2004 Chevrolet Aveo LS 4dr Hatchback (1.6L 4cyl 5M)
Bought this car new off the lot for my son. If you want it to last more than 70k, then don't get it. Has left him stranded from work, school, and home 5 times. Crank Shaft sensor at 60k, Radiator problems at 65k, engine blew at 70k, and transmission shifting problems at 71k. Not worth the headache for an "American car" that has parts from Korea. Should have purchased a honda/toyota but unfortunately they didn't offer smaller cars back in 04. Never will I buy an American car again, completely unreliable and of course it all happens after the warrenty runs out. Bought new for $14,200 and have put in $3000 in repairs in the last 3 years! That's not normal!

There should be a button that you press to unlock/lock doors. Maybe Chevy could take this Aveo off the market, that would be an improvement, or perhaps a serious overhaul would be in order?
