2009 Chevrolet Aveo 5 2LT 4dr Hatchback (1.6L 4cyl 5M)


I bought my Aveo5LT in August of '09 after getting a job an hour from home. I drive rural highways nearly all the way. A 15mph wind makes it unnerving and a 25 mph wind makes it downright scary. Being in MN, it's difficult to get around in snow with the small tires and short clearance. I'm averaging 31 mpg on the highway and that's not enough. It's loud, not really well-built and to be honest, it's easy to imagine heavy damage meeting anything larger than a mailbox, should you get in an accident. The oil filters are spendy. Suzuki builds the for Chevrolet. The only saving grace of the Aveo is the room. I'm 6'3" and have no issues with headroom in the car. Value is so-so.

Best Features

Headroom. Good visibility.

Worst Features

Lighten the internal parts of the engine to develop some quicker power. Quiet it down. Have Holden build it instead of Suzuki.
