      Sorry to continue my rant, but even though this car is a Daewoo, myself and my family have now sworn off Chevy for life. Any time I see one of their newer vehicles, it immediately reminds me of the Aveo. That bad!

      cwilliams. 102k miles and you believe some of the stories on here about 60k mile timing belt brakes, and plastic tstat housing failures, etc.

      your past all that. why believe the hype? if all the owners without problems would talk as much as the people with problems then the fact you made it to 102k miles should prove to you otherwise.

      the aveo is built like a "throw away" car 102k out of a $10k means you paid less than $.10 a mile.. ive owned car that were much more money that ive ran away from because of issues with much less miles.

      I've had the timing belt problem, but it was unfortunately caused by myself and a moment of stupidity. I'm sure if I would not have read up on this car that I would have lost the entire engine before I had a chance to do the maintenance, which ultimately cost over $2000 in repairs anyways. Oh well, done with this car anyways

      2007 with 11 000 miles on it... :P

      An ex-coworker put 100 000 miles on his first brand new car in his first year of ownership..... and he was living where he worked (hotel owned by his family) so all that traveling wasn't work related!

      130,000 miles today

      I just reached 130,000 miles on my 2005. I bought it new in March 2005 for $8500.00. I have replaced front wheel bearings twice, done the brakes once, hit a deer (the deer hit me actually), and had the front right control arm replaced. I had the timing belt replaced at 74,000 miles. The car is running great and everything works. It is starting to show signs of wear and I know I need to put some more money in it soon but it has been a great little car for work commutes.

      My 2004 aveo hit 195k miles, still on the original engine and clutch. It's on the fourth timing belt though.

      Holy crap! Mine only has about 110k kilometers right now. I've done bearings, tie rods, brakes, timing belt, water pump, accessory belt, thermostat and of course a few air filters and oil changes over about 60k kilometers.

      My 04 I purchased with the teeth stripped off the timing belt. It bent all 8 exhaust valves. Didn't touch the intakes, don't know how it managed to miss them. Repleaced the valves, the head gasket set, the belt, the tensioner, the idler, the waterpump, the sepentine belt, and had to replace the drivers side inner tie rod because it was bent when it was towed before I bought it. Car had 67,719 on purchase. Registered it the 1st of march and it now has 68,020 Oh, and the radio has no sound coming out of it.

      The aveo I seen with the most miles on it was an 08 with 349,136 I actually called the dealer and it wasn't a typo. That is the miles on it. I copied and pasted the ad below.
