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


Solid car that achieves a lot for the money you are paying. Interior is a huge shock to GM owners accustomed to horrible interior design and quality. Aveo rivals current GM cars twice the price. Small car but extreme efficient in space especially with the hatchback system. Ride quality, wow it's good, being firm enough but still soft to soak up pothole-ridden streets. You sit up high and so it feels almost like being in a mini-van instead of in a typical bathtub-like experience of typical econoboxes. Power is adequate for single driver but craves more with passengers. With a packed car, plan swift acceleration carefully as it'll struggle. Exterior is a beaut. European traits show.

Best Features

Ride height, feels more substantial than its size suggests. Handling is good on the 2006 model. Tranny is as good as a Toyota (not surprising, since made by same parts supplier). Excellent interior and exterior quality.

Worst Features

Passenger airbag light is blindingly bright at night. Power passenger mirror should've been standard equipment. Another 10hp on tap would make the Aveo a world class econobox leader instead of a typical GM-like follower in this segment.
