This car cost me $8700 after my GM discount and rebates. I was always skeptical of the Aveo, that is, until I drove it. It doesn't have the seemingly endless amount of torque and horsepower that my Intrigue has, but it's to be expected. It is a pretty spunky little car, given it's an economy car with a 4 cylinder. I've really been enjoying it, it cruises back and forth on the expressway at 65-85 mph. with absolutely no complaint. Gas mileage is awsome, it seems to be getting better the more I drive it. When I first got it, I was averaging about 28 mpg., but I now am averaging about 33 mpg. It probably has to do with the new engine "break-in". I have gotten numerous compliments on my Aveo, because it is unique looking, and very functional. The interior materials seem to be of great quality, and the craftsmanship is the best I have ever encountered. Even somewhat better than my Intrigue. I would recommend this car to anyone.
It takes off like a little pocket rocket when you really need it to. The exterior is stylish, as well as the interior, and it is very comfortable to drive---and I am 6'5!! It really is surprisingly roomy on the inside! And it costs me about $20 to fill from empty, with gas prices being the way they are.
I really do recommend this car, as it is stylish, affordable, comfortable, and practical. And did I mention it got a five-star crash test rating? Yep, that's right. It really is incredible. We still have our Intrigue, which averages 17 mpg., and we still love it, but we are really starting to fall in love with this Aveo. Take a look at one, you really will be surprised at how nicely they ride.
