2009 Chevrolet Aveo5 82,000 mi,
I have had several brake jobs done because of bad pulsations for example I just spent $800 on my brakes new rotors & calipers & clean/adjust rear brakes I have only driven 2000 miles the pulsation is coming back little by little. The repair shop assured me the calipers were the cause (wrong) it has to be the car. This has been the most expensive car I have ever owned. Annually I put anywhere from $800 to $1500 into it in repair issues some reoccurring over & over like electronically controlled thermostat housing. What was Chevrolet thinking what a hunk of junk. There are 82,000 miles on it now. Oh yah it runs nice & shifts great & ok power.
