The perfect nightmare!
Had to get a front and back-end alignment right after I bought the car. Then had to replace the rotors, brakes and axle boots 6 months after buying the car.
All power windows screeched when rolling up and down, until all of them quit working.
Driver and passenger seat belts locked up almost every time I turned a curve. (Dealership said it was a defect on most of the Aerios).
Constantly had to put the car in the shop for repairs.
Then the transmission started to slip at 87,000.
I sunk all my money into this car, then ended up having to trade it in on a Honda Element after I finally paid the loan off.
If I had bought a different Aerio, I probably wouldn't have had as many issues. It WAS a lemon, and I feel sorry for the person that got it after me.
Handles good (overlooking the rocks and bumps while driving), very small back seat, dashboard lights were frequently replaced.
Overall a terrible car.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
