      How long will my Aveo last me?

      I just hit 100K on my 06 Aveo sedan, and I am getting worried it is reaching the end of it's life =/
      I do not know for sure, just a gut feeling. Does anyone the life expectancy of an Aveo?

      See: Highest Mileage Aveo. (most miles / km)

      if it has been maintained, it will last you another 100k easy, things are going to go out of course, but they shouldnt if it has been taken care of, not like a new engine is expensive or anything :P

      I haven't changed my timing belt yet due to cash shortages =/ I'm a tad nervous to drive it at the moment.

      damn, your at 100k on the first belt? That should be a good indication that the car will last a while :P , the timing belt has almost doubled it's life :P

      i would get that changed next before anything else though

      It will last as long as you are willing to keep and fix it.

      I would check your timing belt. You are not the first I have heard to wait that long on a timing belt. But you should see if it is OK. As you will probably be willing to get rid of it if the engine craps out but $300-500 in maintenance To prevent it is cheaper than a set of tires.

      Another vote for the timing belt, I'm actually about to do mine. Maybe your gut feeling is telling you to do it. :P

      How have your 100k been? If they haven't been too problematic, and you continue to maintain it; I don't see why you should be too concerned?

      Any rust?

      I got the car at about 85K and haven't had any problems with it it, been very pleased with it. And no, I have not seen any rust on it.

      I'm sure you've beaten it. I thought it was in the 90k's? Someone refresh my memory.


      I leased Pontiac Wave from September 2006 to August 2011.
