Back in 2010, car shut off while accelerating onto freeway. Took into chevy, could not duplicate & didn't fix. Happened 3 more times over 2 years, finally took it in 2012. Dealership shop said it was a faulty oxygen sensor in fuel line. Happened on listed date of incident in rush hour traffic, driving less than 20mph. Vehicle completely shut off. Have not taken it back to be looked at.

I purchased a used 2008 chevy Aveo in June 2011. Nearly one year later I started having issues with it. June 2012 - valve cover gasket was cracked and caused smoking after an oil change. Repaired at dealership. Sept. 9, 2013 - sputtering and stalling. Was told it was due to a hold in the exhaust pipe. Replaced at dealership. Sept. 16, 2013 - still experiencing power issues. Was told I needed new spark plugs and wires. Replaced at dealership. Nov. 7, 2013 - engine light came on. Was told it was a faulty cam sensor. Replaced at dealership. Jan. 23, 2014 - engine light came on. Was told the oxygen sensor had failed. Replaced at dealership. April 20, 2014 - tpms light finally went off after being on for 3 months. Air conditioner stopped working the same day. Was told it was an electrical issue (ac clutch). During the same visit an inspection found the right front top bushing worn, left lower bushing worn, and rear cross member bushing broken. I sent a letter to Chevrolet, expressing my disappointment in the quality of the Aveo. My other chevy vehicles had been great, but this Aveo fell short. After speaking to someone in customer service, who—in response to my statement "individuals who purchase these kinds of economy cars are typically on a budget and can't afford the repairs the Aveo has needed due to its poor quality"—simply told me that it was not her fault that I couldn't afford a better car. I will never buy another chevy again.
Was driving to work and went through a drive through for coffee. Noticed that while idle, my car started to over heat. Continued on to work approx 1 mile down the road. When I got there I opened the hood and found that a hose was no longer connected to the thermostat housing. Then I noticed that the plastic housing itself was cracked in half and hanging off the car. It cost me about $80 for a replacement metal part which I had installed by a friend. This happened during the summer 2010; car had approx 51,000 miles. It is now December 2010, and car has approx 56,00 miles. My check engine light is on and I brought the car to a car part store to have them check the code. Apparently now I have to replace the oxygen sensor, which costs about $150. 00 + labor. I bought this car used in 2007 and still have about 2 years left to pay on it. The warranty is no longer good.

My step daughter bought a brand new Aveo 2009 is has been in for repairs 13 times for the same problem. It will run fine then will not go over 20mph this has happened several times while she is driving on highway at 65 mph has almost caused her and my young granddaughter to be injured. When she starts the car the clock will reset its self to 7:23 no matter what time it is that is usually the first sign it is getting ready to turn into a death trap. O2 sensor has been replaced car is again in shop they are telling her they can't find any problems but think it could be the O2 senser want 600. 00 to replace. Her check engine light has not come on. Car is no longer under warrenty. We have contacted dealership where she bought it no help from them. Contacted chevy asking them to admit it is a lemon and do the right thing no help from them.
