2009 Chevrolet Aveo Owner Comments

problem #1

Aveo 4-cyl

  • 0 miles


On my 2009 Chevrolet aveo5: The frame is not properly made (straight). A private repair facility and local dealership have concluded the same, and that it is not repairable. A certain part of the frame near the front end was improperly produced, causing the front end suspension to be unable to perform with reasonable function, and front tires to be unable to be placed on the vehicle properly for suitable control of the vehicle. This causes excessive tire wear, uneven tire wear, and an unreasonably low level of handling control. Beginning mileage 000 because it was made this way, and current mileage is approximately 21500. The vehicle cannot be aligned into any published specifications. There are no published factory specifications for the front-end alignment, which indicates this problem may have been known by the manufacturer since production. The inadequate level of control and excessive amount of uneven tire wear present safety problems in handling, tire failure and possible rollover. This appears to be a consistent problem with the model of the car as a whole, and closer investigation will probably reveal a large number of crashes, injuries, and fatalities sourced directly to improperly placed frame components that are causing the lack of control in combination with tire instability. My 2009 Chevy Aveo is currently in my possession. The problem has been acknowledged and deemed not repairable by both the private repair facility and dealership. Both have also been confirmed it is not possible to align the car within any published specifications. A case is currently open with the manufacturer on my car, and so far, appears to be progressing properly towards resolution. However, I strongly urge investigation to avoid unnecessary crashes, injuries, and fatalities. Incident date is date problem first identified, but again, the car was made this way, and various symptoms have been present for the life of the car.
