Chevrolet Aveo 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.
I already got that replaced a year ago and it cost me less than $1,000 to get them both replaced. It is better to get both replaced instead of just the timing belt, because the water pump will eventually go out and it will leave you with enormous costs with the radiator, etc., down the road. It is smart to get them both replaced at or near 60,000 miles. - Visitor

I had the timing belt replace at 57,000 miles, but no one told me about the water pump that they worked together, so now my car is in the shop to replace the water pump and its going to cost me another $1,000.
