2005 Chevrolet Aveo LS 4dr Sedan (1.6L 4cyl 5M)


Review

This was my 4th car, and I had a SUV before hand. I wanted something better on gas and found my Aveo. Its been a great car, although my friends give me a hard time about it, I can always remind them that I pay a fraction in gas and car payments that they do. I've had it almost 3 years and have hit 3 deer (ahh life in the country). Glad to report most damage ever done was a dented hood and a cracked head light. By far the best car I have ever owned, its good on mileage and handles great.


Best Features

Its a sharp little car that can fit into tight parking spots and parallel parking is never a worry.

2005 Chevrolet Aveo LT 4dr Sedan (1.6L 4cyl 5M)


Review

This car is overall pretty dependable. I drive it to and from work everyday, regularly change the oil and haven't had any major issues up until now. Last night, was driving and heard a pop. I looked under the hood and it had sprayed coolant all over, starting from the passenger side near the air filter box. Turns out that a lot of Aveo owners have had the same issue. The factory thermostat housing is made of plastic and is held together with glue. Mine basically separated into two pieces right at the gasket. Options are buy an aluminum one for approx. $100.. ($91.78 plus tax from the dealer) or use plastic weld to glue it back together. By the way...parts are only carried by the dealer.


Worst Features

Replace thermostat housing with aluminum instead of factory plastic

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


Review

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.


Best Features

stick shift, can't see having an automatic in a small car


Worst Features

none, my daughter just purchased a 2009 Aveo and has all the toys. Perfect for college.
