Loaded 4-Door Sedan LT Automatic Trans
By Mark on
2008 Chevrolet Aveo LT 4dr Sedan (1.6L 4cyl 5M)
With negotiation, rebates and GM card earnings,paid $11,133 for all-option car listing at $17,255. City mileage 26-30mpg;no highway trips yet. I love this little car for what we have been using it for. It is comfortable, and although not a high performer, has plenty of zip for city and highway driving. I am impressed with the build quality,'though carpeting is not dense. Winter mats are $80 for the set, are a custom fit and have good water retention edges. Rear seat a little tight, but rarely used. Mud flaps offer great protection. Modest steering vibration (Engine idle feedback), but no worse than Honda Civic Hybrid. Our other cars are a newer Suburban and Tahoe, Corvette and Ford GT.
Upgraded radio/CD/sound system is great. Leatherette interior is nice;should hold up according to other reviews I've read-would prefer black to the light tan, but not offered. Steering wheel controls nice, but not lit at night. Cost/warranty was unbelievable-couldn't buy a Harley for this price!
Could use a door lock button for the automatic locks-uses door lock stem. When mounting plates, put extra raised self stick bumpers behind plates to keep from rubbing the paint. Black leatherette interior would be a nice option. Rear mud flaps need 1/16 " nylon spacer washers to form fit to fender.
