2008 Chevrolet Aveo LS 4dr Sedan (1.6L 4cyl 5M)


If money were no object, some relatively minor improvments would make the Aveo a contender. So, for the price paid ($10,400 brand new off the lot!), this car was a fantastic deal. Since new, and now with 11,000 miles, only two minor problems: a tire pressure sensor went on one wheel. No biggie. This was repaired by the dealer with no issues. Developed a front-end shudder due to improper lug torque on both front wheels. Again, an easy fix. Design and build quality is excellent. Seams are even and tight. Not a squeak or rattle has developed. Motor remains perky and trouble-free (easy starts, no stalls). There is a buzz in the gas pedal over 60 mph, but have learned to deal with it.

Best Features

Peppy performance (but affects economy). Classy, roomy interior. Excellent seating. Great sound system. Roomy trunk. Includes "upscale" features (cabin filter, oil and tire monitoring systems). Dependable to date and virtually hassle-free. Excellent warranty includes 5 years road-side maintenance.

Worst Features

Add convenience lighting. Move cup holders and "air bag on" indicator. Dull the high-beam indicator. Tighten up the manual shift (a bit loose). Tighten suspension (tends to roll in turns and high wind). A little more insulation against road noise and cure the buzz. Fix these and it's a big winner!
