Chevrolet Aveo, Hatchback
#337 of 1655 Chevy Aveo (hatchback)
Feb 08, 2005 (6:10 pm)
I just bought a 2005 Chevy aveo a few days ago and have noticed an irritating noise coming from the engine, like a hum that consistantly shows up at highway speeds and vibrates through the gas pedal so that your foot feels it too. The car only has now 150miles on it. When I thought it was a defect I test drove another aveo from a totally different dealership and found that it was doing the very same thing.
Anyone else have this problem>?

i have never owned a car before, and am a junior in college, so therefore cheap. ive been looking at the aveo alot, and am so far impressed, i think its so cute, but i dont know that much else about cars, and if it would be good for me. does anyone have any advice? would this be a good first car for cheap? and also, how do i get it cheaper? ha, i mean, how do you talk the price down? im a newbie. thanks for any advice you guys have!!

I completely agree, the xA and Aveo have a lot in common. The xA handles a little bit better but has a harsher ride. It also comes with more standard equipment and gets better gas mileage.
However, the actual market prices of Aveos are much lower. I got my base Aveo w/ automatic (now considered an LS?) for $8500 That's about $4500 less than an automatic xA. That's a HUGE amount of money in this segment. Assuming that the Aveo is reliable (crossing my fingers - 4000 miles so far), at this price, it definitely trumps the xA.
I'm not sure what you are referring to. The engine is a little bit thrashy at high rpms, so maybe that is what you are feeling?
A lot depends where you are shopping, but I always start by looking for deals in the paper. Even the "1 available" deals can be had if you are quick.

Im also a poor college student. I just bought my first car (an aveo sedan)a few weeks ago and felt like i got a really good price. It was used since it was a 2004 but had low mileage and got it for around $7690. I bought it from a chevy dealership who was listing $10,900. What I did was get on the internet and do some price comparison for the same make and model i was looking at. Found some other local dealers who had lower price quotes and printed those off, and just brought them back to the chevy dealership. They will do just about anything to keep your buisness so they dropped their price to match really quick. But educate yourself...do a lot of research before you buy. Print off alot of varied price quotes from around your area. I love the car, it was easy on my wallet, it drives great for 22,000 miles (i like driving alot) and its gas is pretty fair, specially for the price i paid for the car
I do have a question for others though. Does anyone else have an issue with the seats? The foam seats were not as absorbant over lond distances as i thought. I put a pillow down and that took care of the problem but was just curious if anyone else felt the same? Still a great car though!

thanks for your advice! i am certain i am going to get one now, i just want to do a little more research, and earn a little more money! yay
#342 of 1655 adaptive shift control logic?
Feb 17, 2005 (10:50 am)
I've seen mention of the "adaptive shift control logic" that is integral to the Aveo's optional automatic transmission, on GM's site as well as other places online. However, a mention is all that I can find. Does anyone have more information or a link to more info on this?
#343 of 1655 Transmission Issue
Feb 18, 2005 (10:25 pm)
I have 140 miles on my Aveo. I bought it with 7 miles last Sunday. Almost a week ago. Man it sucked breaking that 100 mile mark. It doesn't feel new anymore. Anyways got a question and read every page of this forum. I hear people mentioning the "kick" in the tranmsission. Is this that almost jolt feeling that it seems to make when it's kinda cold (30F) or so and you go from 30mph or so to a dead stop when it shifts down through the gears as you roll to a stop? If so I have this issue. Just wondering if anyone else has it. It didn't seem to be like that when I bought it. I'm going to bring it to the service dept next Thursday and also take a brand new one on a test drive and see if it does it to that one. Any thoughts, comments, or suggestions would be amazing.
#344 of 1655 Another Problem! This one New
Feb 18, 2005 (10:40 pm)
I haven't seen this posted yet. The girl I'm dating has an '04 Aveo Sedan (I hate having the same car as her). I have the '05 LS Hatback but anyways she told me at about 15,000 miles 4 lines of her rear defogger quit working. The dealer is going to replace her entire back window now. Just thought I'd pass that along.
Her rear view mirror also started to come off. That's getting replaced too.
#345 of 1655 RE: Flytles still wondering
Feb 22, 2005 (5:42 pm)
Yes the clock is still on the fritz. The problem is that they should have fixed it the first two times and that doesn't seem to happen? I wonder how much more time I will need to spend chasing after incompetent GM people, they mean well and all but....??? Not impressed. Fixing the problem is more costly right now and I have no idea, why they cannot say it straight?
Did anybody know the KM/MILEAGE on their car, I'm still wondering if I'm getting good mileage or not, it seems like I'm always at the pumps, and certainly before the meltdown I was, do you get reimbursed for that, NO way!

my chevy dealer can get me window visors for $65 i didn't know if you can find them cheaper online somewhere and if i could see a picture of them before i buy them. They can't show me on at the dealer.
