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.

2006 Chevrolet Aveo Owner Comments

problem #1

Oct 012006

Aveo 4-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 15,000 miles


Currently own a 2006 Chevy Aveo hatchback, with just over 20,000 miles. Purchased new. Have been noticing within the last month that occasionally when attempting to start vehicle, I get a buzzing noise, and engine will not start. Must turn key again to get vehicle started. Seems to be a defective starter or ignition switch. Will be getting this checked asap. ***have also noticed this problem once in my mom's Aveo sedan, also purchased new in 2006, currently with less than 10,000 miles.
