I've owned the car exactly 4 years and like it. Aveo LT was sold out, so I had after-factory door locks, car alarm, & windows put onto car. The car runs great, is fairly low maintenance. I've not had my key stick, or any of the other issues that I see written about. I know when things go wrong, we tend to be more vocal about it, but I wanted you to know that others DO mostly like their Aveos.
This car handled well, had regular maintenance as recommended, & is lasting wonderfully. After 3 1/2 years, I needed new tires, front end alignment over the normal maint.
Drink holder shouldn't be over ashtray, junk holder. Too easy to spill on something. Gas mileage wasn't as good as it was supposed to be. I did get 27-28 mpg though, with in-city freeway driving.
