problem #2

My sister recently cut her hand when she grabbed the inside door handle on my 2008 Chevrolet Aveo. When we looked closer at the handle, it appears to be separating at the top joined seams. It has a very sharp edge to it similar to the lid of a pull top can. I don't Transport many people so I was not aware of it's condition. I'm glad that the incident did not involve a child because they could have sustained a serious cut. I have not had any wrecks or damage to my car to result in the door handle separating. I fell this is a serious enough situation to warrant reporting. I've also had problems with the airbag light consistently malfunctioning. It's been supposedly fixed twice..but it still malfunctions.

About 300 hundred miles ago now 2008 Chevy Aveo lt with 1740 miles as of now and still driving. My wife and I feeling a vibrations on the car every time we stop at the traffic light. When car shift to drive it vibrate a whole lots for passenger to notice and I took the car twice to dealer and they said the car is fine with reading from computer. I took it second time and they check the motor mounts and transmission mounts ( visual inspections I think) but they said everything is fine but even the service manager says its normal for vibrations but not so when I was sitting in the back seat where I could still feel the vibrations. I like to know if the is a lemon or a defective part or what" please let me know what you think and who to contact" I was told to come at the dealer on August 4, 2008 because a GM tech person was coming to answer questions concerning cars. Manager and tech from GM did not show up so im left with a vibrations on the car that im paying unhappily. Please help. Have a nice day carmen
