2007 Chevrolet Aveo 5 LS 4dr Hatchback (1.6L 4cyl 5M)

Review

Very light weight, handles very poorly in wind. Gets a nasty screeching noise from doors or mirrors when driving in wind. Front engine crankshaft seal failed yesterday, lost all oil, damaged engine, oil/idiot light did not come on before engine started knocking. GM will only replace damaged parts, which is the crankshaft and bearings. Not pleased with that, should get a fresh engine and waranty. Manual transmission is already showing signs of problems, clunks into gear and sometimes hard to get into first. I am not a kid hot roding it. Its a commuter car, I drive it carefully.

Best Features

Good mileage, fairly peppy with manual transmission.

Worst Features

Realiability. Tune the suspension, dump the rear go cart drum brakes, cure the wind noise issues, a little more power would more than likely help mileage even more.
