Gas Hog!


AC went out, but it was covered by warranty.

General Comments:

I was looking to buy a cheap reliable car. I got that and a CD player, AC, and power everything. But this car is a gas hog. I have seen V8's that get better mileage. 1.2 litre engine with 72 hp I just don't get what it does with all that gasoline. I am buying a deisel...

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No

My aveo gets poor mileage considering the power output. The engine is dated.

My Aveo gets great mileage and I am happy the engine is dated since it means it is simpler to work on and simpler to fix.

So what IS the gas mileage that you folks are saying is good or bad?
