2004 Chevrolet Aveo Base 16 valve Daewoo from North America
I love the car; if I only had it
My timing belt broke only 19,000 miles after the dealership replaced it. They were supposed to have done the timing belt kit, but I don't understand how at only 19,000 miles it could break and ruin the engine. I had to beg and beg, and finally they accepted, but no agreements have been made. I love this car, but seriously only 19,000 miles after it was supposed to have been replaced at a dealership. This really blows my mind.
I have invested all I have into the car, and I only got 19,000 miles and the new belt broke, destroying the engine. That is not fair. I followed all recommended maintenance. There is something not right about that; a car should get more miles than that before the timing belt breaks. Is there a defect in this motor?
Recommended maintenance was all completed by the dealership. I see so many posts about this, and it is a shame to take money from people that already don't have much, and can't afford to get it fixed. If there is a defect, please take care of your customers. 19,000 miles is all I got on a new timing belt before it broke after being replaced. So all the money I spent was for 19,000 miles, and for me I paid a fair amount for mine. Now I have no car because of this. This is not fair to a consumer, especially if they follow the recommended maintenance and it still occurs.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
