You'll an stereo install kit. I comes with the surround for the new stereo to fit into, and that will fit into the space for the stereo in the dash, this kit will also have a connector to wire the new stereo to, and plug into the stock stereo plugs.
Should be a blue wire with a white stripe in the plug that goes into your unit if its missing take the harness to bestbuy or an audio shop and they can prolly stick a wire in the empty spot. hope this helps you.

Automobiles use Direct Current "DC" and is very dependant on a good ground. The black wire from your stereo should be the ground and needs to be attached to the chassis "metal part of the car". You can use an ohm meter to check for grounds by placing one lead on your door hinge (unpainted) and the other to where you are connecting your ground from the stereo. Be sure that this wire does not have voltage on it with the key off, on acc, or in the on position or you could blow a fuse or damage your equipment. Besides that make sure that you have 12v constant to the (usually red wire) and switched (voltage only with the key on) to (usually the yellow wire). Hope that helps. It's mostly about the ground.
You should check with Car Toys or Best Buy but you will probably need an adaptor and a wiring harness. If your doing it yourself your going to need to know how to get the stock radio out and the wiring diagram for the Aveo. Sometimes you can find the wiring diagram on Google by searching for it but usually finding diagrams for 2008 vehicles takes a year or two before it becomes available.
If your CD player has a tuner in it already you shouldn't need one. If it doesn't have one, that presents some other options.
