"I hate my 2010 Chevy Aveo, It is a 2010 and has manual locks and crank windows. I've had so many problems, and I take care of my car as regulated. Fuses going out, cracks in the engine, O2 sensor has gone out 3 times in 2 years. I have to put in new headlights every 5-8 weeks. The number 3 on my a/c has gone out twice. The car is very light, I feel so unsafe in the snow, winter tires or not people hate driving my car in the snow/ice. Just overall disappointed with this purchase. It's turning into a money pit and it's only been 4 years! I have 2 payments left and I'm trading in this car. I do love the small hood I can weave in and out of traffic easily, and parking is a breeze!"

"It was a good little car for getting around in. I would recommend this car to a friend who want ed something for normal use. The only thing that could be better would be for highway driving, but then most small cars are not made for that anyway"

"Bought this new and is my daily driver mostly to and from work. The only real issues I've had are: 1) The digital clock. It was replaced under warranty and I have since replaced it again. 2) The original front brake pads were annoyingly noisy. I replaced them with Raybestos at 15,000 miles and solved the problem. 3) Camshaft position sensor failed at about 50,0000. This was the only expensive repair I've had - about $165. 4) Fuel cap required replacement. This car is nothing special, but has been very reliable and economical. When I bought it I compared to Echo and Fit, but I was able to buy the Aveo for about $5000 less. I can easily get over 30 MPG in city driving by keeping my foot out of it. The car is certainly nothing fancy or luxurious, but that's not why it exists. The only convenience feature I miss is remote keyless entry, especially when it's raining. If I were to sell it now for average KBB price, this car would be without a doubt the most economical new car I've ever owned."
