My 2009 has about 8000 miles on it with no problems. This could be as simple as a loose battery cable. But since you say the battery "will not hold a charge", it might also be that you have left a door or a light on that is draining the battery.
I can understand your frustration, but don't condemn the car prematurely.
OTOH, DO "hold the dealer's feet to the fire" and have them diagnose and correct the problem.

There is one other possibility you might check. If you use a key chain or key case that dangles from the ignition switch, that can cause the switch to go to the off position - hence, the "stall." It is best to use the key only in the ignition switch.

I can understand your frustration with this being a new vehicle and all, but I am glad to see that you are planning to work with the dealership to resolve the concern. Please feel free to keep us updated regarding the fix. Thank you.
Tricia, GM Customer Service.

You are totally wrong. I traded it in on a Hundai Accent. I refuse to deal with cars that have problems which can't be easily identified. I need reliable transportation. I will never buy an Aveo again.

James the mechanic at the Dealership frowned when we picked up the car. They replaced the battery. James mentioned that if there is a ground wire problem they can not find it and if it happens again have it towed in again and they will look again. He said sometimes Electrical problems are illusive and take a few tries to fix. ....Not Good for me good for you for having an Aveo that you can trust.... as for my Aveo ... I don't trust it.

BWolfe thanks for the suggestion. This Aveo was purchased for a Flower delivery business. The actual flimsy white tag with the Vehicles vin# is actually the only key available for this vehicle, I locked up the spare- we have yet to even put it on a key chain and this vehicle which has been driven 3 times, again it only has or had 254 miles on it when we experienced stalling problems and this now battery that lost its charge.

First time it was taken from the Dealership at 8pm and at a stop light it stalled. Second time a trip to the Flower shop from its stored location and it stalled third time a trip to Home depot and it stalled I drove it that last time and it was in the middle of the day, the trip was quick, I did not even turn on the radio, needed no exterior lights and when I returned it was parked. I dropped off a set of keys for someone and did not load a thing into this car. So how someone could leave a "Light" on defense totally blows. A car should not lose its charge. Somethings amiss. The stalls by the way twice were
when the car was at a stop light while idling. Once just after starting the car it started idled stopped. The fourth time we attempted to drive this vehicle dead battery that the tow driver (we called triple a forgetting about the warranty) Triple A said this battery wont hold its charge. So was of right now hate to say it but there seems to be an Ground wire problem with this Aveo.

we have a 2009 pontiac g3(same car as aveo5) with exactly the same problem. Finally took it into dealer having 18,000 miles. They didn't have a fix for it, they reflashed the computer and said we'll see if it's fixed. Needless to say it's not fixed. we probably have to wait until it doesn't start at all and need a tow. Otherwise car is good.
