Pros: What do you like about your 2007 Chevrolet Aveo? Small/easy to park. Great city commuter. Sufficient acceleration. Good for do-it-yourself maintenance.
Cons: How would you improve your 2007 Chevrolet Aveo? Reliability seems to be an issue for mine. Also very noisy (from idling engine noise, to road noise to accelerating). Mileage not great (25mpg average for my 2 hour per day commute).
Repaired under warranty: valve seating defect (new cylinder head), throttle position sensor (new throttle body), timing belt idler bearing (new timing belt idler).
Repaired outside of warranty - heavy braking vibration (new front rotors and pads at 25,000 miles), loud braking noise/vibration (new rear drums, shoes, parking brake balancer at 30,000 miles), radiator fan resistor, trans fluid flush (25,000 miles), lubricate front suspension bushings (popping noise over bumps).
2007 Chevrolet Aveo Review: Ok car - but the reliability has got me down. Have only owned it a year and a half, and the check engine light seems to come on every 6 months to identify a new serious issue - in fact, it came on while driving into work today.
Also mileage could be much better (it is ok on the highway where I get up to 35, but 25 in the city driving to work ... really???)
Doesn't hold its resale value well here, so I am stuck with it.... At least the drivetrain warranty/roadside assistance is there for 5 years.
