An all around reliable vehicle, despite simplicity of features.

My Aveo is a great car in my opinion. It is simple and comfortable. It is small which really comes in handy if you are in an area where street parking is necessary. It is spacious on the inside with plenty of leg and room overhead. Keep in mind that windows are manual as are the locks which can prove a hassle. The seats are canvas and cloth and are very comfortable and easy to clean.

It is a good car as I said earlier I would like something better but at the moment it's okay

my car is reliable and delicate in the parts in which I use it, it has small details of paint that probably fixes this year and I also have to make an oil change for the end of the month, I use it to go to work and from time to time to take my children to the maternal, in conclusion it is a good car I aspire something better but for the moment they are excellent and reliable

Something in my life that I had to depend on and I could.

Its a basic car but excellent gas mileage and I have had absolutely no problems the entire time of owning this car. The performance of said car has also been without a doubt what I needed in a car. Reliability and comfort has got me to and from work since 2004 everyday and it was a 2 hour drive each way so comfort was important along with its features.

Don't buy this car if you're looking for a long lasting/family car.

It's older and I would like to have a newer one. It doesn't have a working radio, has electrical problems, and generally feels like a safety hazard every time I drive it. We have to do work on it once every few months it seems like, and my tires also don't like to hold air no matter how many times I change them/ buy new ones.

Good for college students; hatchback commuter.

It is had brake problems for a while, the transmission is faulty, and the abs and check engine light comes on randomly. It is uncomfortable for long drives due to being compact, but is great on mileage. It is great for me as a college student, but I wouldn't recommend it for a family of more than two people.

Love the size of my car (sorta)

I love that my car is a hatchback, it is large enough to hold more than you think it would, but small enough to park just about anywhere. I would like to find a similar model with electric locks and windows, in addition I would like the car to be ~1-2 feet longer for more leg room for the back passengers.

It's a decent little car. It had work done a few times with the water tank.

It is a great little car. It gets decent gas mileage and has worked for a long time. However, it has had to be fixed up a few times. Mainly the water tank and radiator. It has a decent amount of space but can also get a little crowded. Overall it's a nice little car to get around in.

- Katie V

A car that fits into almost any size space.

It is been a very reliable little car. I haven't had hardly any problems with it until recently due to age. The perfect car for a single person. There is not much space in the back seat but I was never back there. The hatchback in the seats lay down to make more room in the back.

- Jen H

My Aveo ls is still the nicest little car out there! I love my Aveo.

My Aveo is fast, does not need much gas and not much attention. My car is just the real thing, after having driven a big Chevy, my kids called "the boat' this little thing took me to pick up my granddaughter and friends from school and took me to go shopping all those years.

- Olivia N

Hold-mode transmission button, to override default gearing.

The Chevrolet Aveo is very economical for the cost. It has some downsides, like a conservatively shifting transmission, and a tendency for the timing idler pulley to break under high rpm if maintenance intervals are skipped. Other than that the car has been wonderful.

- Dylan J

It only takes $25 to fill up the gas tank.

It's a little car but its really good on gas takes $25 to fill up the tank the only problem is sometimes whether I hit the has to go it has a hard time getting up to speed fast enough it's also black which causes the car to be really hot during the summer time.

- Summer L

They don't make that exact model anymore.

My 2004 Chevy Aveo is great on gas mileage, is reliable when it comes to the battery and engine. Kind of small but a the same time spacious enough to fit car seats without being cramped. The ac and heat work fantastically and don't take forever to kick on.

- Emily H

The vehicle is red orange.

My vehicle is really nice and small. I will never have problems with this car. I have had it for about three year and I still really like it. I am planning on maybe getting a new car but not until 3 years. I do not know what else to say about my car?

Although the car is old it still performs well and is manageable to take care of with a little bit of patience.

It has good gas mileage. It's a hatchback, so that's handy I guess.

The stock seats are kind of uncomfortable and the AC works best when the vehicle is moving or in the shade.
