Lets try this again...My daughter just bought a 2008 Aveo. The drivers door will only lock from the outside using the key. Is this a safety device to keep you from locking your keys in or is it a malfunction in the lock? All the other doors lock by pushing the lock button down and shutting the door
I have a 2004 Aveo that does the same thing. It is a safety feature. The driver's side front door has to be closed to lock it. Usually I am getting something out of the back seat, so I just reach and lock the front door manually. Then lock the back door. I guess I just got used to it.

I submitted this problem from the Chevy website. They called me back saying they're not aware of this problem and offered me no assistance. They said that my cars must have been tampered with!! If others are having this problem, please complain to Chevy and do not try and fix it yourself!!!
So how did this all work out for you?
Is the duck tape still holding up well?

This same thing happened to my friend's car a few months ago. She got an estimate or around $200 to repair it. Typical shoddy quality and manufacturer not acknowledging that there is a problem. That's just sad. Makes me real happy that I bought a Toyota Yaris.

This just happened to me too! I brought it to my local mechanic and he fixed it right there on the spot. He just took the panel off, removed the cylinder and rescrewed the bolt. I just got charged for labor. If you know how to remove the panel, it shouldn't be too difficult, but I had no idea and didn't want to mess around with it.

The lock fell into the door on my 2008 today. I need to take the doors off anyways to see what kind of mounting room I have for a better set of speakers.

This happened to me today! 2009 Aveo5, 44000 miles (just out of warranty, of course!)
I'm going to fix it this weekend using these instructions: http://www.ehow.com/how_5137143_remove-door-p...
Hopefully all goes well.
I just wanted to chime in that it's clearly a defect, and it kind of pisses me off. But hey, what do you expect from a Daewo....I mean Chevy

I have had my 2006 Aveo since it was new and when I put my window down while driving, it made a bad sound. When I stopped I had discovered the lock had fallen inside while driving! When I tried to put the window back up, it scraped the now damaged lock and caused it to make the handle stick out. I now have a hole instead of a key hole.:( There is also some rattling on the passenger side door and the handle comes off often where the door's inner parts are loosening. I have no kids or pets to make it hard on the interior or anything either. Other than that though, this little car has been great and easy upkeep for over 6 years now. The gas mileage is not what they advertised originally but it is still pretty good. I can live on one tank a month which is under $40 for now.
