Chevrolet Aveo5 Problems

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.

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.

Front Brake Rotor Wear Can Cause Pulsations

Front brake rotors can wear causing a pulsation felt in the brake pedal. Our technicians often recommend replacement of the front rotors and brake pads as the best option to correct this condition.

I purchased my 2011 Chevy Aveo5 with 60,000 on it. Only prob I have had is the air filter was clogged and the cabin filter also. I asked if the 60,000 mile tune up was done and got the run a round. Well it's got 2 years and 40,000 on the certified warrintee so if the timming belt snaps it's on them. I changed the air filter, cabin filter, and spark plugs, WOW. The car woke up and goes good now....
