2007 Chevrolet Aveo 5 Special Value 4dr Hatchback (1.6L 4cyl 5M)
I looked and test drove, Honda Fit, Toyota Scion, Toyota Yaris and Kia Rio... Former Suzuki Grand Vitara Owner (2005 Lease) .... ABSOLUTELY THE BEST DECISION WOULD BE AVEO!!!... I have little to NO engine noise whatsoever, very smooth suspension, it does not have the torsion bar (ind. suspension), lots of cool little "features" that are common on premiums, great handling and response and EXCELLENT fuel mileage and I could compare that to my families Toyota Prius... Just the BEST investment I could have made...
Fuel Mileage, Very Roomy, Seats are very comfotable, QUIET at low and highway speeds, GREAT suspension and handling on curves and straight-aways, great quality in sheet metal (heavy guage), over-all it is simply one of the best decisions you could ever make!
I paid 9,450.00 for my car, to be honest I could say that it needs standard this and that like a MP3/CD player etc. but if you spend the money for other models you will get them, SUB 10K car, it is FLAWLESS!
