Review of the 2005 Chevrolet Aveo

  • Refined road manners and a spacious interior make this one of the better subcompacts on the market.

  • Safety
  • Pros

    Low price, nimble handling, ample headroom, logical control layout, available MP3 player, loads of cargo room in hatchback models.

  • Cons

    Not much power, imprecise manual shifter, side airbags not available.

  • What's New for 2005

    Chevrolet fiddles with the trim levels -- last year's base model is now the LS, while last year's LS model is now the LT.

Sturdy small car

Vehicle: 2005 Chevrolet Aveo LT 4dr Hatchback (1.6L 4cyl 5M)

I was recently rear ended in my Aveo and sent forward about 4 feet from a dead stop. although My Aveo has to have the bumper replaced the larger car that hit me is written off.. hood was crumpled. You can see the imprint of his logo in my bumper. I suffered no real injuries just a little stiffness from a whiplash type injury.. I had loved the Aveo before for it's handling, fuel economy and pick up on the highway but now.. am totally impressed by how well it is constructed.

Vehicle: 2005 Chevrolet Aveo LT 4dr Hatchback (1.6L 4cyl 5M)

I have had no problems with my car and I believe that when bought I drove it slower and allowed the engine to break in for the first 800 miles. Also every 3000 miles I have the oil changed. As of today I have no problems it continues to go 65-70mph down 95 as smooth as ever. I'll trade it in next year for a newer Aveo.

I only had my car two year and it broke down on me in the summer and it only had 67,000 miles on it. The thermostat housing melted the auto repair man said that it happened only because of how cheap the car was made and what it was made of. The car being fuel efficient is great but if something happens and it over heats then you need to get a new engine which is worth what the car it worth. I would not recommend this to anyone.
