So much fun to drive... by Brutale Rider From The Wine Country on 07/03/2013. Trim: 2007 Chevrolet Aveo LS 4-Door, Owned 6 years.
Pros: I got this car new in 07. It has the 4 speed automatic. Downshifts at the proper rpms for good passing ability. Ride is firm and steering tight for a little car. Seats are comfortable and the stock CD player sounds great no matter what genre of music I listen to, A/C will freeze you out even in Texas. Styling is fresh, many think it's a 2013 model.
Cons: No way to lock out 4th gear on the 4 sp Auto Trans. A power button locks it into 2nd but there are times I want to lock out 4th, like climbing long hills.
Overall review: This is a great car for a commuter like me. Great on gas, small and easy to park, power enough to pass if I need to. Fit and finish is superb. So much fun to drive, I now use it on weekends instead of just for commuting to work. All my friends try to buy it off me.......... Sorry, it's mine to keep!

Stay Safe & Eat Some Economy Cake Too by Pogo from Ohio on 12/29/2012. Trim: 2007 Chevrolet Aveo LS 4-Door, Owned 5 years.
Pros: This is a wonderfully reliable and economic car - Chevy did a good thing putting out this line. I like the taller seat position, this is a good safety feature. I purchased it as an economy purchase, wanted reliability and gas economy and that's what I got -- its also comfortable for two people on a long trip. The back seat comes up short if you are transporting tall adults though -- mine is a manual and it has really good handling. My husband has a Hyundai and he likes to steal rides in it because its cheaper for us to travel on a trip in this car than in his car. I had no problems with it the first 60K -- doing routine maintenance now that I'm past it.
Cons: Because it is a light car, you need to slow down in high winds. It's got a boxy shape that bustles the body around if the weather gets serious.
Overall review: I love this car for what I purchased it for -- it gets me around safely and economically and feels like a bigger car when you are seated inthe front seats. It's comfortable driving in the city and the country and through most kinds of weather. For a compact car and my first Chevy in a long time, I was not disappointed. I was unfortunately "t-boned" at an intersection and the car took a beating from a van, but kept me safe. Hey - some people do not know what a "stop" sign means so its good to be in a small and safe car. I'd give this car an 8.5 rating -- just because the back seat could use some redesign, but luckily, I don't sit back there much because the driver's wheel is in the front. It starts with energy, the manual can take on hills with some guts and stops great in wet and snowy weather. Not bad at all for a little guy.

A poor poor choice for car by Disappointed on 11/14/2012. Trim: 2007 Chevrolet Aveo LS 4-Door, Owned 6 years.
Pros: Horrible car.
Cons: Bought this car in late 2006, first month the clutch went out, Chevy dealer won't honor warrenty stating I don't know how to clutch, I've been driving a manual since 1970. 3 months later clutch went out again and cingros? in transmisson go out. Still did not honor warrenty. Had to replace coil, and poor idling, 1 month before it was paid off it completely died. Never again will I buy and Aveo, after all it's just a Daewoo in disquise.
Overall review: Don't buy!!!!

GREAT RELIABILITY .... At a FANTASTIC VALUE! by Cindy... From Portland, OR to Boise, ID on 08/03/2012. Trim: 2007 Chevrolet Aveo LS 4-Door, Owned 6 years.
Pros: I am the only owner. Reaching 88,000 miles. I have been commuting round trip 115 miles to work 19 months. My Chevy Aveo has been GREAT!!!! When I take trips to "the city" 2-3 times a year.... I drive with caution, because I don't want to risk my lil baby. ... I have (almost) always had a new vehicle for 34 years.... I've never kept one THIS long! I hope my next purchase is this reliable!!!
Cons: I wish I had cruise control. When driving in windy conditions....HOLD ON AS TIGHT AS YA CAN!!! At 70mph with a cross breeze... There seemed to be too much noise near wind shield area.... The portland area Oregon dealer was chicken to test saying I exceeded Oregon laws.... But I drive in Idaho... Legal at 75 mph. The only seriously annoying item is... Way too much road noise inside. So, I simply turn up the stereo.... But I got what I paid for!
Overall review: Overall..... Extremely low maintenance, VERY reliable, awesome gas mileage. This has been my BEST car purchase for the money saved and the reliability I have needed! My next purchase will be a Chevy!
