    2008 Aveo; The EGG. I am having the same problems the other owners had. AC/heat only work on high. Tires wearing out. Alignment needed often. Icame to this site to find out about an AC Clutch relay and found these comments, which Described exactly what I have been gong through. Surely Chevy knows about these problems, but I am with the majority/the customers/us,... This is my last one too. Can anyone give me directions to the nearest Toyota dealership?

    We own 2 of these - a 2008 and a 2010. Both of them are the "Aveo 5" model. I bought them for my teenage sons who were about to get their license. Each one was bought a year before they got their license, and they learned to drive in it. During that time I drove the cars (instead of my truck). I got each one for less that $10k with rebates and GM Card points that i had. The 2008 gets about 28 MPG, and the only trouble we've had is that the fan motor on the heat/air only worked on the "high" setting, so they replaced the switch and it works fine. No other problems. I have notice the same thing about the front tires. There are 30k miles on the car now but we're into our second set already. My son drives a lot of miles between Detroit and Nashville to see his girlfriend and he's had no problems. The car "whistles" at about 75MPH. I've thought about trying to deal with that somehow because it's annoying. The 2010 is a nicer car - a little better trim and more solid interior. This one gets about 25MPG and doesn't seem as powerful, which is weird because it's the same engine. Just today the engine light came on and I have to take it in. I've found the dealer and service to be professional. The sales process was easy and low-pressure. I was surprised. These cars are not the best cars on the market, but for the $9,800 I paid for them they are pretty darn good. They are the perfect vehicle for a kid - low cost to operate, decent fuel economy, and cheap parts and tires. The warranty is good for 3 years and they come with OnStar free for a year - something my wife really likes because of their crash-detection. I wouldn't buy one for myself, but their good for new drivers.

    I bought my 2008 Aveo, also known as the POS or Lemon, used at the beginning of this year. I have bought 6 tires (all have been on the car), replace spark plugs and air filter and got the oil changed. The dang thing is still getting 16 miles to the gallon, the last 4 tires put on were brand new all weather that GM put on it and my tire sensor pressure light is still on. The driver side door lock fell into the car. GM fixed it and now my driver side door interior has a gap at the edge because they put it back on wrong. Also after a month of having it the back hatch door handle stopped working. To all the potiental buyers out there.... RUN FOR THE HILLS!!!!! This car isn't worth it. And if you call GM customer care they will only tell you that you need to bring it in to get it tested and that you have to pay for it! I WILL NEVER BUY ANOTHER CHEVY!!!!!!!!!!

    This is the WORST car you can ever buy. I have had nothing but problems out of it! I got the 2008 model brand new and it has been to the shop for repairs 5 times...and I am taking it back to the shop today because it has major electrical problems that the dealership can not figure out how to fix! I am so glad that I bought the warranty, if not I would be out of ALOT of money!

    My family & friends call this the Gumball car because it looks like it came out of a gumball machine. It's a fair assessment too. I haven't had this car 2 years and already it's been in the shop 5 times (4 times more than the car I traded in which was 11 years old). There have been 3 total alignments with new tires(the dealer mechanic swears there is no structural reason for this to be necessary so often), a reprogramming of the computer so the tire pressure light wouldn't be on all of the time, and the latest being the check engine light staying on (don't know the results yet). I purchased this car because it was supposed to be fuel efficient (my old car was better), it was a good price for a small car and made by a brand I believed was trustworthy. My inexpensive car has now cost me well over $4000 in repairs and it's not even paid for. This is overall the absolute worst vehicle I have had the displeasure of owning and I will never buy another chevy because of it. I would not recommend this model to anything short of my worst enemy (and then it's still iffy).
