Starters are generally much better built than they used to be (20-30 years ago). And they're not a known weak point on the Aveo. I'm only aware of one hard-hard-hard-core hypermiler wearing out a modern starter, and he had an automatic transmission.
With the manual transmission, you'll be able to restart the engine much of the time with the clutch, not the key.
