Seems that nobody heard anything about the recent Toyota recalls including a recall of 775000 Tundras...the worldwide recall of nearly one million Prius hybrids. Also a 368,000 SUV recall including Lexus and Highlanders.
The message is that every car model have a weak point, and Aveos have a lot of goodness for little money. I have two, a 2005 SVM and a 2006 LS and there are the most trouble free cars I ever had. And they have a nicer ride and feel bigger inside that the xA (specially the 06/07's). The xA feels and ride like the small car it is.

See, I am considering buying a Chevy Aveo LS, and I go all over the net looking for information.
Thanks a lot for all of your comments, they are really helpful.
I am just wondering is the car worth the money or should I just add a little more and get a Honda or Toyota?
Any comments are welcome.
Again, thank you very much.

I bought my 2005 Aveo LS hatchback about a month and a half ago. It was used with only 12500 miles on it. I have put about 500 miles on it and have had to take it in 2 times already. The first time was for a grinding noise that turned out to be a missing shift plug...fixed..the second time I went to start my car and the engine just wouldn't turn over. There was some sputtering and after 3 attempts it started and idled quite roughly. This continued to happen off and on for the next few days, but when I brought it into the dealer it of course started up perfectly and they couldn't find anything wrong with it. I drove about 20 miles parked for 30 min. and the same problem happened again when I went to start it! If this is a serious problem with the starter or fuel pump I need to get it fixed before the warranty is up. Anyone else experience this?

I have had an Aveo since September of 05... I have driven over 31,000 and have had no problems. It's been a fantastic car!
