I apologize for the issues you have had with your vehicle. Have you had the present concerns looked at by the dealership? Or do the concerns still persist? Thank you,

2008 has a 100,000 mile warranty.
Blown head gaskets are not a wear and tear item.
A blown radiator hose can cause overheating and a blown head gasket due to
warping the head.
It is Chevies problem not yours.

Most likely your catalytic converter was going bad; they fail all the time on Aveos.

I have probably shelled out 10K so far on my husband's '04 Chevy Aveo. He has a talent for picking lemons. We are now averaging about $500 in repairs per month. The timing belt broke at 51K and destroyed the engine, which I replaced, since we are paying for two more years on this car, but that was a mistake. Now, the catalytic converter is going bad and the car is not even remotely worth the cost to fix it. It is not even worth keeping around for occasional use.
This car has been a strain on our marriage, and needless to say, I will never buy another Chevy as long as I live. "Disposable" is a kind word for this car.

How long has this concern been present? Have you taken it to another dealership for a second opinion? Has a service tech rode with you and experienced the concern as well? Thank you,

#60 of 307 2005 Aveo problems
Oct 06, 2010 (10:25 am)
48,000 miles. Car overheated and I blew head gasket. I replaced and at same time replaced water pump, timing belt, serpentine belt, etc. When all back together it started right up and seemed to run good. Then, eventho temp gauge showed normal, it appeared engine was overheating and check oil light came on. Since I had just changed the oil, put in new coolant, etc. I was surprised. Now, cannot find out why overheating, but sure causes clattering of valves (I guess). When cool, all is fine.

With the valves clattering, the oil MUST be low. Could be that when you took everything apart and put it back together, oil that normally sits in other places than the oil pan waiting for you to check the level isn't there, if you know what I mean. Since you've run it, check the oil level now and I wouldn't be surprised if it's low
