Chevrolet Aveo, Hatchback
#1461 of 1655 2005 Aveo Hatchback Shop Manuals
Jan 21, 2008 (1:31 pm)
I have the 2-volume set of the shop manuals covering the 2005 Chevrolet Aveo for sale. They were purchased from Helm, the supplier for GM's shop manuals. Since the hatchback has not changed much since the 2004 model, I would expect these manuals would also apply significantly to the 2006-08 model years as well.
If interested, make me an offer. The manual set cost $110.00 originally. You can reach me at aveomanuallive.com (a temporary hotmail account that I set up for this purpose).

A national magazine is doing a story about the new popularity of small cars and looking for people who downsized from a larger car to a Toyota Yaris, Honda Fit, Nissan Versa, Mini Cooper, or Chevy Aveo -- someone who never envisioned themselves driving a small car, but felt forced to go small by gas prices that have shot above $3 a gallon. Or maybe they went small to show they are doing their part to save the planet, or stop terrorism, or maybe all three. Please respond no later than Feb. 6 to Chintan Talati at ctalatiedmunds.com.

Wave 54. The only problem is that if it is the fuel system, the 5 year/60,000 mile doesn't cover it. Trust me, I went to court. More money wasted. The fuel pump was bad and they had all of this BS against me. The best thing about my Aveo is that as soon as it blows up, I'll be buying something that has a real warranty so that excludes all GM products.

I'm so sorry about the STATIC you're going through with your AVEO.
You know, I wanted to get the new 2009 version of the AVEO5, with all its "improvements"...but after reading various negative messages concerning the AVEO in general I find myself not so turned on to the idea of owning one. Know what I'm sayin'? I know you do!!!
I hope this bad AVEO dream of yours, so to speak, comes to a favorable conclusion for you soon.

I'm curious why you're so dissatisfied with the warranty on the Aveo (other than it apparently didn't cover the particular failure you suffered). It's one of the best ever offered by a domestic. 3/36,000 bumper to bumper, 5/100,000 Powertrain.
I know some of the imports (and I use the terms "imports" and "domestic" loosely here, as the lines blur often) offer a 10/100,000 powertrain warranty, and I've seen TV commercials that I believe imply a "lifetime" powertrain warranty (though I'll bet it's not transferrable and I honestly can't remember who it was for... one of those things you half catch while getting up for another beer or to go to the can).
#1467 of 1655 A Factory Type Wing?
Feb 07, 2008 (9:23 pm)
Does anyone know where to get a factory looking rear wing for a 2006 HatchBack Aevo? I saw it on EBay last year, when I had no money to buy one, painted and all ready to just screw into the roof, into the holes that are up there under the paint. It was a company in Canada, and it was only like $195 for a Factory wing ,painted and shipped! BUT now I cant find them on there anymore.
I have looked online and there are only rear wings for the sedans. Does anyone have any leads, other than going to the dealer,and that is unpainted of course. And I am sure the dealer would be super expensive. With so many online companies that sell rear wings...doesnt any of them sell one for the 5 door hatchback??

Sorry, the fuel pump with the GM 5-year 100,000 mile warranty on new cars produced approximately after June 2007, is the most extensive in automobile warranties and covers fuel pumps, etc. You must be thinking of someother brand or don't own an Aveo.

Has your car overheated? Is your coolant fan working? It may be fuse.
