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


Review

Surprisingly roomy, my wife and I are
both over 6 ft, and we both fit
comfortably with both kids in the car
also. I'm still waiting to get more
than 32 or 33 MPG, although that may
not happen as I always have a full car
with either my family, or my carpool
buddies. Also, I regularly drive
elevated freeway speeds (80-90MPH) when
en route to my full time job, or am
otherwise driving around town at a fast
clip as I work as a pizza delivery guy
as my second job. Particularly
thoughtful touches abound with the
sunglasses holder and the I.D. holder.
I had an aftermarket body kit installed
at the dealership that obviously makes
the car look much faster than it really
is. Ha Ha!


Best Features

the most comfortable seats I've ever had in an economy car. also the quietest, smoothest, and most refined economy car I've ever had. very flexible engine


Worst Features

cruise control is a glaring omission, as is a more than a laughable attempt at a center console

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


Review

I bought a small car because of the
gas mileage ratings. This car is fun
to drive as well.


Best Features

The gas mileage: 28 mpg in town; 36- 41 mpg highway!


Worst Features

For the 100-mile or 200-mile one-way trip, cruise control would be desirable.

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


Review

Cute car, great handling, fun to drive!
Super price - mine is hatchback, red
color which reminds me of a ladybug.
Haven't had it long (one week)but am
planning on a 600 mile trip soon so I
will reevaluate how it performs after
that. There is quite a bit of plastic
in the interior but that's part of the
cheaper price of the car-it is pleasing
to the eye. Can't evaluate gas economy
since I haven't filled it up yet.


Best Features

I like the body styling and the cute little spoiler on the hatchback. Also appreciate the DRLights.


Worst Features

Need a center console and more compartments for articles.

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


Review

This car is a peppy little car. The
price is right. That's the only
positive things about this car.
Alternative to a used car???? It like
driving a tin can. Cheaply made
somewhare in Korea. That should be
you first clue not to buy this car. I
should have listened to my first
instincts. "PASS THIS ONE UP." The
placement of the cup holder is
dangerous. It can stop the car from
going into park when a cup is in right
holder. It caused mine to fly out of
gear and through a garage door. Feels
like it could turn over easily due to
high center of gravity. Don't drive it
in a wind storm!


Best Features

It has a cute sounding horn.


Worst Features

PLacement of cup holder. Improve overall quality of car. Don't listen to hype from dealer.

Review

My wife and I bought this car as a
vehicle for me to drive back and forth
to work. However, we have been using
it more than our minivan. The trunk is
large enough for the bicycle trailer we
have for our children, with room to
spare, and we have a rack to carry our
bicycles on the roof. I would not have
been able to carry as much in the '94
Cavalier I used to own as I am able to
get in this car. As my wife can't
drive a vehicle with manual
transmission, that makes this my car.
We can even carry on a conversation
without having to raise our voices on
the interstate doing 70 mph.


Best Features

Trunk Space, Head room, extremely quiet.


Worst Features

Center Console, Cruise Control, Sport version with more powerful engine.
