My mechanic recommended this car, and I'm glad I listened to him. Have done nothing but oil/lube in the 2-1/2 years I've owned it. Not one mechanical problem. Very fun to drive, easy maneuvering, good pick up on the passing gear. Like everyone else says, great interior room. Looks small and squished in from the outside, but when you get inside, you feel like you're in a Suburban. My boyfriend is 6'5" with a very long torso; he ususally has to hunch down in a car. He couldn't believe the headroom in the Aveo. It's a zippy little rollerskate and you can park it anywhere. The gas mileage is terrific.

I purchased the car for work. Drive around 65000 per year. Car has been very dependable. Slight problems. Both front wheel bearings have been replaced. Timing belt broke at 60,000. Chevrolet paid for almost all of the work to be done. Get about 30 mpg with car. Wish the mileage was a little better. Overall very satisfied with car and plan to buy another in 2006.

I paid $7999.02 with taxes, tags, etc a year ago, brand new. Excellent price. I needed a car, and cheap at that. I'm not unhappy with the car or the purchase at all. I put about 17,000 on it delivering pizzas and it performed wonderfully. It's very reliable. Nothing gave out yet, except for the tires. It ate the factory tires bare. New tires had to go on at 21,000 miles. It averaged about 28 MPG delivering pizza, and about 30 to 33 during "normal" driving. The trunk is huge. Easy enough to do my own oil changes and tire rotations. The only mechanic work I've had to hire out is installing the tires on the old rims.

This car is a great car for someone who does lots of driving. I have already put about 17,000 miles on mine in 6 months time with no problems, just general service checks. The driver's conditions could be better. It took a while to get used to foot placement for best comfort. The trunk is extra roomy, as is the interior. I bought the bottom line model for a little over $6000, great buy! My only small complaint is my max MPG has been 35, and that was in excellent conditions. Average is more like 31- 33.

I had been living in cities like New
York where I didn't need a car, and
after moving to a place where I did
need one, I couldn't get my head around
spending so much money for
transportation. So I bought an Aveo,
and I am LOVING it. No, it's not the
best quality of car out there. But
it's 10K. I've put about 4000 miles on
it in 6 weeks (I drive A LOT) and it
always does well.
It does have a strange rattle in the
back now, which I think is somehow
connected to the muffler (according to
my boyfriend) so I'm taking it back to
the dealer in a few days to check it
Great on the highway, great in the
city, great fuel efficiency, fun to
drive, spacious, big trunk, comfy,

I do not understand how people get such
low gas mileage. Mine keeps on going
up. It started as 34 MPG on my first
tank for city/country driving. It is
now 36 to 37 city/country and 41
highway. I have over 6000 miles on
mine now and have been thrilled with
this car. My friend purchased and Echo
and she gets lower gas mileage and has
had her car in the shop 3 times in 4
months. I would recommend an Aveo to
any one. I am near 50 and think this
is the a car I will own for many years.
