      Where do you buy your parts? Ebay doesnt count

      Trying to update an old thread to make it more current for the 08-10 aveos. So, if you wanted to replace your oil filter or your spark plugs or other maintenance items, where would you go online to order them and what are their part numbers. As title clearly states, you cant say ebay. I will e-slap you if you do.
      This goes for performance parts as well.

      The more info you provide the better. Credit will go where credit is due. Thanks

      Alot of newbs could be helped by you. Think of the children.
      Yeh, im being lazy.

      Also, I dont read all of the forum posts, particulary the tech section. What have been some common problems and fixes for the 08-10s if any?

      Serious thread, serious answers.


      You can not commit crimes in a Aveo. Its just not fast enough.

      For tires I use tirerack.com, and for Chevy parts I always use gmpartsdirect.com because I like OEM. Unless of course its something like basic maintenance stuff. Oil changes and brakes etc.
      Missing our beloved 1st gen Aveos everyday!
      Silence is golden. Duct tape is silver!!
      04 Aveo (mine gone but never forgotten)
      07 Aveo 5 (wifes car gone but never forgotten)
      02 Suburban (Eats gas stations as snacks)
      12 Cruze Eco 6MT
      (46mpg daily? Holy crap!)
      12 Sonic 2LT (Wifeys new wheels)

      Chevoo-1/2 Chevy, 1/2 Daewoo. I mean like WTF?

      Tires: tread depot or tires easy. both are typically much cheaper and more options available in the sizes i want.

      For maintenance I usually end up at advance auto parts, only because i buy it after i tear it apart and check it. And no preordering incase it doesn't need replaced.

      For factory upgrades, gmpartsdirect.


      I usually make my own parts otherwise.

      Cool, thanx for the replies gentlemen
      Have there been any new/common probs with the newer Aveos yet? I mean anything: a tick in the motor, a trim piece on the interior fals off... Anything. And what is the repair that seems to work best. If there's nothing to report so far, then ok.
      Lodge your complaints, your chance to bi*ch freely about your car (to an extent).

      I'd say snapping timing belts on the 1st gen is an issue. Cheapest repair is a salvage yard engine.
