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


Review

I've had my Aveo for about two years now. Going on 27k miles and the car responds well. The size of the car is illusory because it's so small when you see it but inside it's quite roomy. For the price and with the price of gas in Los Angeles, it's perfect and really enjoy. The best part, I'll have it paid off within the next three months.


Best Features

Compact size. Speed and performance on highways. Very roomy interior and versatile with rear seat movements.


Worst Features

Bigger tires. More fuel economy. More power when speeding up and torque ability on inclines.

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


Review

Good price and no problems so far with 16,000 on it. Nice looking in and out and more room than expected but could do better on mileage.


Worst Features

Smaller engine? Bigger wheels? Something to improve mileage

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


Review

This car has been everything I could have expected and more. It's getting around 30 mpg and the car is actually fast with the manny tranny. 5th gear is tall and the engine speed is comfortable at 80+mph It handles well despite small tires. With the rear seats down, the cargo area is surprisingly big. Only design issue would be that the rear seats are very close to the back of the car and I think in a rear-end accident rear passengers might be mush. Maybe. I drive the car pretty hard and it still gets 30mpg. The stick on the manual is pretty rubbery, not solid feeling. Don't buy a Civic. I paid less than 9k for my SVM model and had enough left over for 2000 gallons of gas-60k miles!


Best Features

Gas mileage, cargo capacity, perfromance, uses regular unleaded


Worst Features

Make the headlight/parking light one unit. The separated units now look cheap and 80's-ish. Also, move the trunk area back a few inches. It would add cargo space and increase the appearance of rear safety without sacrificing mileage.

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


Review

I'm now rapidly approaching 20k miles. My Aveo continues to run with clockwork reliability. Fuel economy has ranged from a low of 32, to as high as 43 mpg. I'm 6'2" tall, and have no problem finding enough room to stretch out in this car, even on long highway trips. I also love the European urban runabout styling. I have the 5 speed manual in mine, and find the power to be plenty adequate. My only issue has been the tires, which seem to have trouble maintaining balance. Plans are to swap 'em out in the near future. Overall, I would highly recommend buying one. My neighbor was impressed enough to buy one for himself two days after I bought mine. His has also been flawless.


Best Features

Upright seating position, hatchback, can still fit four adults in a pint sized car.


Worst Features

Get rid of these junky tires. Also, cruise control needs to be made standard. The program is already present in the car's ECM, and adding the simple switch would not be an expensive addition to the car's build costs.
