Huge win for car owners! All TSBs to be made public. The Center for Auto Safety just made the NHTSA (US Government) make public the full text of all TSBs from now on. They are the same organization that has petitioned the NHTSA & filed lawsuits to protect car owners over exploding gas tanks & other major safety issues. Whenever you drive in your car, you are safer thanks in part to a lot of work over the years by this small but very effective consumer advocacy group.

Please take a moment & say thank you by donating $5 or whatever you can to the Center for Auto Safety.

2005 Chevrolet Aveo Owner Comments

Aveo 4-cyl

  • 42,100 miles


The timing belt pulleys broke on my 2005 Chevy Aveo at only 42,000 miles ruining the engine. I contacted GM who refused to cover the damage. They stated that I had it towed to a repair shop not a GM dealer. From the complaints I have read on this website, if I had taken it to a dealer, they would not have covered it either. The timing belt is fixed but it is still blowing white smoke out of the exhaust, probably the lousy plasticthermostat housing. There are so many complaints on this vehicle that I believe there should be a recall.
