#618 of 885 BIGDADDY AND FASTDRIVER
Jun 03, 2004 (7:55 pm)
Thanks for the 2005 information from Chevrolet on the Aveo. I too had several questions for Chevrolet Customer Service info and it took them several weeks to come up with all the answers However they did send me an e-mail every 10 days and beg me to be patient as they were having to go out of the country to get much of the info on the engine and automatic transmission and I assume they had to go to Holden in Austrailia and Daewoo in Korea. Eventually they came up with most all of it. This vehicle is new to them and so it takes time for them to get up to speed. This updated 2005 info from bigdaddy was the basis for some of the direct quotes in e-mails to me. The engine is also used in Opel and Vauxhall Astra models in Europe and the automatic tranny is an Aisin design. Ill bet SAAB and Toyota use one similar. Fastdriver, I too remember reading somewhere about an appearance package but cant remember where. It could have been a mistake or error by a salesman or magazine road tester and might have been erroneous.

Has anyone had any luck finding engine air filter and AC air filter for the Aveo?
I always buy Fram when I can. I usually avoid going to the dealer for stuff like filters.
I DID find a Fram OIL filter.

You might want to reconsider your oil filter choice. Fram filters used to be high quality in the old days but they make just about the worst quality filters on the market today. They have less filtration, no antidrain valves, and the ends of the filters are made out of cheap cardboard. Purolator makes a much better filter at a still reasonable price.

Supertech filters sold at Walmart are less than $2 and of very good quality (manufactured by WIX).

quite informative. Will the SUV come here in 2006 as a Suzuki or Chevrolet?

Both companys will probably have thier own modles

Hi everyone... Does anyone know of any significant changes, if any, for the 2005 Aveos? Is there something coming out in the next model year that I should wait for as opposed to buying a 2004? Any informaion is most appreciated. Thanks!
