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

problem #3

Jan 072007


  • 41,000 miles


The contact owns a 2005 Chevrolet Aveo. After the vehicle was taken in for service, it began making a lot of noise. The contact returned the vehicle to the dealer, but they could not determine the cause of the failure. However, they discovered a screw glued to the front suspension. The contact took the vehicle to another repair shop and they stated that there was a weak strut mount in the front suspension. The contact continued to take the vehicle back and forth to the dealer because the bolt could have loosened and caused a crash. The dealer finally inspected the vehicle and reordered the parts for the repair. The failure mileage was 41,000. Updated 1/6/09 the consumer was told a main connection point bolt on the crossmember was stripped and very loose. Updated 01/14/09.

Every few thousand miles I have to get my car realigned. This problem is costing me in fees and new tires.

Aveo 4-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 34,505 miles
I bought the 05 Aveo on Nov 15, 2006, I have experienced front end shaking at speeds of 50, the dealership replaced the engine and transmission mounts. The problem is better but still there. Also have had front end noise like creeks over bumps and making turns, the dealership replaced the bushings, the noise went away for a couple of days but came back twice as bad, took the car back to the dealership now am waiting for new bushings to be ordered."with the hopes that it will end the problem" as per service manager.
