problem #5

  • 58,000 miles


My car has had multiple issue within the 8 months is have had it. My car has 68900 miles on it and is a 2011. My car was in the shop for a total of two months because, my breaks stopped working on the interstate, it was running hot, my acceleration ( pickup speed) will not work properly. My car is always drifting to the left when I do drive. My check oil light came on, took it to the dealership and had a full tank of oil. They told me again nothing was wrong. A large amount of liquid comes out my car after parking it, assuming it is from my A/C but its more then usual. My A/C does not get cold all the time, its pretty hot. My steering wheel has been shaking since I purchased it, when I go up hill my car wont go past 40 mph, then when it reaches to 60 mph it wont stop increasing, when I hit my break going down hill the steering wheel shakes, and the car too.the dealership keeps telling me nothing is wrong with my car.

I was driving on a backroad going about 30 mph. My engine shut off causing me to lose my power steering and power brakes. I was able to get the car into a parking lot and pull my emergency brake. I then shut off and restarted my car. It started fine. It is now at a dealership where they can find nothing wrong. Although it is still stalling on them as well.

Nothing but problems with the braking system. It has been in twice to be serviced. We stated that the brakes didn't function correctly and the pedal was spongy and would go all the way to the floor without stopping the vehicle. The 1st time they changed the master cylinder. The second time she went in with same complaint and they looked at it and told her the brakes were working fine. This finally resulted in an accident where she went through an intersection/red light and hit another car, and her air bags deployed.

Aveo 4-cyl

  • 6,700 miles
When turning vehicle all the way to left or right brakes fail to operate correctly. The brake pedal becomes hard and gives you less than 10% braking function. Is not intermittent, it happens every time vehicle is turned completely to left or right and the brake is applied.
