I agree with the "Remember all manufacturers are capable of making a lemon or two so do not be fooled by those individuals who have had bad experiences with a certain brand of vehicle -- every manufacturer is capable of producing a lemon or two" as you said. People are passing up a great little car!
As of today, Chevy has sold more than 20,000 AVEO's since it's release. Most owners on here post the 2004 / 2005 are the ones that are having issues. There is nothing posted for the 2005 / 2006 AVEO on the HNTSA website (national recall data base). And the 2004 has one minor recall for that particular year .
Go to www.NHTSA.gov to see a list of recalls for car makers. Just an FYI.....if you are cocerned about recalls, take a look at the Ford Focus since it's release. There have been NUMEROUS reports about this car. My significant other has one and we've been having issues since the car was purchased. On a more positive note.....WE MAY BE the only ones having issues with this car.
#50 of 83 I own 2 Aveo's
May 31, 2007 (10:10 am)
A 2004 and 2007, both sedans. The 04 has 63K, no problems except for the new bushings - dealer covered it. The 07 has 6K - no probs at all. Both cars average 28 - 33 MPG in the city, well into the 30's (best is 38 MPG) on the highway. I drive the cars as they were meant to be driven, NOT like a sports car. Use the cruise if you have it, keep the oil and filters changed. Common sense stuff. It's not a Mustang and therefore can't be driven like one. I'd recommend an Aveo to anyone. They are neat, reliable, and inexpensive to own. BTW, turned down a Nissan Versa - the 2007 Aveo was cheaper to own in the long run as far as maintenance etc.

#53 of 83 My New 2007 Aveo Sedan LT RS.
Jun 27, 2007 (8:23 am)
I just purchased a 2007 Chevrolet GMDAT Aveo LT on May 01 of this year, with the Limited Edition RS package added to it.
It's a misty blue sedan with 5 speed transmission, ABS. The RS package adds ipod nano, 6 speaker premium stereo with steering wheel stereo controls, rear spoiler. Price paid was $17860 CDN with freight and PDI added, taxes additional. The price includes a rebate of $980 for the sunroof.
Do they sell the RS package in the United States?
So far I have almost 4,000km on the car and nothing has gone wrong. I simply love the car. Sure it could use more power on the freeway (sometimes I need to gear down into forth to get going on hills), but the car is very solid and quiet on the freeway, even during high speeds of 150km/hr.
Very very happy so far with the car. I love the newly designed exterior, especially the aggressive front end. The interior looks fantastic - puts the Yaris to shame.

I am VERY intrigued by this. That price is really high,unless the Canadian dollar is VERY strong against the US dollar? I don't know. You paid nearly $18K for a 'LT' version of the Aveo. Did you get a hatchback or the sedan? For all that extra money. Did you get any engine upgrades? Bigger wheels/tires? A sunroof?
Leather seats? How many extra HP does your engine get? We in the US obviously dont have an 'RS' version..but for a spoiler, premium stereo, and remote steering wheel controls, THAT is an RS? That is basically an LT model here, and the doesn't even include any alloy wheels, power windows/locks/theft system/ Is it an 08 or an 07? And is it the hatchback or the sedan? I am VERY curious. Any picture of it?

Pricing is all in Canadian dollars for a fully loaded LT-RS Sedan 2007 or 08 model. You can find out more at www.gm.ca and simply select the Aveo. The price isn't expensive at all considering that I priced out a similarly equipped Toyota Yaris Sedan and it was just under CDN$24,000. The pricing includes the RS package which adds upgraded 15" Hankook tires, 15" alloy wheels, upgraded 6 speaker premium sound system with sound system controls on steering wheel, rear spoiler, sunroof, chrome door handles, ipod nano, and RS badges.

" am VERY intrigued by this. That price is really high,unless the Canadian dollar is VERY strong against the US dollar? I don't know. You paid nearly $18K for a 'LT' version of the Aveo."
The Canadian dollar and American dollar are now the same in value. There is a big controversy going on right now of why Canadian cars are so over-priced. I recently saw some figures that showed the same model Volvo was $7,000 more in Canada. Mercedes Benz was in the news yesterday responding to claims of price fixing in Canada and said that they will not charge more and will adjust any prices that were inflated. This is just the beginning as more people are coming out with complaints. Supposedly, there are many people coming over the U.S. lines to buy cars to bring back to Canada. This used to be in reverse just a few years ago but fell out of favor when the big auto manufactures here in the states said they will not honor Canadian car warranties for American buyers.

Surprised to hear about that on an 07, especially with such low miles. Replacing lower control arms has been an issue for a number of 2004 owners -- I would have figured that with a redesigned suspension, the problem has been corrected by now.
At least you're still under warrantee. Good luck.
