"Bought the car new at about $9000. has a 100000 miles and does not use a drop of oil between oil changes. I use synthetic motor oil and change it every 5000 miles. I drive mostly hwy miles and get between 36 to 38 MPG. A little less in winter months."
"I bought my 04 when they first came out (in 2004). I absolutely LOVE my little orange rollerskate.
I bought the automatic, which I'm grateful for. The get up and go that this little car has is very suprising, the looks on the faces of the people in their big fancy cars when we blow pass them going up-hill is the best.
I bought an upgraded model. It has the premium sound system with mp3, tinted windows, tilt wheel, rear spoiler and premium wheels. I replaced the original tires at 14000 miles and it does ride better. Since I replaced the tires my mpg has gone up to 36mpg. I have no bad things to say about this car. Its wonderful and I would and have suggested to others looking to buy a new car to look at the Chevy AVEO.
By the way, I am 6 feet tall and most of my friends are 6 feet and taller. We all fit very comfortably in this car, there is a suprising amount of room from the tops of our heads to the roof of the car. Plus we all have long legs which is not a problem.
My daughter and I have taken several cross crountry trips and have been more then comfortable on them.
I have had NO mechanical problems, I just make sure I change the oil and rotate the tires when I'm supposed to.
If your looking for a good, reliable, non gas guzzler, comfortable and cute car-then you should check out the AVEO."
"I bought this car in 2007 for $8900 new on the lot. It is just a plain basic car with nothing fancy. The only maintenance that I have had to do is changing the timing belt, spark plugs, servicing fluids, and oil changes. It now has 196000 miles on it and runs like it did when new. I recently checked the brake pads, and they are still in good shape. These are still the original brakes. The only problem that I have with it is that it will eat a set of tires in 20,000 miles, even if the alignment is good and the tires get rotated frequently. This has been the best investment I have made in a car. I would definitely buy another like it."
