The ride in this car is surprisingly comfortable for around town. My son (Saturn owner) says that you can't feel the speed because you are sitting higher and the visibility is good. The acceleration is acceptable for the little 1.6 liter engine. The gas mileage seems to be improving from the start at 19 mpg to now 22 mpg although I only have a little over 1000 miles on her. The shape and color (yellow) grows on you and is easier to spot in the parking lot. I find that I can fit at least the same amount of sundries in my Aveo as I had in my 'Oldsmobile Intrigue' with the exception of the Oldmobile could seat 5. Yes I am happy with my choice of the Chevy Aveo and would recommend this car.
The split back seats option I find very useful. The fact that the clock does nothing else but tell time is appealing. The radio is decent and not too complicated to operate. Overall, I think my money was well spent.
All Aveo's should be equipt with electric windows and auto push button door locks.
