2009 Chevrolet Aveo 5 LS 4dr Hatchback (1.6L 4cyl 5M)
We were aiming for an econo-box that wouldn't need a major overhaul in the next 3 years(i.e. battery bank)... we're pretty satisfied with what we have here. Fit & finish of the car seems quite nice. The only noise leaks are through the underbody panels because of no insulation/padding. Last 3-5 tanks are in the 35mpg area and we live in & around some hilly terrain... was in the 32mpg area until we changed over to a full synthetic. Currently @ 3000 miles on the car. Onstar is a feature that can spoil you... except for the knowing that they can shut your car off if/when they feel like it.
Small; it seems to handle(cornering & maneuvering) quite well; headphone/MP3 input jack; extra 12V port; twice-folding rear seats; decent get-up-&-go when you get above 3500 rpms; roomy; the mpg potential with mods ^_^
Make with the US style of wiper lever logic and headlight logic already... this thing is backwards compared to any US-made/designed auto. Stop de-tuning our freaking cars!! Throw "emissions" crap out the window, just give us really high mileage efficiency, the rest falls into place then, DUH.
