Question about 2006 Chevrolet Aveo

1 Answer

Front end noise

My 2006 Chevy Aveo suddenly started making a high pitch noise while driving at any speed and stops when brakes applied, doesn't make a noise when in reverse. When sitting still car not running you can push on either front tire and hear the noise. Any ideas what can be wrong.

Sounds like rust build up on the rotors,this is a common problem with after market rotors,or it is a squealer tab and they squeal to warn you before damage is done to the rotors when brake pads are 2/3 worn down.have a brake inspection done.

There is a metal tab on some pads that contacts the rotor to make hideous noises telling the driver they need to replace the brake pads. It's in your owner's manual.

Try replacing or resurfacing your rotors and brake hardware. Using brake pads similar to the oem will also help stop any problems.

This is the brakes making the noise, it may be a problem and brakes may have worn down to the warning arm which makes the same noise you are hearing. i would have the brakes checked if its due to a low pad you will do damage to the new rotors.good day.

Breaks have a high pitch squeal when i break ata any speed. got breaks checked out and mechanic saidneverything was fine


A high pitch squeal is typically normal. However I have NEVER liked it.

I would replace your brakes with a higher quality brake pad, and see if you still have the problem.


Your pads can squeal when they are getting low, i would also get a second opinion on the condition of the pads.

Let's stop using it & educate yourself

All vehicles have had check lights for 30
years now,so there is no excuse for not knowing
or driving more than a few days with ANY dash
light on.

You have a System Malfunction

Your not worred about anything
& are close to abusing your car.

You can think all you want but you
need to take action. Your car is very
expensive item that hardly anyone can pay
cash for & you depend on it,so get it
diagnosed & repaired

I was going to suggest the noise may be the
differential in the transaxle.

Part with it for a couplke of days & get all check light
issue solved first.

Weird noises in drive and reverse


The high pitched whine in reverse sounds normal for a honda. Ever honda I have had makes a similar noise while in reverse. The spinning, scraping noise in drive is not normal. You might want to see a mechanic about that.
