I bought a 2004 Chevy Aveo brand new. It has been a great car until now. On 12/30/2010 the timing belt broke and ruined the top end. The car has 64,000 miles and before that the air conditioner motor sometimes fails to operate. It also has begun to stick in park. When the timing belt broke I started investigating others with this problem. I wished I had been notified by GM to check the timing belt at 30,000 miles as I would have saved a bundle of money in repairs. My Aveo was down for 2 weeks. And I am out thousands of dollars.Report it
I bought a 2004 Aveo also. It was a pretty good car until 2 yrs ago. I have had to timing belt break on me twice within a 2 yr. period. When I got it fixxed both times I was told the Valve would adjust automatically but now I'm finding out differently. Now my CV Axle has gone out. When I tell you I am fedup man I am fedup. I wish I had been notified by someone not to even purchase this car.Report it
