Poor Man's Mini
By arlcova on
2004 Chevrolet Aveo 4dr Hatchback (1.6L 4cyl 5M)
The hatchback is a great, practical,
"city car" because of its ability to
squeeze into tiny parking spaces, good
gas mileage, good manueverability, and
small turning radius. I am 6'4" and fit
very comfortably (a major reason I
purchased). Lots of cargo space too,
when seats are folded down, and
surprisingly roomy back seats. It's
designed for people on a budget--it's
not sexy, nor does it have the "fun"
feel and amenities of sportier models.
On the other hand, it's reliable basic
transportation that meets or exceeds all
of my expectations for a car in its
class. With GM card rebate and other
incentives I got mine for around $7K.
Can't beat that!
Head and leg room, short length for ease
of parking, small turning radius.
Nothing major: Change odd front driver
door configuration so that key is not
required to lock; Include a CD "fast
forward" function for the stock CD/MP3
