2008 Chevrolet Aveo Problems

Water Pump Inspection With Timing Belt Service at 60,000 Miles

Our technicians recommend having the timing belt replaced at 60,000 miles. They also recommend inspecting the water pump for coolant leaks while servicing the timing belt. If the water pump shows signs of leakage it should be replaced at this time.

Speedometer Not Working and/or Code P0722 Stored in PCM

The speedometer may stop functioning with code P0722 stored in the powertrain control module (PCM). This may be caused by a worn speedometer gear due to coolant contamination of the transmission fluid. If contamination is found the radiator is most likely at fault. The transmission should also be thoroughly inspected and repaired or replaced as required.

Noise From Rear Wheel Bearing

One or both rear wheel bearings may develop an abnormal noise and require replacement.

2008 Chevrolet Aveo Bought this car for my wife, 29February2008. She agreed that she wanted this 'Silver Girl'. Just arrived from SE Georgia to Rhode Island, January2015, 58K miles. The car's performance was very impressive, thanks to front wheel drive. It treated us very well. I would recommend this model car to anyone. You are right though, it goes through 50K tires in 25k. I was told, "it'...
I bought 2 late model year 2008 AVEO LS Sedans w/Manual Trans. new. They run great. One has 117K on it now, and the other has 50K. Both cars still get 34 MPG.

Tires last about 30-35K miles but they are cheap. Overa...
