If ever there was a post loaded with hyperbole, exaggeration, lies and BS, this certainly sounds like it.
Your car has 43.000 miles on it. By then ANY car will need things like new tires, brakes and wiper blades. It needing things like continual tire balancing and alignment might be due to whomever did the work of tire replacement (and whatever else), probably done by the "independent mechanics" you mentioned.
On a 2009 this car has a five year warranty, so your car is hardly out of warranty at all. If you don't know how to get warranty work done by a dealership, that seems to be your primary problem.
I am probably the last person on earth wanting to be an apologist for GM and their dealerships, who are pros at making excuses and issuing apologies. (Don't take it personally - they try to do that with everyone if they can.) But if you don't know to complain in a way that is effective in getting results, this will happen.
With a posting name like "aveosucks" it suggests you are biased, angry, and don't know how to complain in a way that will get your car repaired under warranty.

I have a 2009 Chevy Aveo as well. It has given me nothing but problems since day one. When I can afford to get rid of it there will never be another GM product in my driveway. Chevy/GM has the worst customer service ever.
The the reason that I am replying to your post is because of the tire alignment at every oil change. I was having to do that and replace back tires often. I had to have the car tires shimmed and Chevy refused to help cover the cost because they told me I may have done something to the car to cause that. The car was still under warranty as well. If you still have the car, and you are still having to re-align, look into having the car shimmed. Just be prepared to pay out of pocket.

I have an Aveo. It is a 2009 and I bought it in 2010. I have a little over 12,000 miles on it. So far it has been a great car. I am not able to drive it everyday. My husband and I drive for a trucking company and we are gone most of the time. We are only home four to five days a month. Anyway the car has been great so far and I love to drive it. It is small and can fit in tight places. However, I want a Jeep Wrangler and I wish the Jeeps got gas mileage like the Aveo's. That would be sooooo fabulous. I want to keep my Aveo and get a 2013 Jeep Wrangler Sport or Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Sport!!!!

my 2009 Aveo ignition will get warm to hot after it has been driven 15 -to 20 miles. It hasn't caused other problems that I can tell but I am worried it will cause a short in the electrical system. Anyone else having this problem?

What do mean by saying the "ignition" gets hot?

after you have driven the car for 15 or 20 minutes and you touch the area around when the key is inserted it is warm to hot to the touch. Even the key itself will feel warm. Any ideas are appreciated.
