I just bought a new aveo a week ago and it already leak oil onto the ground. It appears to have lost a half quart in the last week. What could be causing this?

Hard to say without actually seeing the car. It could be anything. If you're mechanically inclined, open up the hood and look for the leak. Also look under the car for the leak. In any case you should take it to the dealer and have them fix it under warranty.

being so new, could be something very simple like stripped or loose oil drain or even loose oil filter. but yeah, take back to dealer, let them figure it out being that its still under warranty.

keep us up to date on how it goes, love to hear what was wrong.

It turns out the the oil galley plug was cracked. This does not seem to be a major problem with this car, as the technician checked and said that this problem has yet to be reported to GM with other Aveos. All in all, this is a nice little car.
