2006 Chevrolet Aveo LS 4dr Hatchback (1.6L 4cyl 5M)


I bought this car at the height of the high gas prices. Expected HUGE gas savings. BUT I have never gotten better than 18mpg in the city,and that is driving no 'pedal to the metal' ever. 'Fun driving' drops it even more. I got better mileage in the truck I traded in for this car. Mechanically it is solid. But trim pieces fade fast,paint is easily scratched,hatch release lever has broken 10 times! All 'fixed' under warranty. But now warranty is gone,and minor things are wearing fast. Nothing major,yet. Kind of fun to drive. Easy to add options that 99% other Aveos don't have. Like FACTORY side molding, tint,aftermarket wheel covers,and graphics kits. Easy to park,and lots of storage in the HB.

Best Features

Tilt steering wheel,split/flat folding rear seating,firm seats,rear hatch wiper,high drivers seating provides a clear view of the road,pretty fast from a dead stop,but not a lot of power unless you push it hard.

Worst Features

Better REAL mpg,longer bumper to bumper warranty,better/thicker paint,scratches VERY easily,larger brakes,braking distance is far without ABS,closer transmission shifts on the automatic models.
