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.

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.

The Best Little Reservation Pony Ever. — My Blue Bubble is awesome. best vehicle I've ever owned. I don't try to neglect her, it just happens. I live on a dusty, rutted up reservation. Driven lots of miles on a little gas at usually high rates of speed. No repairs. Yes, I did say No repairs. They're great rides!

Practical Small Family Transportation — Fuel economy is very good (I averaged 30/35 city/hwy with the MT in summer temps), visibility is very good, parking is a breeze, the interior is deceptively roomy, and the overall ride comfort isn't bad. My wife and I use the Aveo primarily as a daily driver to and from work, as well as as our primary trip vehicle for weekend drives, day trips, and vacations. We took ours from MI to NC for our annual vacation last year, and aside from the lack of cruise control, the trip was highly enjoyable. The Aveo handles high speeds and interstate driving very well, and I have registered 35-36 mpg with the MT even when averaging 70-80 mph. The cargo capacity is excellent if the rear seat is not occupied, and the overall comfort of the seats and interior is adequate. We have owned ours for two years and have experienced no mechanical issues to date. However, if you're looking for performance, avoid this car. Acceleration is just adequate with a driver and one passenger, while the car noticeably struggles when hauling 4 or 5 adults. Handling is sub-par, particularly around curves. There are many annoying squeaks and rattles stemming from backseat interior door components, and the lack of standard power accessories makes the car feel spartan. In summary - The Aveo LS Hatchback provides economical, practical transportation as a daily driver or primary vehicle for individuals or couples. I would not recommend this for anyone who enjoys spirited driving, requires standard power accessories, or needs to often transport more than two adults.

Great 05 Chev Aveo — I brought this 05' Chev Aveo in 06'. I must say that I love it. I drive in back and forth from New Jersey to Florida and i must say it gets great gas mileage. It also handles the road well. The onlt thing i replaced so far was the tires but other then that it is a great car. I would recommend this car to anyone who need a good car for not a lot of money.

Pros

Good gas mileage - 40+ mpg in summertime for me

Cons

Repairs are more often than on other cars and sometimes stuff just breaks with no apparent cause.

2005 Aveo — Car is alright and gas mileage is good. Other than that I must say it is a job to keep it out of the garage. Most of it is the usual stuff but more often than you would prefer. Can't say that it is a total loss but sure would not buy it again. I know of a few people that had this car (Aveo) and traded or sold it for a more reliable one. I prefer to keep it till it costs more to repair than the cost of a new car. The car is known to have a few problems and is not really reliable. Needs a garage visit every 2 months or so if you want to keep it running tip top. Overall it gets me to work and I intend to keep it till it drops! May 2012: I have almost 185k kilometers on it and it is still going - recently put in new back brakes and a strut and tie rod end on the front. It will last another few years.

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.

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
