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


The cabin is well thought out, and is roomy for an econobox, the controls easy to read and use, but pedals are too close to each other, and too small. Seats are roomy and have good side bolster, and are also height adjustable. The rear seats are high and ok for kids. Performance is what can be expected for 103 horses, but more than adequate for on ramps to the interstate. The trunk is plenty roomy and rear seats fold down. Style wise...well who cares this car is for commuting, and economy which in the city is about 30, and 40 mpg on the hwy. The Aveo is an economy car, and doesn’t pretend to be anything but. Smart car, great in traffic, and at the gas pump. I got a new 04 with air, for $8300.

Best Features

The price point for this car can hang with anything out there. The fit and finish is fine for a car of this price. The engine has a good track record, and is easy to service, with a surprising amount room under the hood. The Aveo is more economical in the long run than the hybrids and their $20k cost.

Worst Features

The most glaring shortcomings of the Aveo, is the handling, which is somewhat sloppy. Also the car pedals are too high, or the dash panels are situated too low. And finally the am/fm radio needs a DX control for pulling in distant stations, the AM section is quite weak for talk junkies like myself.
