Aveo's short wheelbase makes it bounce too much over freeway expansion joints and the like. Take your 14,000 and buy a used, nice car. The approximate mileage was 22,800. Curiously, the vent is absent on the sedan. How can I know, is the sensor ok or not and I should looking deeper in electric system for fault? Not running completely hot, fluctuates. It had about 32,000 miles on it.
Original review: July 6, 2015 I've had this car for almost year. For more information, refer to this page:. The time that topped the cake was when it stalled on me while I was on the highway, and I almost got rammed by a semi truck. Finally shutoff and we pulled it off the shoulder. Three were bulging and the other had bad wear on it.
I find it annoying to have to lock and unlock the hatch with a key from the outside. Easy to get in and out of. Don't trust ads from Craigslist. Yes I had the belt changed on time, regular oil changes, and 3 sets of tires. At ConsumerAffairs we love to hear from both consumers and brands; please never hesitate to. If you are looking to buy a Chevrolet. I do many makes and models of cars, So I can't tell you exactly where yours is.
