#133 of 176 Chevy Aveo Tire Wear/Strut Mount Issue
Jan 24, 2011 (10:52 am)
I have 20,000 miles on my 2009 Aveo and I have already had to replace the two front tires because they were worn bald on one side only. When I took it to my mechanic, he said there was a problem with the upper strut mounts and that the car would continue to have that problem unless and until I had something done about how loose they were. So, I took it back to the dealer and they said there is nothing wrong with the car. The reason I went through two tire in less than 20,000 miles was because I didn't rotate and get an alignment every 10,000 miles. Are you serious? STAY AWAY FROM THIS CAR!

If you are not satisfied with the diagnosis of the GM Dealer, I would recommend taking your vehicle to a different GM dealer for a second opinion.

I had the EXACT same issue - very disappointing. 20,000 miles, tires were worn on outside. Took to Chevy Dealer under warranty & they told me the tires were over inflated. Steel belts were shot in tires, thumping noise existed when slowly going over bumps or curbs. Put new tires on the car, and they lasted 20,000 miles, too before belts shifted & wore uneavenly. I drive the car with extreme caution by avoiding potholes, etc..., so this is a bad design. Now, I'm told the strut mounts are bad at 60,000 miles & nothing has changed since I took it in at 20,000 miles. Why didnt' they properly diagnose the problem when it was under warranty. Now, they want $650.00, which is ridiculoulsy high when I can get it done for 1/2 the cost at my local mechanic. The dealerships always wonder why they dont' get any business. This is a good example why.

I have a 2008 Aveo sedan that has horrible paint loss and chipping in the entire area at the bottom of both passenger doors. GM service center is telling me this is normal wear and tear and not covered under warrenty. My 2006 Aveo had nothing like this. I also purchased the ResistAll paint protection which appearantly is not even a paint protection, another GM dealer told me it was simply a good wax job. Anyone else having this problem?

I lost practically all of the paint off of my front bumper over the course of the first two years of owning it. I basically divorced myself from the dealership over this car (let the buyer beware, right?!), so I had a local body shop do it. Sad that these issues happen with a car that's so new. Mine has less than 40k on it. My 3 year old could have put finger paint on this that would have lasted longer!

I work at a chevy dealer in CA and I can tell you that the paint has a 5yr 100,000 mile warranty. If the chipping is due to defect and not road hazard damage (ie stones or solvents on the road) it would be covered. In addition to the factory warranty the resisall paint protection you purchased may cover the damage if caused by road hazards. Review your documents on the paint protection and contact them directly. I am not personally familer with the brand resistall, but most of those products are backed by a insurance policy to cover the repair.
In answer to your question "anyone else having this problem", we have sold over 50 of the Aveos and have not had any paint issues.
Hope this helps.

I have a 2004 Aveo and the paint is in near perfect condition except where people have hit the bumper or scratched it in the parking lot, etc.
