A Good Deal for a family

I had a Toyota for many years and thought I would never go back to an American made car. Then I found the Aveo. I did a lot of research before I bought and I'm glad I did. You get great gas mileage, good handling, front and side airbags, 5-star crash rating all for under 9,000 dollars. I feel confident driving around with my toddler. The only draw back is that the seats are a little uncomfortable on long trips and I think my shocks are going already. Other than that we love ********* cute and it gets great gas mileage.
Love the car! Ejoy the mileage

We've only had our Aveo a little over two months. We bought it used, it had only 19,000 miles on it. As for the long run, I can't say. But I can say that at this point we LOVE our aveo! We get 30 miles per gallon city driving, my husband is a real stickler about checking gas mileage. I was surprised at some of the other reviews. We just returned from a trip in the Smokey Mts and it did great. We had a 4 wheel drive Nissan frontier before that loved gas, of course our little Aveo couldn't compare to the Nissan for mountain driving, but for it's size we were pleased. The inside is comfortable and we actually like the way the car looks. For the price, we are pleased. Our main reason for getting it was the gas mileage and so far, it's doing what we want it to. We would recommend this to anyone. If you're looking for a luxury car with all the bells and whistles, then this ain't the one, but if you want a car that is good on gas and comfortable, then get an Aveo
2006 AVEO, YUGO comparison
This car has to be one of the worst places I have put my money. The interior is uncomfortable for more then a trip to the grocer. At 22,000 miles it needed 4 new tires. The dealer tried blaming it on lack of care. HA! I saved the tires, waiting on the Chinese recall. I cancelled my GM credit card account and have vowed I will never buy another GM Product, I will spend a little more but get a lot more from service and quality.
'06 Aveo5 LS.
Max mpg was 27.4 (one time).On average 24.5-25 mpg.Overall handling and ride acceptable.Dont like timing belt change at 60,000 mi.
CAREFUL ON THE HIGHWAY
I PURCHASED THIS CAR IN 2006, I HAVENT HAD ANY PROBLEMS AS OF YET. IT RIDES SMOOTH AND ITS QUIET. WHEN THE WIND PICKS UP ON THE HIGHWAY THE CAR WILL HYGROPLANE. MY SON SUGGESTED PUTTIN SAND BAGS INSIDE THE TRUNK TO ADD WEIGHT. I WOULDNT PUT IT ON THE HIGHWAY IN THE WINTER TIME OFTEN OR TRAVEL IN THE MOUNTAINS...FOR SAFETY REASONS..FOREAL
