2007 Chevrolet Aveo 5 Special Value 4dr Hatchback (1.6L 4cyl 5M)
Having owned and driven this car for 2 months, I am impressed with its comfort and driveability in city traffic. We have studded tires where I live and the rough pavement on local freeways is a bit harsh to drive on but all other characteristics are fine. This is my 18th vehicle over 39 years and it delivers everything I thought it would! I bought this car as an inexpensive alternative to a used vehicle for good mileage in city work commutes and it fills the bill perfectly!
Best feature is fuel economy. Keeping the tach between 1500 and 2500 rpms gives me 28-29 city and 41 highway miles. I tend to move through the gears quickly. This is no muscle car so don't try to hotrod it and it will deliver.
Cupholder is rather crude. The shifter can be very vague.
