Little Red Riding Car - Aveo Steals America�s Hearts, Then Our Patience.

2006 Chevrolet Aveo LS

I got the most basic package - no power windows, locks, or anything (except steering), no CD player (just am/FM radio)... that is something I regret. The car itself has been very reliable and required little maintenance over the years outside of the normal stuff like oil changes, tires, batteries, etc. Now that it's a bit older (13 years!) it's starting to have different problems - the sealants for the windows are dried and starting to get leaky when it rains, the paint is starting to peel (it spent most of its life baking in the Arizona sunshine), and belts are starting to dry and need replacing. I live in Philadelphia now and its size has been great for the city! Big enough to carry a few passengers for day trips to the beach with a trunk full of snacks, but small enough to fit into those tiny parallel parking spaces. I also got it in the bright red finish, so it is easy to spot! The ride is not what I'd call smooth, but it's not terribly bumpy, either. Maybe a little below average. Maybe my shocks are just a little old now, too. I've had the a/c touched up once and it has still been cranking out cold air consistently. It's cheap to maintain, and parts are never back ordered or out of stock. You can basically have any American auto shop fix it up. The seams on the seats have started to come undone and you can see the cushioning of the seat in some spots. Again, she's an old lady and that's a newer problem. I probably wouldn't buy one again, but it is a great first car or city car if you don't drive much and won't put it through much wear and tear!

The thing I love the best about the Chevy Aveo is the gas mileage.

2006 Chevrolet Aveo

My Aveo gets great gas mileage! I just purchased it two months ago and it has had a slight vibration in front end. Dealership I bought it from said it needs a rotor replaced on the front passenger side. I have appointment to do that on Tuesday. Only problem I have encountered. Starts easily every time. The one I purchased does not have cruise control which I would recommend having. Electric windows and locks. Seats are not electric. It is an automatic and shifts into gear smoothly. I checked the oil a couple days ago. It is due for oil change and it has used no oil. I drive thirty five miles one way to work. I fill it up Sunday night and drive all week. Gas mileage is wonderful. Plenty of legroom. Overall pretty comfortable. The trunk is very roomy for being a small car I would recommend the Chevy Aveo to anyone. Very satisfied with it.

The car that breaks my bank and causes me daily stress

2006 Chevrolet Aveo Special Value

Every time I think I finally have it in good running condition something else breaks. Right now it is either the starter or battery. The engine starts humming very loudly if the car is on for too long. I had to have the driver's side window repaired because it stopped going down. The shocks are horrible! Does not drive well on anything that is not a flat surface. Bad for Midwestern winters! Everything is slowly falling apart on it. Including the body! I looked underneath and rusted parts fell down when I was trying to clean it! The door upholstery has been peeling. The horn stopped working. It does have a good size trunk and is great on gas. I hate this car. Because of the neverending struggles I will never buy another Chevy again!
