The comfortable but somewhat flawed Subcompact from Chevrolet
I purchased My 2008 Chevrolet Aveo with the 4 speed automatic as a used car in 2017 And it has been very reliable car for me. It has always started right up and has reliably ferried me to and from work for over a year now. I'm 6 feet tall and 320 lbs. the Aveo is easy for me to get in and out of (I like that very much) and the sitting position and head room is very comfortable as well. however it has room to improve in several areas, the first is the engine power / power delivery (or drive-ability) horsepower needs to be improved without question, but I feel the real weak link is the transmission, it seems like it was done on the cheap it's poorly mounted to the car and the frame and it's common to see comments on Aveo fan sites about transmission failures and transmission mount failures, also the interior fit and finish has a lot to be desired, this also seems to be where Chevy fell short of a really quality product, everything except the head liner seems "thin" and "flimsy" tons of low grade plastics and fabrics. the dashboard ergonomics are not great but acceptable, and the digital LCD odometer and trip A & B displays fade in and out often. hope this helps.
