#7 of 16 Warranty
Feb 18, 2008 (7:40 pm)
I had 58,569 miles on this 2004 Aveo when I bought it and it used to be a rental car in its early days. I know the car already has a 5 year, 100,000 mile powertrain warranty, but I have a lot of extra electrical things on this car and it gives me peace of mind to have this warranty. I don't drive that much, though.

I bought a new 07 Aveo LT sedan about a month ago. Having a concern with the warning lights that come on when I first start the car in the morning. It is normal for the lights to come on when the car is first started, but then they should all cut off quickly....unless of course there is a problem. On my Aveo, the "battery" light and the "parking brake" light both come on and STAY on for about 3 minutes or so. This happens every morning. When I go to lunch or head out in the car later on, these 2 lights do not stay on. It is as if they only do this when the car/engine is cold.
Took the car to the Chevy dealer and they stated "could not duplicate" and handed back the keys. The service tech tried to tell me it could just be running a test or something and that was why the lights were staying on. Yeah whatever.
I haven't had any problems with the battery (knock on wood) and also the parking brake has NEVER been engaged....don't understand.
Has anyone else had a problem like this?

As you know the lights are supposed to come on innitially, but not stay on. Don't know what the issue is and haven't read of any posts with similar issues.

Interesting, that sounds like the place to go to avoid the warranty haggle/ripoff. Also one could go to any GM dealer-Buick, Pontiac, GMC, etc., and purchase the warranty there as well.

Does anyone know if the GM extended warranty covers the timing belt replacement at 60000 miles?

No, that is a normal maintenance item like any other brand of car.
#14 of 16 2006 Aveo powertrane warranty
Aug 30, 2010 (3:46 pm)
Does anyone know if the 2006 Aveo powertrane warranty covers the compressor for the air conditioning locking up? It is 5 year/ 60,000 miles and has about 31,000 to date. Compressor locks up, you cannot drive car, because the main belt controls about everything, concerning motor, and belt cannot turn.

where online did you get this warranty?
I have a 2008 Chevy Aveo that I just purchased used. it has 45K miles. I just talked with a 3rd party who offered me 5 yr/100,000 platinum warranty for $2975. Boy am I glad I did not say yes to that after looking on these forums.
I appreciate you letting me know where you found yours.

This is considered required maintenance and must be done prior to hitting 60,000 miles, at your own cost. I have heard of timing belt breaking between the 30,000 miles required inspection and the 59,999 mile replacement point, if you are past 30k miles, I would just get both belts (2) changed, because if the timing belt breaks you are responsible for any damages to your engine at your own cost. It is not expensive to change two belts, and it is much better than having to pay for a new engine out of your own pocket.
