Lil Blue Aveo

2006 Chevrolet Aveo LS 4dr Sedan (1.6L 4cyl 5M)
Well I bought this new for my 16 yr old as a first car. I wanted her to have something new, reliable, and warrantied. So far, so good. She has been driving it about 50K miles and 3.5 years with no mechanical issues. She has had some brim and tire issues though. Chevy didn't want to hear anything about it though. After about 16K miles the tires were bald as a babies butt. She purchased some 40K Firestones and they are lasting. I was thinking it was a normal junky chevy front end or junky calipers etc ruining the tires but I guess it was the "no good" stock tires they put on it. Anyway, She has rode this sucker pretty hard in 3.5 years. She has been "ramming like a teenager".
Decent gas mileage maybe 35 mph (Highway), cool interior, roomy interior and reliability overall.
Junk stock tires, small tires, cheap steel rims that bend easy (didn't have room earlier to mention) and Chevy won't replace. Body easily dented
