2008 Chevrolet Aveo 5 Special Value 4dr Hatchback (1.6L 4cyl 5M)


I would recommend this car to others based on initial driving. It has exceeded my expectations, which were for a small, simple, economical car. First tank of gas off the dealer's lot in 60/40 highway/city driving for 2 different drivers yielded 32.8 mpg. Haven't owned it long enough to rate build and reliability. For an economy car, I find the engine performance more than adequate, although not fast. 65mph comes in at just under 3000rpm. Ride is comfortable for a small car. Like the forward dash and high ceilings, which create greater interior room. Initially looked for used, but price of a new (with A/C installed by dealer) came in within budget.

Best Features

Purchase price. Fuel mileage. Interior room. Engine power

Worst Features

Buffets slightly on highway in high wind Some wind noise (like blowing with pursed lips into a bottle) Sounds like heat shield vibrating at highway speed
