#12 of 70 2009 Chevy Aveo LS Timing Belt Questions/Concerns
Nov 06, 2011 (1:44 pm)
Would like input from any other owners of 2009 Chevy Aveo's, particulary LS manual models in regards to the timing belt or "serpentine belt".
I noticed manual states to change it out at 100,000 miles.
1) Has anyone on here already had to change the belt out yet and if so at how many miles?
2) What name brand or type of belt did you replace it with, style, name, brand, price?
3) Has anyone on here had the timing belt break on them yet and have to be replaced and did it ruin the engine or any other parts or cause any other problems or expensive repairs?
I have not had any problems yet and have over 70,000 miles on mine after almost 3 years driving mostly highway at 55-65 mph and with manual transmission. But it is coming up here in next 12-24 months when I will be approaching 100,000 miles and wanted to be proactive on this issue since I have read on this forum where a lot of 2004-2008 owners seemed to have lot of issues with their timing belts breaking before 50,000 miles or less and then totally ruining their engines severely.

You really probably should have it at least inspected. If the timing belt breaks while you're driving, it will just snap and leave you stranded, and may damage other parts in the process. You WON'T have any problems with it, until it breaks. Any qualified mechanic can look at it and see if it's showing signs of wear. It's one of those maintenance items that just isn't worth skipping.

2009 and newer models have a revise engine in them. Models before 2009 had many problems with timimg belts because the belt ran everything. but the new engine have a service belt. that leaves the timing belt for what it meant to do.

While driving between 55-70 mph into a 20-30 mph wind, I get a high pitch squeal or wind noise and it seems to be coming from either side on the front part of the front doors. Anyone had this problem or know how to solve the problem?? The dealer acts like they have never heard of the problem before. By the way, I am getting between 31-34 miles/gal. depending on how much city driving is involved.

The noise can also come from the front wheel if it is facing the wind. I have the same issue with my 2006.

I didn't suspect the front wheels, Ron. Thanks for letting me know--have you found any solutions?
