The stearing is very touchy, and all curves should be taken with extra caution

It's very reliable. It was very cheap, that was why i bought it, cheap on gas also. You get great gas mileage. It is a stick shift. The gears shift nicely. When I first bought it, I had to break it in, like it wasn't used to getting into fourth gear and the first few times on the highway you could tellout went used to getting any speed, but it handled nicely. It is very small and cramped quarters, so it wouldn't be useful for a family, but for a single person I suppose out would be just fine. It handles sharp curves a little shakily, so it's best to go real slow around curves, but you don't get the tippy feeling as you might think you sound when taking sharp curves. There is no air conditioning so it does get pretty hot in the summer time, especially with the all black interior. The car is so little that yippy feel like a midget compared to all other cars on the road.

Chevrolet 2009 Aveo review

Since I bought my car in 2009 it has done nothing but eat tires. For whatever reason it wears my tires unevenly and I do get my tires rotated regularly. The tire pressure light has malfunctioned is on all the time. I went from a car that got 16 miles per gallon to this car that I can get 30 miles per gallon. It is nice to only have to fill the car up once a week instead of every couple of days. The door lock is an odd system. The only way to unlock or lock the doors is to push or pull up the lock on the drivers side door. The passenger seat does not have an armrest and makes it hard to have passengers be comfortable in the car for long trips.

Reliable, affordable, and a great first car.

This is my very first car. I got it in high school and it has lasted me up until this point. It has had a few things that needed to replaced here and there. I have probably spent about $1500 on repairs in the last four years. For the most part, it has been extremely reliable. I have traveled thousands of miles in this car to go to university and come home for breaks. I also have taken my car on a lot of road trips. It gets phenomenal gas mileage and it only takes between $20 and $25 to fill an empty tank up. It is definitely not luxury but it is nice especially right after I finish cleaning it.
