2005 Chevrolet Aveo LS 4dr Hatchback (1.6L 4cyl 5M)


Small size, price, and fuel economy were driving factors as a replacement commuter pod with versatile storage. The 5-speed transmission has a little slack in shifting. The engine delivers 70-mph at 3000rpm in 5th gear. Mileage did not clear 31MPG after 5K miles. The passenger compartment is roomy and the console intuitive. The radio/CD runs surprisingly hot - I wouldn't leave a CD in for more than 90 minutes. The hatch area (manual independent lock) is not deep but can accomodate storage in laundry basket modules. The rear seat fold-down space works easily but the seats do not 'recess' and they cause a 6" 'step up' for the storage floor. Nice profile.

Best Features

No transmission fluid change; 7500 miles per oil change; small car has a surprisingly tall profile - don't feel 'small' on the road. I drive with a small, unused gas can to wave at the Hummers, SUVs, and pickups.

Worst Features

Support all-lock/unlock feature. Add a set speed feature when in 5th gear (highway). Choose a radio that runs much cooler.
