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.

Owner for 2 years, 0 months

Miles Driven per Year:4,000

Pros: Great gas mileage, nice body, handles road great

Cons: bad factory tires

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.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Interior Space, Fuel Economy, Visibility, Parking, Reliability

Cons: Interior Noise (Squeaks, rattles), lack of accessories (no PW, PL, PM, PS, CC), Poor overall handling.

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.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

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.

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
