Chevy = Cheaper Heaps EVery Year
Having the car only a few weeks, and had to take in for a ticking noise at around 3000 miles, the top half of motor had to be replaced. Not sure exactly why. Dealer said something about seeing scratching marks inside motor. They had the car for 2 weeks. They don't have parts in stock for this car.
Had another issue with the engine still ticking, and overall not sounding right. Dealer said something about having to replace lower half of engine, and had the car for another week.
Ticking noise from the engine from the beginning; not all the time, but it was there. Took it in several times, and they said they could not find a problem. At 8000 miles or so, a bolt that holds alternator snapped off, causing serpentine belt to break and taking out the cylinders and pistons, having to have the engine replaced. Also left me stranded in the middle of no where. Car was in the shop for 3 weeks.
Several problems with the car pulling. Had it in for alignments. And 2 tie rods had to be replaced. Leaving me stranded again. They held the car for a week.
The Aveo had problems with the oil leaking; the dealer said that it was the oil plug that the oil change place uses, and I have to use the ones they have that cost $10.00.
Overall, the car was good on gas and handled well in the snow in Michigan.
But had so many problems that I filed a Lemon Law and won.
There are many other problems that I had with the car, but too many to list; those were the worst ones. The others were minimal compared to the motor.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
