"I am disappointed in my car overall. It isn't good on gas, especially being such a small car. It has a recall for the ignition which I am taking care of now. I bought the car new and have kept up with the care needed and replaced all wheels this year although I don't drive often or far. But the disappointment extends to the dealership where I bought it and take it in for any inspections, care needed....and although it was new--every time I took the car in for an yearly inspection for a sticker==they always (no kidding) find something expensive to have to fix!! At a high cost to me even though I detected no problems. When I said I would wait and think it over my car acted up!! So I had to take it back in.
I like the fact it has a hatch back for me to keep my art materials in and I am only 4 ft. 11 in. and I fit very well and comfortable in the seat and reaching all the foot pedals fine. I like the fact that my tall family and friends also fit comfortably in the car also."
"One owner. Never smoked in vehicle by anyone. Oil changed every 3000 miles. Very dependable vehicle. No recalls. 5 speed manual transmission. Parking brake always used. New rear brakes. Great gas mileage and fun to drive"
"Great car. I bought it used with 35,000 mi. I have maintained this little car faithfully. I have the oil changed every 3000 miles. I put a new stereo system in it with new speakers. Stereo has gps. Minor little things could be repaired such as the cd player stopped playing, the passenger side window button does not work. Could be a fuse, but it does go up and down from the drivers side. Someone tried to steal my car so the key lock on the outside was pushed inside the door. I have power locks and never used the key lock on the outside so I never fixed it. Car runs great."
Cons: "not enough power to accelerate up hill with AC on"

"This vehicle was bought new. 1st issue we found was wind related. When the wind blows a certain direction while traveling at a higher speed the vehicle "howls" loudly. and constantly. Next front shocks went out. Next A/C quit. Next oil leak from gasket."
"I got this 2004 Aveo hatchback car new with only the basics. Intermittent wipers, basic radio, manual transmission. I have had a few minor check engine lite issues and I lost a water pump which caused me to have to do a top end but other than that this car get 34 mpg on the highway, has great power, sufficient room. Does not burn oil. At 305,000 I am still on the original clutch. My goal is to reach 500,000 miles with this car."
