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


Review

Zips around neatly in traffic and has plenty of zip on the interstate. Decent gas mileage [I get about 36 overall]. Easy to enter and exit the vehicle. Seats could use a little more padding but you do sit up nice and straight.


Best Features

I love that you must lock the driverís door with the key---my wife often locks her keys in her car.


Worst Features

Shifting is uncomfortable and not as smooth as I would expect.

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


Review

I was going to wait a month after purchase to rate this car, but I feel I have driven it enough to comment. This vehicle has so far met and surpassed all my expectations. The sheet metal folds around the doors, hood, and hatch are all sealed (Something $34,000+ Dodge Chargers don't even have). The hatch shuts with VW like quality (No slamming necessary). This car is fun to drive and doesn't take long to get up to speed (Once you get going you barely have to give it gas). I'm really surprised by some of the negative comments I have seen regarding this car. It's a much better deal than the Yaris Liftback or Scion Xa, neither of which looks half as good inside or out.


Best Features

Great gas mileage, great price, especially great build quality for price, convient interior layout, excellent interior room for both front and rear passengers and baggage, European exterior styling, actually very fun to drive, good handling, more than adequate performance, nice "little touches."


Worst Features

Wider hatchback opening with lower bottom lip would make loading easier.

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


Review

Great small car. Lots of driver room. Use as a commuter car and love the fuel economy. When comparing price/ comfort/ economy this is a hard car to beat.


Best Features

Fuel economy, get up and go.


Worst Features

Not the most comfortable vehicle when it comes to long hauls(2-3hrs.) Windshield wipers noisy.

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


Review

Well bought this for my 18 year old to get her Drivers Lic. We love driving it and if you are nice you get very good gas mileage. We have gotten 30 in the city. If you are bad and drive it hard you will get 22 - 25 MPG.


Best Features

It's cute and easy to park.


Worst Features

Turbo

Review

For the price what more can you say. Use it until it wears out. Not too sure what the long term reliability will be, only time will tell. A mate of mine put 60, 000 k's on his without any problems. It drives and handles well, the brakes could be better though. All good!


Best Features

Cute little thing, cheap to run (that includes R&M)


Worst Features

Better brakes, engine is a bit old school compared to its competitors
