Kind of a blast from the past.

2009 Chevrolet Aveo 5 LS 4dr Hatchback (1.6L 4cyl 5M)
Review
Some "professional" reviews talk about the 5 speed trans being "jerky." At 13 miles on the clock, it was. By 200 miles, it had smoothed out considerably. It could be a mechanical form of tromp loi, but everything sounds solid about the Aveo. The handling is sensitive but precise enough for me. Mileage has been as advertised. Everyone who has ridden with me comments about the roominess and exelent visibility. With the LS you get the basic car and so is reminisent of Pinto, Vega, Colt, Civic of the past (had 'em all) but somehow a little more evolved. The option packages seem a little lop- sided. Time will tell on reliability, but for now I have no issues and enjoy my new ride every day.
Favorite Features
OnStar (of course), adult sounding horn, visibility, simple lay-out, plenty of interior room, pedals are well placed, quick for an econobox. Redesigned interior won't look as dated as the old circle design. Standard radio is alright but the rear speakers are going to need replacing.
Suggested Improvements
Designing the trunk around the optional 15 inch wheel instead of the emergency spare and then providing the appropriate (14 or 15 inch) tire as a spare would give a little more cargo space and maybe make the car safer by default as so many people don't replace the spare as they should.
