Good Car — This car handles well in the winter, has great fuel mileage, the standard transmission makes you feel your a race car driver. It is a small car but I am 6' and 250 lbs and it is easy to get in and out of.

Cons

small engine slow when loaded with people and full of gas a natural thing given the size of the car it works best when half a tank and two people driving it

Great Value Wish There Was More Power — I think chevrolet hit a home run to compete against the prius or nissan sentras or scions when building this car which is around 4 thousand cheaper brand new and u can buy an used one for around the same .

Great Commuter Car — Lots of room inside, good fuel economy, right price. Not gonna out run anybody but the ac works and the hatch makes it super easy to load and unload stuff I even hauled a transmission in the back with the rear seats folded.

Good For A First Car And If You're Looking To Save Lots Of Money On Gas. — It's not very fast and gets made fun of a lot. But I don't mind because its great on gas and costs less than $80 to drive 1200 miles back to Texas. Fun - no. No cruise control. But its fun to enjoy being able to spend money on everything else because it only takes $25 to fill a tank that lasts 2 1/2 weeks.

Pile Of Junkk — If you wanted to know what is wrong with GM, this car can explain it all. Thankfully this was a lease! From the first day we got this car it was problem after problem (only later we found out the model was a total lemon). The day we got it out of the dealership we already had brake problems. The car cannot break properly period. You need to have your foot on the completely on the ground to have some breaking power. The inverse is also true as it has absolutely no decent acceleration and absolutely no torque. I've never seen a car get stuck so easily in the snow even with good winter tires on. Everything in this car was a disaster. From the brakes, to the wiper mechanism, to the bearings, to even start the damn car (how the hell does a 4 year old car no longer start during winter - oh yeah...that happened). Air conditioning was barely functionning even though it was at its make. What made our day is the day a crack started forming in the windshield which was clearly a manufacturers defect but GM thought otherwise (are you surprised?). The only good thing about this car was the interior. It was comfy and it looked good....that's it. As usual, GM can do esthetics very well...but mechanically are crap. For a small car, it used more gas than my Caliber!!! After returning the car, it took over 3 months to get everything settled as both dealership and GMAC couldn't do their jobs right to get the right documentation to get through. We needed to get an independant rep that would report to GMAC about the condition of the car. So as you can see, Customer Service sucked ass! So in the end, after being in the garage on average every 3 months (not counting regular maintenance), 7 different recalls, arugueing with the salesman and customer service, you can bet your arse that we are never dealing with GM again when it comes to buying (or leasing if they ever do it again) a vehicle.

SLOW

Pos — the accel is kinda slow compared to my last car. well, like within the first week of owning it, the passenger mirror fell off from wind. interior and exterior are OK at best. but could be MUCH better. it didnt cost me very much at all. and gas is real easy goin, that's pretty much the only reason i got the car... this is definately a fun car at most. but could have a little bit more HP.

The Short Bus — The Short Bus is the most AMAZING car ever, and not only because it is Yellow... But because pretty much nothing ever goes wrong with it! And because if you really need to you can fit 9 people in it...

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Aveo Car — Great car. The build quality is pretty soild and has held up rather strong over the past 4 years. I haven't spent much on the vehicle other than the regular maintainence (ie changes, air filters, brakes) The handling is alright but could use improvement, but it isntmeant to be a race car so i suppose its sufficient.

A Good Commuting Car — This is a cute little car. It gets great gas mileage, however I am afraid of being crushed inside this little beep beep car. The interior is very nice though! The car is alright to drive, i wish it were quicker at getting up to speed, especially on hills and on freeway merges.

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
