Chevrolet Aveo Common Problems & Maintenance Tips
Maybe it is because the Chevrolet Aveo does not enjoy a long history of development, thus it has some defects on design and problems start to pop out after a period of using. Here are the most common problems:
First, engine issue. Chevrolet Aveo vehicle owners complained that this was a serious problem that tortures them a lot. Engine misfiring or backfiring is the usual sign. However, the rattling noises coming from the engine compartment while driving troubled them a lot. Let alone the increasing fuel consumption as well as the always keeping on Check Engine Light. The only solution to this problem is to check your cam gear, oxygen sensor or camshaft seal first.
Second, transmission failure. Drivers described that at first, they could hear abnormal noises such as knocking, whistling or grinding, then the car overheated. Transmission or gears started to slip which cause a loss power when accelerating. The vehicle would also shudder when driving over bumps or rough roads as well as the contaminants found in the fluid and increased stall speed. If you also have this problem, you had better have a look at your torque converter right away.
Horn on the vehicle is designed to give out sound to warn both other drivers and pedestrians, you may not notice it is broken until you have to use it one day. Same goes to mirror switch. It is served for mirror, which can reflect traffic conditions to drivers. For your safety, you should add them to your routine maintenance as well.
