Vehicle
2007 Chevrolet Aveo 5 LS 4dr Hatchback (1.6L 4cyl 5M)
Review
Reliable (inc. all the way down to - 10F no issue). Not sporty (understeer), or sexy, but a very functional commuter. Inexpensive/easy to maintain, great on gas (35mpg at 80mph), BUT at 30 000, was getting 'bucking' cold (about 40F outside) when slowing at stop signs, and bucking when cold at 30mph (with flashing check engine light) - deayler confirmed valve issue (to be fixed under warranty). Synthetic oil since I got it didn't save it from this defect. Also had belt tensionner issues and rotor vibration (turning the rotors fixed that). Otherwise, I do like the car, and the service is friendly/trustworthy (they are throwing in a new Timing belt install)
Favorite Features
Solidly built. good brakes. Very solid auto transmission (Aisin Warner), great city mileage, good storage. Great features (cabin air filter, sunglass holder, mp3 player). with winter tires, handles great in the snow.
Suggested Improvements
Highway mileage was improved in 2009 by vvt - needed this sooner. better noise deadening. better front speakers. fix understeer. thankfully the valve issue was addressed fully by 2008. a turbo version would be nice
