I have had this car longer than any other vehicle I have owned.

I am not sure how relevant this is since I am not sure this model is still in production. I really like this car and it has served me well. No more than the typical repairs for an aging car. The only thing I would have liked is a little more comfort in the driver's and passenger's seats. Gas mileage is great and despite the size of the car, I feel safe in it. The folding back seats provide quite a bit of luggage and shopping capacity, too.

The '08 Chevy Aveo's Biggest Mechanical Problems (That I've Had To Deal With)

It's been a decent car. Three of the bigger issues though were: the shifter got stuck in park and I had to have that fixed. And the steering column had an issue where it locks your key in the starter. That was irritating. Then there was some sensor issue that trips the airbag light, but instead of just fixing the sensor, you have to replace the entire clock mechanism. I had to have that last one done twice.

My 2008 Chevy Aveo 5 has taken me to all kinds of destinations.

I love my 2008 Chevy Aveo. It gets great gas mileage & has gotten me everywhere. Unfortunately, it does now have power windows or seats, but I am okay with not having those options. It has been to Florida several times & also the lower part of Kentucky. I loved the hatchback feature & the fact that I can lower back bench seat & haul things in it.
