Complaint / review text:
Okay, where should I begin. I purchased this car in 2006 which would only make this car a year old and ever since I purchased this car, it has been awful! First, day I drive it off the lot, keyhole falls in. I take it to dealership. They fix it. A week later, it falls in again. They wanted to charge me $200 to fix it. I said, no way and the car was still under warranty. Then 3 years later, I'm driving on the interstate and luckily as I'm getting off the off ramp, the car dies. I had to pay $200 in towing fees and take out a loan to get the engine replaced, which I got screwed on and paid more than what the car is worth!
Then the battery, which may not be the cars fault, had to be replaced because of some faulty wires to the battery right after I paid $4500 to have the engine and timing belt replaced. Now, my timing belt is messed up again and God knows what else is wrong this car. The 2005 Chevy Aveo is the worst car to own! They need to recall these cars. Oh and don't forget, the gas cap has never fit right and the dealerships are even worse because they treat you like it's your fault that these cars are and then they charge you an arm and a leg to fix things, and they fall apart.
This car has caused me so much grief. GM needs to do something about this. Taxpayers' money bailed them out. What about the people who depend on these cars and who pay for them?
