I spent this summer visiting family all
across the US, from Seattle to Chicago
to Denver, so I needed a reliable car,
but I'm a grad student with very little
money. That's why I got a Chevy Aveo
LS. I was often up around 40 mpg on the
freeway, so travel costs were pretty
low. This car has adequate power (even
for crossing the continental divide),
great responsiveness, and plenty of
features to make the ride comfortable
and enjoyable (especially the mp3
player). The interior is very
roomy, though you wouldn't know it from
looking. I put 5000 miles on it in 2
weeks and still wasn't sick of driving it.
very roomy trunk
great fuel efficiency
deceptively spacious interior
one of the front cupholders is too
small. It needs to be large enough to
hold a normal bottle of pop (16 oz or 20
oz.) Also, the front seats need armrests.
