Could have been just a wee bit more specific-as it is, the review is worthless.

Yes, but look at the witty way in which he arranged the words to spell "Aerio". Surely that is worth something?! Okay, maybe not...

We have a 2004 Aerio SX AWD that we purchased with 11k. It has been a great car! We now have 40k on it and the only thing we have done is replace the tires (the factory ones are crap!),and replace the front brakes. The dealer we purchased it from has free brakes for life, so it did not cost us a cent. It goes thru the snow great here in Michigan. My wife loves it!

Summary:

Do not like it because it has given me nothing but grief

Faults:

Front sway bar bushing came out of mounting bracket 4 times before 5,000 kms.

Tires were chewed up due to factory alignment problems and had to be replaced at 5,000 km.

Had viscous coupling replaced for AWD at 5,000 kms.

Had passenger power door lock fail.

Rims are now scratched and gouged due to all the repairs.

Front suspension clunks on bumps.

Styrofoam on rear bumper has been detached since new.

General Comments:

Car is good in the snow.

Nice stereo... I guess it is supposed to be used to drown out the noises of parts failing.

Climate control works well.. hope it stays that way.

Probably would have more positive things to say about the car if it hadn't fallen apart as soon as I drove it off the lot.

I agree. I bought mine 05 new and have 26,000 on it. This will be the 3rd time I have had to replace the tires on it. I love the car in the snow, but who can afford tires every 8,000 miles. Will not buy another one.

All your problems are due to over-inflated tires and the mishandling of the car. Reduce tire-pressure to at least 30psi and stop ripping the car apart with regular hard accelerations and braking. My tires have no wear on them after 22,000 miles.
