I love my Pontiac Wave 5 door. This car offers me all of the functionality I need, plus it offers good get up and go for its size and class, and great fuel economy. I've been averaging about 7.5 liters per 100 Km's, which to me is outstanding. Much better than the piece of junk I was driving before, that couldn't get out of it's own way, and got atrocious fuel economy.
I had the Chevrolet Aveo as a rental car when my 92 Honda finally kicked the bucket, and trust me, I never will LOOK at a Honda again. I really enjoyed the Aveo, but wanted something just a tad sportier. So I looked at the Aveo's twin, Pontiac Wave, only available here in Canada (as far as I know...). The only real difference between the Wave and the Aveo is the grill, and a few other minor trim pieces. I am a single father of 2, so I don't have all of the money in the world to spend on a car. This car came loaded up with a sunroof, spoiler on the back, alloy wheels, keyless entry with alarm, CD/MP3 Player, outstanding crash test scores, and amazing fit and finish and reliability, all for under $20K.
This car is very comfortable. I am 6'5 and am still very comfortable in this car. The seating is placed high, so it is very easy to get in and out of the car. Also, for a small 4 cylinder power plant, it really offers a lot of power. Granted 103hp isn't a ton, it does the job very nicely in this car. Great engine!!
This car is built by GM Daewoo over in South Korea, and is also known as the Daewoo Kalos, Chevrolet Aveo, Suzuki Swift+, and Chevrolet Kalos. It's a car that is known throughout the world. I am sure finding parts for it will never be a problem. I love this car!!
