2005 Chevrolet Aveo LS 4dr Hatchback (1.6L 4cyl 5M)
I have owned the Aveo for several months. My city gasoline consumption is 29.3mpg. No mechanical problems so far. I paid a bit over $11K. The radio/CD is OK, but not great. Handling is quick at less than 45mph but a touch vague at freeway speeds. I purchased this auto because it was inexpensive. I also looked at the VW Golf Diesel and Honda Civic Hybrid. The Aveo provides many of the same features for $10K less...and that, in my mind, makes up for the lower fuel economy.
Spacious interior, Hatchback, Low cost
Better speakers for radio. Improved suspension components.
