2006 Chevrolet Aveo LT 4dr Hatchback (1.6L 4cyl 5M)
Very reliable in the almost 8 months I have owned this car. The interior is far more roomy than one would expect. Not much pickup, but you can't expect that much from a small engine. My gas mileage in the city has been a little disappointing at about 25 or 26, and I drive very conservatively.
Price. Roomy interior.
