I tested a HUGE number of cars before
buying. I found the Aerio peppy (pulls
well in any gear and handles most
hills with cruise on in 5th gear),
eager to go, great confident cornering
(unlike the Vibe/Matrix which scared
my wife and I when we drove it after
testing the Suzuki -- we were never
sure where the Vibe/Matrix was going
to go when going into turns, and they
required constant mid-course
correction). Can't understand Edmund's
review that handling is sloppy on the
Aerio SX! Did the reviewer check the
tires for proper inflation? I think it
deserves another review! Could use a
bit more storage, better cup holders,
but love the rear under-floor storage.
Blend of great handling, very good
power, comfortable and roomy front and
rear seating, quirky but lovable and
More sound deadening in rear.
Better cup holders. Re-contoured door
pockets (a bit too narrow to get hands
down into to dig small items out).
