2009 Chevrolet Aveo 5 1LT 4dr Hatchback (1.6L 4cyl 5M)


Review

Where do I start? There's so much wrong. It started with the accelerator being wired backwards. When you step down on the gas it stops when you let up it goes. The engine sputters on acceleration. The trans grinds into 2nd gear. Gas mileage very poor 30 highway at best with 5 spd. Now the other day the engine just died and I couldn't get it going again. Bought brand new 09 gm will not accept any responsibility


Best Features

interior is nice for a pile of crap.

2009 Chevrolet Aveo 5 1LT 4dr Hatchback (1.6L 4cyl 5M)


Review

Radio can’t have duplicate stations or it will get stuck in a “loop” not allowing you to listen to your other preset stations. Mileage has never gone over 25 mpg. NOT power door locks. This is a crock! Keyless key is touchy & alarm goes off. Rear window locks at half way down. There should be an optional override feature to allow windows to go all the way down. Cup holders are a joke and poorly made. They won’t open when its cold and they’re flimsy. After month old and dashboard, and back hatch rattles. Crappy windshield jets. Sprays stream vs., mist/spray. Low tire warning STAYS on even when over filled. Driver side window needed adjusting twice after 1 month, makes popping sound.


Best Features

Large cabin space


Worst Features

See above plus many more that I didn't have room for.

When my wife first got it i called it a clown car becouse its looks so small, but its peppy and fun to drive. way more comfortable than you would think and the back seats are more comfortable than the other baby cars on the market. we tested most of them,exept the ford dont know why.could get better milage. bring back the geo metro.

Review

I drive 115 miles round trip to work every day. I bought this car for the economy and because of the deal on it. I average 36 mpg. At 70 mph. The interior is very nice (LT). No rattles. Radio is very good. Changing the oil is easy once you get a 45 star bit and a 24meter socket for the filter. All in all a nice little car.


Best Features

Stereo(LT),Surprisingly nice quality interior(LT)


Worst Features

5 speed is slushy feeling.Ugly wheel covers. Engine noise is a bit loud...6 speed would help engine noise and improve economy.

Vehicle

2009 Chevrolet Aveo LS 4dr Sedan (1.6L 4cyl 5M)


Review

29.8 mpg is all I can squeeze out of it; even with a lucas additive in the fuel; a good driving car; as good as a Toyota Prius maybe even better, but poor fuel economy compared to my old Toyota Tercel wagon with on-demand 4 wheel drive, which is handy during winter months


Best Features

I don't know that there is anything favorite about any of these new cars; they are all steril in in appearance and functionality. The hip sway in the back deters from rear view visibility!


Worst Features

make a 4x4 on demand station wagon version
