This is a great car for the money. I own a Honda CRV which gets about only 25mpg. The Aveo gets 33 mpg consistently and has more pep and is easier to manuever. So far no mechanical problems whatsoever and we are very happy with it. It's great both in stop and go traffic and on the long haul rides. I had the oil changed at 3500 miles by the dealer and nothing else had to be done to it. great car.
High gas mileage. Tiny turning radius. Comfy front seats. Squeak when door button remote is closed is a cool sound. Nice sounding stock AM/FM/MP3 setup.
Center console or armrest option. I bought my own from JC Whitney for $39 and it looks and works perfect. Manual left side outside mirror adjuster even though right side is electric.
