2005 Chevrolet Aveo Special Value 4dr Hatchback (1.6L 4cyl 5M)
I use my cute little Aveo primarily to commute to work. After all of the various discounts, I paid $8,300 for the special value model. I enjoy knowing that I made a smart decision. I get about 28mpg in the city and 33 on the highway. This little car has a lot of useful room. The rear seat has a special way of folding down to make the back cargo area completely flat and 100% usable. The only thing I really miss is air conditioning. If you want it, you're going to end up paying a lot more. I also wish it had a CD player standard.
Gas mileage. Usable space. Cute design. Low price!
