      a friend that flips cars on the side.
      Better than a friend who flips cars on their roofs.

      Sorry.

      Lol, nice.

      I'm sad to report, I no longer own it. The plastic coolant pipe blew apart on me, engine got hot. Oil/coolant started to mix. I did dump a bunch of k-seal in it and get it to stop mix, but anything over 3,000 rpm was a water park under the hood.

      Didn't have time to fix it. And the nuts on the starter for the wires weren't coming off without breaking.

      I now have a 1993 Oldsmobile Cutlass Ciera. 3300V6. 117,000 miles. little crusty around the bottom. Its a winter beater. We will see what next spring aka Tax Season brings me.

      Great buy! Enjoyed reading about your 300+K Aveo.You lucked out finding a 2006 with good maintenance history and the '06 got lucky having you as an knowledgeable car owner who will keep it running. "Special Value" as I understand it, was a model that was not wired for AC. GM also sold an Aveo w/o AC, but was wired for installation after the sale if buyer wanted it. Hope i got it right.
      Good luck!

      oops.....i didn't read that you had bad luck with the '06 until after i posted.... Sorry to hear!

      Here's a Missouri 2005 that is about to enter the 300K Miles Club. However, this '05 has had the engine replaced. Still looks great!
