What's Not to Like

2007 Chevrolet Aveo LS 4dr Sedan (1.6L 4cyl 5M)
Got tired of commuting in my SUV getting 20mpg in summer and 18 in winter. Bought the Aveo on Edmund's study of lowest vehicle cost per mile. We get 31 to 34 in the city commuting and took one trip of 300 miles one way. 31 into the wind of 20+ mph and 38 coming with the wind. Has plenty of power for most needs. Haven't found anything to complain about. Does what it was made to do. Economy car shoppers beware of the foreign car hype of high gas mileage, we rented several of them before buying and found them to be lacking in mpg from what the manufacturer advertised. This is made by Daewoo plant to Chevy specs, but at least our money stays in the USA. Good job GM.
Nice sound system. Plugin for Ipod and MP3 player. The roomiest small car we test drove. I am 6'1" and have plenty of leg room front and back. Cup holders don't seem to be a problem for us. Good sound insulation. Engine noise is minimal. Road noise almost non-existant.
Disc brakes all around would be a nice feature. Brakes installed seem to do the job however. Maybe 4 wheel disc brakes would be overkill. Wife comments about the "little tires". 14" wheels. Must use key to lock driver's door. All others can be locked by the interior button upon exiting.
