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


The Aveo has been a terrifc car so far. I bought it brand new and in the past year it has not had one single problem. GM's rebates and GMAC's low interest finance rates made the car an overall bargain. Compared to the Scion XA and Hyundai Accent, the Aveo felt roomier, more stylish, had more thoughful touches and in the case of the Accent, better built. Chevy deserves credit for marketing this European-style hatch in America, where five-door hatches have been unpopular and dismissed as cheap throw-away cars. For such a tiny vehicle, the room is incredible. Theres plenty of headroom and footroom in the front, although its a bit tight in the back, but thats to be expected. A terrific car

Favorite Features

Styling is quirky and stands out, interior look mimics VW and Mini, lots of room in front, very quiet interior, flip/fold rear seat, very cheap price, ride absorbs bumps very well, peppy engine has no trouble getting to 80mph, dual power outlets, lots of standard features plus cool MP3 Player

Suggested Improvements

Only little things: An armrest would be nice, cruise control wasn't on the option list back in '04, a few little squeaks and rattles, some interior trim is a tad tacky (buts a $9k car, so its very forgivable), and the handling could be MUCH better; this car rides well, but it leans heavy in turns
