We traded the piece of junk off!!!! We printed the complaints I found online forums and the 38 complaints off of the National Highway Traffic Safety Admin (filed a complaint as well supplied my VIN to them) took all those complaints that were like our to the dealership and they said "we can't do anything until Chevy/GM issue are repair bulletin. No repairs can be made under warranty work for the Transmission Seepage either due to the wording in the GM Warranty Guide Lines. The wording says a leak is something that has a drip. The tech listed it as seepage so therefore not covered under GM warranty"
So goodbye GM you will never have our business again. We only lost $500 off of our trade. We bought it NEW for $9000 trade in was $8500. When we bought it there was over $3500 in rebates on the Aveo. Now we own a Ford Fiesta 2011--lots up upgrades for only out of pocket cost of $3500. (power everything, satellite radio, spoiler, heated seats and mirrors, ambient lighting (makes the inside pretty colors at night)) It also gets GREAT gas mileage compared to the AVEO--city for the last week has been an average of 33 MPG. Haven't done highway mileage yet but YEAH SO HAPPY--no more breakdown's, no more "gear searching", no more shop days for front end rebuilds! TRADE OFF YOUR AVEO's and stay away from GM/Chevy.

This! this has started happening to my girlfriends 08 aveo. Engine light is for crankshaft sensor. She had her Tranny replaced 8000-10000 miles ago under powertrain.

I'm also having issues with our 2011 automatic Aveo (team canada edition). The best way to describe the issue is that it seems to either start in 3rd gear (absolutely no power from a cold start until about 60km/hr) or it slips from 1st to 3rd (hits ~20km/hour then just completely bogs down till it hits 60km/hr).
We've had it into the shop and the only way the techs could recreate anything like it was to manually activate the hold button. I know 100% for sure that we're not hitting the hold button at any time; the light on the dash is very visible when it is on. Since the vehicle has been returned from the dealership this issue has happened at least 2-3 times a day and I've verified every single time that the HOLD light is not on.
I'd think it was a temperature issue but it doesn't matter if you've been driving for 30seconds or 30 minutes, it's completely intermittent and impossible to recreate. I can start from a deadstop and it will happen, immediately stop and try again then it won't.
To top it off my brand new aveo gets about 25% less gas mileage than my 11 year old Toyata Echo which I'm sure is tied into these transmission issues. Sorry but in no way should the same 400km trip take almost 1/2 tank more gas in my Aveo than my Echo (exact same gas tank size).

We have the exact problem with our '09 Aveo. We bought it for our two college age daughters and I am afraid to let them drive it. Yesterday, it didn't even make it up the block before it started losing power. My daughter stepped harder on the gas, and the rpm's go up, but the car continues to slow down. They it suddenly "catches" and shoots forward. This can happen several times a day for weeks, and then not at all for weeks. It has been to the dealership four times. Twice they kept it for several days. They do not see anything in the codes and say they can not replicate the problem when driving. I've read of others having this problem. What is Chevy going to do about it?

I read on Edmunds their going to discontinue the Aveo (rumor only) if so there's going to be a newer model with a different name but same problems I really don't think theirs much that can be done. For your sake I hope I'm wrong. If I could afford it, I'd trash mine in a New York second. Good Luck!

I just bought a 2011 Aveo Hatchback in April. I couldn't get it out of park a few times, took it to the dealership where they supposedly changed the shifting gears.... that was 2 weeks ago. 2 days ago, it happened again.
I am trying to research to see how many aveo owners are having this issue.
