Yes, I bought another Aveo. Problems thus far, check engine light started coming on at less than 9000 miles. Took it in and was told they'd have a service bulletin this has been a problem and they had to "reset a computer module." Just wondering, anyone having other issues with their 2010 Aveo? So far, other than the driver side front tire cover which kept coming off after being replaced...coyote decided to run clear across the other side of the interstate one night, wondering if a roadrunner was involved...no probs thus far. It doesn't seem to get quite as good gas mileage as my 2004 Aveo either.

My check engine light came on in my 2010 aveo. Dealership said it was a spark plug. I had it replaced by them and then noticed the car was still sluggish. I then had all plugs replaced and still noticed slugishness. Now my light came back on and I am now a little over the warranty miles. Dealership said the problem is with the aftermarket high end plugs. I told them it was a reoccurring problem, but they wont budge. How frustrating that Chevy will not back their product!

It sounds like the same problem that I am having. I bought a used Aveo with 40k on it. After I have driven it about 5k, the engine light came on. I also received the recall letter for the plugs and wires about the same time. I took it to the dealer and they replaced the parts but did not even bother to reset the engine light. (I guess that costs extra). I went home and reset the light. (I have an adaptor that hooks up to my laptop.) The light stayed off for a couple of days and the car ran really good. Then it came back on and the cars is running low on power again. I also notice that the brake get really hard to push sometimes. Mostly after the car is warmed up. I believe I am having an issue with a lack of vacuum. I am going to put a vac gauge on it to verify this. I am not sure what might cause the low vacuum. I do not hear any vacuum leak. I will post more later.

OK, here's my list on my "NEW" car.
Wheel bearing, cracked radiator, bad ignition coil, new spark plugs (twice), O2 sensor, cat coverter, bad wire to the O2 sensor, replaced air bag module for the passenger side twice, replace the entire instrument cluster, new hose for A/C, and now it is currently in getting all new injectors. I have opened a complaint with GM to have this car replaced. Talking with the "agent", she asked if I was concerned that the check engine light was on. My reply was no, I'm concerned that it doesn't go off!! Worst car I ever owned, used cars included.
