2006 Chevrolet Aveo LT 4dr Hatchback (1.6L 4cyl 5M)
I recently bought a used 2006 Aveo LT hatchback at 103025 miles. The carfax stated it had regular service done according to the timetable laid out in the manual. So mostly the car runs excellent. My chief complaint at first were the brakes. Ive driven a assortment of cars of various qualities in my years. And I suspected that since it had scheduled maintenance done it would be in good quality, but the brakes are very weak. It feels as though the car is too heavy for the brakes it came with. I tried
replacing the brake pads and rotors with OEM quality replacements, and while it made the braking slightly better, it still feels far too heavy.
Larger diameter brakes, front and rear rotors. Stiffer suspension.
