"Traded 05 Aveo owned 6 years with no road noise complaint. I've replaced the tires with quiet rated tires, installed Dynamat sound deadening material throughout and the noise from the tires is still terrible. It even drowns out the radio. I've only driven it 2200 miles in 5 months because of the tire noise. They spend all the money on useless technology like touchscreen radios and trying to turn a car into a cell phone while ignoring the basic driving experience of a quiet ride."

"I bought this car new from a dealership and I enjoy driving it and I especially like how small it is and how it gets good gas mileage but my favorite feature is the digital speedometer, it looks so futuristic."
