2007 Aveo 5 Owner Reviews (6)
It's a Daewoo - Junk
This Chevy car is actually a daewoo. It's a Korean car with Denso parts. I owned one in 2000, it last 60k miles the auto-trans broke, engine had emissions problems at 30k miles and I couldnt never get the car to steer or blake correctly.
My father bought one also and his lasted 120k miles but had an engine rebuild, timing belt replaced 3 times, water pump, power steering pump, air conditioner compresser, several computer's and sensor's, transmission replaced and had the entire brake system replaced almost a dozen times. Was all highway milage.
Nice car for the first year then throw it away!
Every car mechanic I ever brought it to scowled at it and would tell me things like "it's not designed to be fixed".
The car handles and drives like its glued to the road, the engine is quiet due to an extensive intake muffler that is about 20% of whats under the hood. It has decent performance, not quick off the line. If you hit a pothole, kiss your nice handing goodbye.
would like to have one but the warranty sucks, that lets me know it wouldn't last long. what happend to the 100,000 mile warranty ?
My 2007 Aveo
I purchased my 2007 Hatchback Aveo in August. The alternator went out and parts are hard to locate. So, it will take a week to get it fixed. Luckily, I am with a good dealership and they have given me loaner car.
Also, going down the road between 50-60 mph there are times it has a vibration in the steering column. The dealership says it is road conditions, but I think there is a flaw in the design. Sometimes, whne the wind blows hard (30mph or more) against the passenger side, the wheel on the front driver side moans, like there is a lot of friction. THAT is a hard one to explain to the dealership. (How are they going to test for that?)
On the up side, when it is not vibrating, the ride is great. The economy is not as good as I had hoped. I drive on the road most of the time, and the best I've gotten is 29 MPG. Not bad, but not the 35 I was hoping. All in all, even with the price difference, I think I would have been better off with another choice.
better than expected
I'm driving a rental Aveo, and I am very impressed! It is much more roomy than it appears from the outside, and the engine is very smooth. (I've caught myself going 85mph on the freeway several times without noticing.) I would definitely trade in my gas-guzzling SUV for this!
