      Only two recalls in 6 years? that's very good. You should see the list of recalls for CX-7s in the first 3 years they existed... or the current Prius list
      2006 Chevrolet Aveo a.k.a. Holden Barina SOLD
      ​2008 Chevrolet Cobalt SS/TC - neochrome chameleon pearl.

      Re: list of Aveo recalls by model year

      I'd take mine in to the dealership I got it to replace the fuel lines and such, but they send their work to the firestone I work at, so I'd probably end up doing it myself anyways.


      I dont know if this counts as reviving a dead thread, but I'm bored so its getting resurrected anyways
      E-Teeecchhhhhhh!!!!!

      I was told by the Service Mgr at my local dealership that the recalls were VIN# specific to the vehicle.

      Know a person with a ford windstar has been in the shop 5 of the 7 months she has owned it, and she is driving a rental due to the big axel recall making it dangerous to drive.

      I used to be a vehicle test driver for Roush Industries in LB, CA (coolest job I ever had!). We had the Windstar when it was a prototype still, tons of issues with that rear suspension. Ford still sold it without fixing the problem as it did with the early Focus brakes, ignition, fuel line... I would advise her to get ready of it when she can.

      Speaking of recalls, don't you love it when you get a notice for a recall in the mail, and you take it to the dealership, they fix it, but they still keep sending you the same damn recall notice once every month? And you keep calling them to tell them that it was already taken care of, so they check their records and say your right, but you still get the damn notice anyways?
