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

Review

We hesitated to purchase a new vehicle since 1981 due to the huge drop in value. The Aveo is a replacement for an ageing Subaru Justy being towed by our motor home. First we were very surprised that the Aveo was not designed to be towed with drive wheels on the ground. A tow dolly fixed the problem. The economy is right on the numbers with our 5 speed manual and keeping the speed under 60 mph. At 75-80 we still average near 30 mpg. Learn to drive the RPMs not the economy marks on the dash and you get reasonable power. Handling is better than our old Metro, not as quick as the old Subaru, not near as fun (but a much better car) than our 1972 Honda 600. So far, good value for the money

Best Features

Interior room and most of all the Price. All in all, great value for the money. I like a 5 speed transmission.

Worst Features

I see the plan is for better fender flares, and the lowpro tires would help. I miss a latch lock on the hatch back interior.
