Great small GM car

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


This is my first new car, and it is absolutely great! It has excellent handling, is incredibly easy to park, and people are constantly amazed at how much room the interior has. At first the manual transmission was a little rubbery, but after 9000 miles it has broken in nicely and shifts much better. Absolutely no maintenance problems whatsoever. The car actually seems to be holding up well in Michigan on a dirt road (our normal roads are also pretty nasty). Good ride, definitely easy to push through the curves. Too bad GM can't figure out how to make something similar in America, or without stealing from Daewoo, though.

Best Features

Handling, interior room, ruggedness. Very good headlights that do an excellent job of picking out the deer and other road hazards.

Worst Features

Perhaps a slightly more powerful 4-cylinder that puts out a bit more torque to help get through the snow (say, 120 hp and 130 lb-ft?). Make a better stock AM/FM radio. I replaced mine right away with something else.
