2006 Chevrolet Aveo LS 4dr Hatchback (1.6L 4cyl 5M)


Review

Great car, comfortable and attractive. Good visibility for a petite driver. Very disappointed in gas mileage. For the first year I owned it, I comuted 60 miles RT daily, mostly freeway speeds, and never got over 29 mpg. I am a good driver who regularly go 38-40 out of my Saturn SL1, and expected this car to exceed the federal ratings. I was very disappointed to discover that the ratings are a total fairy tales. Best mileage ever was 29, and usually got 25-27.


Best Features

Fit, comfort, overall performance.


Worst Features

Dislike confusing center console shifter. Even after 2 years, I have to look to double check what gear I am in. Also poor gas mileage.

2006 Chevrolet Aveo LS 4dr Sedan (1.6L 4cyl 5M)


Review

I used to drive a 1993 Dodge Intrepid. After 15 years the transmission finally went out! I settled with the Aveo after finding it around the block. I bought it with 49252 miles on it and it's been a blast since! Gets me everywhere, has a lot of get up and go for a little car. Heats and cools fast and taking trips to the coast are fantastic! Handles great! I love driving my car and the head room is incredible. Also I don't know how I did it but I fit a readmill in it and closed the trunk lid! This car hasn't stopped blowing my mind! Awesome choice, great economic value and the price wasnt bad too.


Best Features

The hold button. I live near the mountains so trying to drive in gravel it helps.


Worst Features

Give it a stronger horn! I feel like the road runner from the acme cartoons? meep meep!

2006 Chevrolet Aveo LT 4dr Hatchback (1.6L 4cyl 5M)


Review

I can not believe how much fun it is to drive this "babycar"! My friends call it my Jelly Bean and they are astonished at how much room it has inside, and how much we can haul with just 2 of us. We fold the rear seats down and off to Costo we go! This car has the heart of a Corvette, and the fuel economy of a smart car. It is a treat to drive and own!


Best Features

Roominess, power, and yet economical


Worst Features

Power locks and windows

2006 Chevrolet Aveo LT 4dr Hatchback (1.6L 4cyl 5M)


Review

I bought an Aveo as a commuter car. I have never driven anything but a truck, so downsizing was a little hard to get used to. I have driven this Aveo everyday for the past year and a half without any trouble whatsoever. I change the oil and perform regular maintenance, but this car has been 100% free of trouble. It runs like a top. I get great gas mileage at about 42 MPG.


Best Features

Engine is great; hatchback is handy and hauls a lot of stuff.


Worst Features

I added an armrest between the front bucket seats. The ride is very comfortable.

2006 Chevrolet Aveo LS 4dr Sedan (1.6L 4cyl 5M)


Review

The car has been very reliable! Bought brand new, and now have over 60,000 miles and never a mechanical problem! Many domestic cars seem to have problems by this time.


Best Features

Very good visibility, easy to drive.


Worst Features

Gets blown all over by wind. A car this size should get 40+mpg, not low 30s. Cars this size in Japan regularly get 60mpg. Due to US regulations, car only gets low 30s. Not Chevy's fault. Mechanically excellent, problems I've stated are only nit-picking. Excellent buy for the price!
