You'll Like The 2009 Chevrolet Aveo If...

If you're looking for budget-conscious, efficient basic transportation you'll like the 2009 Chevrolet Aveo. Practical, utilitarian and with no complicated high-tech systems to learn, the little sedan is also a good choice for RVers looking for a haul-behind car. Another plus: The high seating position for driver and passenger.

Driving an Aveo is like driving a cardboard box

This car very much reminds me of my previous Kia Rio. I'm not a fan. I have to replace my headlights several times throughout the year, my air conditioning went out two years ago and it is a $300 fix. My paint is chipping and I feel like I'm driving a box. When I first bought the car, I had to take it back to the dealership in the first couple days because the car would accelerate past 15 mph. I have had non stop issues since I got it and would never buy another one. We own an other Chevy that we absolutely love but the Aveo has been quite a disappointment.

Small is beautiful and carries a big load!

I never thought I could love a small car, but my 2009 Chevy Aveo hatchback is a perfect fit. It is quick and responsive. Good smooth drive. Maneuvers like a dream. Fits any parking space. With the back seat folded down it has cargo space for most things I need to haul around; perfect for a run to the dump or recycling center or supermarket. Also nice to put a weeks worth of gas in for less than $20! Yes, there are days when I miss the huge carrying ability of my old minivan. But lots more days when small is beautiful!

2009 Chevrolet Aveo = a car for the working person!!

My car has been relatively free of problems with the exception of regular maintenance - it gets great gas mileage and is comfortable on trips and has a large truck - it is always reliable and is red which I love!! Even though I bought it used it has performed to my highest expectation and has never let me down - I would recommend this make and model to anyone looking for a good sturdy, dependable car!!
