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


Review

Great mileage...loved it so much we went back to dealership 4 months later to buy another for daughter in college. EXCELLENT Mileage on highway. City MPG fluctuates. Both cars had service engine light come on at 70,000 miles-both O sensor. Daughter hit herd of deer at 50 mph, car lost but she was unhurt. Small but safe. Hate the tires that come with it from manufacturer--both cars needed replaced within 15,000 miles. Heat and air nice. Got hatchbacks and everything fits when seats folded down! Put a 5 ft Xmas tree in there every year...also bought 6 ft kitchen counter top at Lowes and it fit!


Best Features

MILEAGE! Fact that it turns on a dime and gives back change. Easy to park. Available space in hatchback.


Worst Features

Don't like cup holder space-need to move your cup to get to heat/air controls. Very LIGHT, doesn't handle AT ALL in wind esp on highway. No armrest comfort. Minimal pick up-if you need to go from 0-60mph quickly-it won't happen.

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


Review

We called this car our little pill. It was white, and shaped just like a gel tab of Tylenol. :) For using this car as a primary means of communication to and from work, I give this car a 10! For having enough room to fit 2 carseats, a stroller, and a passenger, that's it! Forget groceries or driving the mother-in-law somewhere.


Best Features

The mpg was refreshing to only need to fill up bi-weekly.


Worst Features

Car overheated on a trip with some mountains. Felt like driving the little engine that could get up the hill.

Review

Hello, I'm reading through all the previous posts and amazed of all the problems that people are having. As of July 1, 2009 I have 80,000 miles on mine. It will be four years old in October. I will admit the original tires were junk, I replaced them at around 20,000 and now have Toyo's. The new tires are wearing awesome, I can probably get around 75,000 miles on them. Other then that, oil change every 5k, rotate tires every 10k. My goal was to get 100,000 miles on it (five years). Gas mileage, I travel 85 miles per day and I have been getting 34-37 MPG


Best Features

Plain and simple, love it.


Worst Features

Better speakers

Review

I only had my car two year and it broke down on me in the summer and it only had 67,000 miles on it. The thermostat housing melted the auto repair man said that it happened only because of how cheap the car was made and what it was made of. The car being fuel efficient is great but if something happens and it over heats then you need to get a new engine which is worth what the car it worth. I would not recommend this to anyone.
