I was driving and the car slowed down in traffic. It then started to buck then die out! when I started it up again, it started and drove for a short period and died out again in traffic! I have had two or three O2 sensors replaced, even in the first year of ownership, , new off the lot. This vehicle has had the signal switch replaced, the clock went out two years ago, and now it loses power in traffic. This is proving go be a very dangerous vehicle and I hope no one has to die before something is done to remedy the situation!

Aveo 4-cyl

While accelerating from a stop at a traffic light I reached approx 20mph. At this point, the throttle ceased to respond. I had to coast to the side of road. I put the car in park and let it idle. Even in park, the throttle was unresponsive for a while. Finally I was able to give it some gas and it idled up to 2200 RPM and stayed there. It wouldn't back down. I couldn't get the car out of park. After several minutes, I turned the car off, waited a while, turned it back on and it was like nothing happened. Check engine light is on. This same thing happened the following afternoon after having let the car warm up and after having accelerated to 45mph with no issue. I pulled over and put the car in neutral that time. Car has been maintained well, not sure what's going on.

The contact owns a 2010 Chevrolet Aveo. While driving 66 mph, the contact stated the cruise control was activated. While going uphill, the gear moved to second gear and the vehicle suddenly accelerated. The contact had to apply pressure to the brake pedal to lower the speed. The failure occurred four times. The vehicle was taken to the dealer but they could not diagnose the failure. The vehicle was towed to the dealer the last time the contact experienced the failure. The contact stated the oil light had illuminated on the instrument panel. The approximate failure mileage was 3,000.
