hi, i have 2004 aveo hatchback with 54,000 miles on it.
i found on the chevrolet website that aveo's and cobalts come with a 5 year/60,000 mile powertrain warranty.
i called chevy right before i found this information and the lady told me that its 3 year/50,000 mile warranty.
does anyone know for sure which is correct?
my starter and timing belt just broke and i dont have a million dollars to fix this stuff. any help is appreciated. thanks.

I don't know about the 2004 models, but I am looking at the window sticker that I saved from my 2005 hatchback, and it clearly states "5-Year/60,000 mile limited powertrain warranty...see dealer for details".

I just found the quote below on Edmunds review of the 2004 Aveo...
"If the Aveo has a weak spot to consider, it would be its warranty. With only three years or 36,000 miles of bumper-to-bumper coverage and five years or 60,000 of drivetrain coverage, the Aveo doesn't quite match its competition."
I would think you are covered on both parts, as they are definitely drivetrain related...

A) As "clearly indicated in their official report" this is "clearly" not the same Aveo as is currently released in the United States. Look at the picture of both the car being tested, and the picture of the car tested. The description of the side air bag system also confirms this.
B) The 2005 Kia Rio they tested corresponds with the 2006 model in the US.
I understand your desire to inform everyone of how poorly the _next_ Aveo (sedan only, at this point) did in the tests, but please do some research before you come in here and bash a car based on false information.

I admit the front on the Euro NCAPís designated Model 2006 Aveo test car looks slightly different from the U.S. model 2006 Aveo. I do not see any difference in the side view of the crashed car.
Your statement that the crash test is for the coming U.S. Aveo model 2007+ may indeed be correct. I find it impossible, however, to believe that GM-Daewoo has managed to design a new model for world export that is significantly less safe than the current U.S. 2006 model.
Incidentally, I did not write about the safety of the Aveo solely for existing Aveo owners benefit but more so for all the people that value safety and check out this forum before they buy. Hopefully GM-Daewoo will find a way to improve the design of the model 2007+ Aveo, based on the Euro NCAP test.
