2004 Chevrolet Aveo 4dr Hatchback (1.6L 4cyl 5M)


Review

The small exterior is misleading.
This car has lots of head & leg room,
my 6'6" son has more room than in our
Honda. Even the snall hatch back is
deceptive, it is actually pretty
roomy. It goes pretty good on the
highway, I am just a little nervous to
take it out when winds are really
strong, as the car is so light. We
have been pleasantly surprised!


Best Features

CD/Stereo system is quite good for a small car


Worst Features

Inside lever to pop open the hatch/trunk

2004 Chevrolet Aveo 4dr Hatchback (1.6L 4cyl 5M)


Review

The 2004 Aveo is an amazing little car.
It has all the interior room you could
ask for in this class car. It really
will carry four normal adult humans in
relative comfort. Instruments are well
placed and easy to read. The interior
layout is extremely well thought out.
On the outside, it's small and nimble
enough that you can zip through city
traffic and find almost anyplace to
park. On top of that, it handles the
highway with amazingly refined
manners. It is relatively quiet even
at 75mph. It can move away from a stop
light smartly and it gets to highway
speed in a reasonable amount of time,
but it does need some help in the
passing department. With 103hp, it
takes some planning to pass.


Best Features

I opted for the four speed automatic transmission and the AM-FM-CD with MP3 decoder, all of which have worked flawlessly.


Worst Features

The two things I think would improve this package are a bit more power- 20 to 25 extra horsepower would do it- and to narrow up the gears a bit. Third gear in the automatic is a mild overdrive and it would seem that to make this a 1:1 ratio would help it on the highway.

2004 Chevrolet Aveo Special Value 4dr Sedan (1.6L 4cyl 5M)


Review

I had been living in cities like New
York where I didn't need a car, and
after moving to a place where I did
need one, I couldn't get my head around
spending so much money for
transportation. So I bought an Aveo,
and I am LOVING it. No, it's not the
best quality of car out there. But
it's 10K. I've put about 4000 miles on
it in 6 weeks (I drive A LOT) and it
always does well.

It does have a strange rattle in the
back now, which I think is somehow
connected to the muffler (according to
my boyfriend) so I'm taking it back to
the dealer in a few days to check it
out.

Great on the highway, great in the
city, great fuel efficiency, fun to
drive, spacious, big trunk, comfy,
etc.


Best Features

Gas mileage (38). LOTS of room. I got 4 adults into it recently and it was fine. Not ideal, but fine nonetheless. My boyfriend has loads of head room and he's tall. I like the fact that I'm actually sitting high up (rather than with my legs straight out in front of me like in some lower cars).


Worst Features

No CD player, but I bought an FM transmitter at Wal Mart for $19. Center console. For the price, though, there really isn't anything else I'd add..
