Aveo 4-cyl

  • 110,000 miles
2006 Chevy Aveo - issue rear axle beam bushings failed at 65,000 miles. The failure allows the rear axle to have up to an inch of travel left to right. As you go down the road you can feel the back of the car shifting as you hit bumps in the road or simply by taking an exit ramp. I took it back to the dealer and they replaced the axel at half price. Now 2 years later I am having the same issue and have been told I have to replace the axle for the second time. I am working with GM customer service.. I read on line this is a problem for most Aveo owners. These are not old cars and this safety issue failure should be addressed by GM.

Tires never last very long, may get 10,000 miles out of a set since we bought the car. Car has been making alot of noise going over any little bump and we changed the shocks and one was bad, started around 90,000. It is still making some noise and the dealer said that the rear axle bushing is bad and would have to get a new rear axle $$$-$$$$. also the paint along the bottom of both doors on the outside on both sides had been starting to come off.

Aveo 4-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 15,000 miles
- the contact owns a 2006 Chevrolet Aveo with a current and failure mileage of 15,000 miles. The contact was hearing a crunching sound coming from the rear of the vehicle. The contact had the vehicle taken to the dealer, serpentine Chevrolet, several times, but they could not find the cause of the problem. When the contact took the vehicle to the local mechanic they found that the rear axle was bent, which caused the coil spring to rub against the body of the vehicle. Also, the mechanic stated that the bent axle could have happened at the time the vehicle was manufactured. The contact took the vehicle back to the dealer for repair, at which time, it was discovered that the front suspension system was loose as well. The dealer replaced the front sway bar, and the bushing, and tighten all the bolts. When the dealer test drove the vehicle after the repairs they found that the engine cradle needed to be replaced. The consumer stated there was a squeaking noise coming from the front of the vehicle, the sway bar bushings and lower ball joints were replaced. Updated 04/30/07.
