Chey Aveo Is A Good Little Car! — I had a 2004 Chevy Aveo for 4 years and it was a neat little car. I would readily get another one if they made it in a convertible. I had the hatchback and when you fold down the rear seat, you can get alot of cargo space. I once carried 2 full-size bicycles in the back (with the front tires removed).

Love My Aveo — I really love this car. It gets great gas milage, makes great u-turns, parks in pretty much anywhere because it's small. I love it because I'm very short and I can control it very well and see over the steering wheel, back window, sides, and all around very easily.

It's A Budget Helper For Bottom Feeders Like Me. — This car rides a little sloppy, but it's not as bad as some cars I've driven like the HHR. The timing belt always goes on these so I have to get that done. The previous owner got lots of scrapes and some dents but I actually like the appearance of the vehicle. It has some nice touches both inside and out. I was actually surprised at how many little things this car has that most people take for granted. Lots of cup holders, a sunglasses case, sunroof, remote entry built into the key, and more. I'm really going to enjoy driving this to its grave and getting the best gas mileage I can in the meantime.

Hip. Fun. Economical. Cargo capacity.

Cons

No Cruise control in 2004. Opt for 2006+. Top Heavy handling in corners.

A Fun Little Econo-box. Cheap, Reliable, And Useful. — Overall, I think the aveo is a nice little car. It's head-on competitor for 2004 was the Toyota Echo, Which in my mind was a little turd visually by comparison. The Aveo provides decent throttle feedback for it's small engine displacement and brings in great fuel economy. The Build quality is above agerage, but the materials are lacking slightly. The dash and interior plastics are similar to other GM's of that era, lots of hard grey plastic. The good news about the interior is that for a stock radio package, the 4 speaker Mp3 CD player puts out a good level of sound quality. The Aveo looks good, well rounded and offers a solid, quiet ride. The only two quabbles I have with the aveo are, handling and one comfort feature. When pushed into a corner, it feels awfully top heavy due to its high ceiling. and the lack of an available cruise control feature in 2004 makes long journey's a bit less comfy. However, the car is USEFUL! the hatch opens to a split folding rear seat, that will tip and flip over to create a massive 42cu ft. of rear cargo capacity. I recently drove my aveo over 500 miles, with a collie dog and two suitcases in the back and a front passenger. The car is also very fun. It is spunky, cute and they come in a variety of great colors.

Pros

Everything, from the headlights to the Exhaust !! it's such an amazing car.

Cons

It's Very light, GM should make it heavier. Not Just GM the Korean models also ( Like Mine ).

25

Fabulous !!!! — Its a really nice car, but its very light. GM Should make it heavier and make the body parts stronger. Its Engine is about 1600 CC's not very powerfull but its great for a car in that size. Its really fun to drive arround because it has a low sound engine even when you're stepping on the accelerator.

Good gas mileage, easy to park

Cons

only room for luggage or passengers, not both

Tiny — Good car to get from A to B, if you don't want anyone else to go with you. Geared too high. Could get better gas mileage if the engine wasn't running 3200 rpm at 75 mph. Really long throw in the manual transmission and not very precise feeling. Not the worst car I've ever seen, but not a recommendation.

...the breaks would lock up

Cons

Worst Car...don't Buy Them — Couldn't stand it. You could switch gears without hitting the breaks. Yeah for a 4 cylender it had some get up and go but those hampsters sucked. The car was reasonable on price. Everytime that I would "play around" in the car I seriously felt like I was going to crack it because it looked like a damn egg!!!

Nice Car For The Price Gas Mileage Could Be Better — the car has a nice torque curve if you drive manual. the handling is spot on. i loved the manual gear box. the hood is very short. the car comes very basic very basic if you go cheap but this is what the car was built for to be cheap.

Great Small Car By haleycars

The Aveo is a good cheap first car. The resale value is very low because they do not make them anymore. If you can find one for cheap, make sure it has low miles on it. It is a good value car. Read More
