2009 Chevrolet Aveo 5 1LT 4dr Hatchback (1.6L 4cyl 5M)
This car hauls me up over a 9000 ft summit at 70 mph, granted it is singing for all its worth but it gets the job done. 32 mpg highway. Handles well. Has some cheap stuff like drink holder and hood release, gas cap and interior plastic parts. It was thousands cheaper than the stripped toyota and we have cruise, tilt power everything and on star. Overall its ok 3 out of 5. Has had some issues with front end and ate a set of tires in 20k miles. It is a inexpensive economy car, not a caddy. If I had the extra 4k I would buy the toyota but then you start getting into a lot more money higher payments etc for ECONOMY.
Room enough for a
6-4 280 pounder.
Gets around in traffic well.
Well a little more power unless it sacrifices economy which it will almost for sure.
