Not bad for the money
By Dave in Canada on


2008 Chevrolet Aveo LT 4dr Sedan (1.6L 4cyl 5M)


We bought this car in June of this year as a commuter. We then used it for a 32 hundred mile trip through Northern Ontario where gas prices average about $1.08 a liter.($4.18 a U S gallon). Cost us $95 to drive from South of Ottawa to Thunder Bay, a distance of over 1100 miles. Had no problems on the semi Alpine grades and never got below 4th gear. Drove 10 hours a day and no back ache, most comfortable seats on the little car market and the air worked well but sucked power from the slightly too small engine. I have had Kia, Toyata, Ford and even a Russian Lada but this is the most comfortable car we have ever owned including our current Oldsmobile. 4000 miles on it in 3 weeks,love it.

Best Features

Sun roof, seats, interior room, trunk, security options, fuel consumption, ride.

Worst Features

Needs at least a 1.8 Litre engine. Transmission needs to be re-geared and a shorter throw shift put in. Radio controls on the steering wheel are redundant on a car this small and are constantly being activated accidentally.
