Wife was driving down expressway when all of the systems shut off. Just like she had turned the key off. She coasted to the side of the road and after about 30 minutes she restarted the car and drove home. She took the car to the dealership where we purchased it, they checked the car and found nothing wrong.

I was driving on the highway when the engine light came on. The vehicle ran for a few minutes before it started losing power and chugging along on the highway. When I pulled off, I had to flutter on the gas to keep the car from stalling at the stop sign. To make it home on the back roads, I did not stop at stop signs for fear of the car stalling, I had the gas pedal to the floor and it was only going approximately 10 mph. I did not drive it to the dealership, it was towed. They found several engine control module updates. Reflashed ECM code S47490D. Performed campaign 11290 spark plugs and boot. While at dealership, tech found rear shocks were leaking. E5807 - rear shock absorbers replaced, both sides.

Aveo 4-cyl

  • miles
2010 Chevrolet Aveo. Consumer states problem with vehicle not having power several months after the vehicle was purchased, the consumer began experiencing situations where there was absolutely no power. She would be driving down the road, highway or interstate and all of a sudden the vehicle would begin to slow down, and when pressing the accelerator, there was absolutely nothing. She would pull off to the side of the road, turn the vehicle off and back on and it would go again. The dealer performed the PO132 bulletin 100604012. The consumer then took the vehicle to Firestone, because the check engine light illuminated for the second time and she continued to have no power. The consumer then went to another dealer, where they replaced the 02 sensor. Several months later, she received a recall notice regarding an emissions problem which was performed on May 22, 2012. After the recall was performed, the power issue continued.

1st incident--due to the failure of the "clutch master cylinder"(leaking) its hard to make the gear shift(manual).dealer fixed it. 2nd incident--"check engine light "came on (mileage-3909)-- software need update.dealer fixed it. 3rd incident-- rattling noise from the door back of the driver side.(mileage--6858). It was loose window channel. Dealer replace the parts. 4th incident--"check engine light" came on again (mileage-8882).oxygen sensor failured.dealer replaced the parts. 5th incident-- "brake light "come and go(mileage--9449). Due to brake master cylinder leaking and at the same time the dealer also found the clutch master cylinder leaking too, now the same parts failed twice within months.I would like you to look into these incident to verify is this car model have the trend in failure of these parts which really concerned me on safety issues, specially the "clutch master cylinder"(failed twice) and the "brake master cylinder" on a brand new car.
