2008 Chevrolet Aveo 5 Special Value 4dr Hatchback (1.6L 4cyl 5M)


I have had this car since 4/08. A few comments: The bad- she hates the snow here in Chicago. Handles well driving, but be prepared to shovel or use traction pads when parallel parking with over 5 inches on the ground. The smaller tires, very low power+ low to the ground= tough parking. Other issues: small tires treads will pick up every stone in the road. You will hear them when the windows are down- annoying. Good: only maintenance done outside of oil was a brake job around 14K miles. Rotors rusted. Only drive about 15 miles a day, but lots of stop and go. Overall, not a bad car. Wanted cheap car, got one that works. Bought an aftermarket radio and speakers, so all is well with the commute.

Best Features

Lumbar support, Sun glass holder, easy street parking, cargo space. Decent interior.

Worst Features

Too little power for too much gas. "Almost" on both, but Chevy fell short here. Car needs more HP and better gas mileage to improve. In total, I have no regrets with this purchase.
