2004 Chevrolet Aveo Hatchback 4dr Hatchback (1.6L 4cyl 5M)


Review

The small exterior is misleading.
This car has lots of head & leg room,
my 6'6" son has more room than in our
Honda. Even the snall hatch back is
deceptive, it is actually pretty
roomy. It goes pretty good on the
highway, I am just a little nervous to
take it out when winds are really
strong, as the car is so light. We
have been pleasantly surprised!


Best Features

CD/Stereo system is quite good for a small car


Worst Features

Inside lever to pop open the hatch/trunk

Review

The 2004 Aveo is an amazing little car.
It has all the interior room you could
ask for in this class car. It really
will carry four normal adult humans in
relative comfort. Instruments are well
placed and easy to read. The interior
layout is extremely well thought out.
On the outside, it's small and nimble
enough that you can zip through city
traffic and find almost anyplace to
park. On top of that, it handles the
highway with amazingly refined
manners. It is relatively quiet even
at 75mph. It can move away from a stop
light smartly and it gets to highway
speed in a reasonable amount of time,
but it does need some help in the
passing department. With 103hp, it
takes some planning to pass.


Best Features

I opted for the four speed automatic transmission and the AM-FM-CD with MP3 decoder, all of which have worked flawlessly.


Worst Features

The two things I think would improve this package are a bit more power- 20 to 25 extra horsepower would do it- and to narrow up the gears a bit. Third gear in the automatic is a mild overdrive and it would seem that to make this a 1:1 ratio would help it on the highway.

Review

Surprisingly roomy, my wife and I are
both over 6 ft, and we both fit
comfortably with both kids in the car
also. I'm still waiting to get more
than 32 or 33 MPG, although that may
not happen as I always have a full car
with either my family, or my carpool
buddies. Also, I regularly drive
elevated freeway speeds (80-90MPH) when
en route to my full time job, or am
otherwise driving around town at a fast
clip as I work as a pizza delivery guy
as my second job. Particularly
thoughtful touches abound with the
sunglasses holder and the I.D. holder.
I had an aftermarket body kit installed
at the dealership that obviously makes
the car look much faster than it really
is. Ha Ha!


Best Features

the most comfortable seats I've ever had in an economy car. also the quietest, smoothest, and most refined economy car I've ever had. very flexible engine


Worst Features

cruise control is a glaring omission, as is a more than a laughable attempt at a center console

Review

Cute car, great handling, fun to drive!
Super price - mine is hatchback, red
color which reminds me of a ladybug.
Haven't had it long (one week)but am
planning on a 600 mile trip soon so I
will reevaluate how it performs after
that. There is quite a bit of plastic
in the interior but that's part of the
cheaper price of the car-it is pleasing
to the eye. Can't evaluate gas economy
since I haven't filled it up yet.


Best Features

I like the body styling and the cute little spoiler on the hatchback. Also appreciate the DRLights.


Worst Features

Need a center console and more compartments for articles.
