Switch gears if you want fast & fancy.

It sounds to me that everyone is having variable experiences with the same car. Some good, & some bad, but I say that it's worth the risk! The 2007 Chev. Aveo is my first car, but I'm no greenhorn when it comes to knowing the difference between a reliable or unreliable car. For the price I paid, it couldn't have been anymore optimal! Mine is a manual, only used for 1 year, and I purchased it for $8000. My car already contains a chip that is used to make a more efficient gas tank.. so the mileage is awesome. One thing that has always bugged me about it is the lack of safety.. this car would collapse if I were to meet grills with a semi! O.o The torque is average, but what do you expect? This car is not meant for people who are looking for fast & fancy! This is SUCH a college-kid car. It's fairly cute/stylish, cheap and fairly reliable. I say fairly reliable because I am in the midst of getting my heater fixed for the 2nd time. Although the warranty pays for the heater to be fixed, it is still an inconvenience. Yet, overall, I am very happy with this car. Not many kids who graduate H.S. in 2007 get a 2007 car without their parents paying for it!

Nothing fancy - A reliable New Car.

I bought the car, new, in February of 2008, and have just reached 20k miles. I've driven it on a 2k mile trip, with no problems. It's nice to have a new car that is worry free. I'm averaging 30 mpg, with a mix of city and highway driving. Small things like a second outlet, mp3 player with aux in, 3 cup holders, and a tachometer are some of the interior features. If you're looking for a new car, that is cheap, reliable, and somewhat stylish, this is the car for you.

I bought my chevy aveo to save money on gas I drive 120miles a day just to get to work and back home, driving to the store and post office just adds to that, so I'm in it all the time. Over all the performance, comfort and gas savings are much better than I thought it would be, it doesn't have great features but it comfortable to drive and very reliable. It does help alot that the color is black with dark grey interior so it does look stylish. I couldn't imagine driving around in a candy apple red, cobolt blue or yellow one... but thats me. I hope to drive it well over 100,000 miles, knock on wood

I bought a 2007 Chevy Aveo hatchback in December brand new. It has been in and out of the shop going on five times and only has 4000 miles on it. First my alternator needed to be replaced, that took two trips to the shop for them to figure out what was wrong. Now it?s been in the shop for the past month because the gaskets and seals blew (after I took it to the dealer for an oil chance) which took two try?s to fix also. I got it back on a Friday and that Sunday I noticed there was still something wrong with it. The engine is shaking and the car shimmies and it makes horrible noise now the engine light is on. I wouldn?t recommend this car to anyone. I live 30 miles from school and bought a new car so I would have something reliable and this car has been nothing but trouble.

This was the first new car I have ever bought. I have always driven Chevy and never had any problems that were serious, the company was always helpful and continue to be. The car has great handling and the seats are very comfortable, I drive a lot and couldnt deal with anything less. Overall its a wonderful car to drive and own.

General Motors spent alot of time making and redesigning the new 2007 Aveo. I researched and found that this is the best car for the money; and its cool, sporty style makes driving it fun. It has so much room inside you forget you are driving an economy car. Way to go GM, you blew away Toyota's and Honda's 2007 economy cars.

I bought this car because my previous one has an engine rod break, and given the circumstances (no savings, low income at the time among others), I had pretty much no choice in the matter. I bought the 2007 Chevy Aveo 5 Hatchback, manual trans with about 35000 miles on it.... It was pretty good for about a year or so. I put 53000 miles on it in two years and two months, and have NEVER had a car with so many problems. Granted, I drive a lot, but a cars transmission shouldnt go bad after 88000 miles. Buy this car an an EXTRA car. One you can give the kids to drive their friends around on saturday night or something. I still had about $3500 to pay on it, and it needed THOUSANDS in repairs at the time i got rid of it. If you drive a lot for work or something, the fuel economy is great, but dont expect it to last forever.

I have read a lot of negative reviews about this vehicle but this is one review that will be positive. I bought this vehicle brand new in Feb. 2007 with only 24 miles. I have changed the oil every or around 3000 miles. I like to be proactive when it comes to maintaining my vehicles. I replaced the timing belt and water pump at 64000 miles,replaced valve cover gasket because of a leak,new spark plugs,cabin air filter once a year and engine air filter twice a year. Replaced AT filter and about 90% of fluid,drain plug made that very easy. The vehicle has 72500 miles and still runs like new.

With 37 mpg the Chevy Aveo5 hatchback is ideal for college students who are on a tight budget. Got it as a graduation gift and have had problems with it. Back seat leg room is a little tight but makes up for it with the fold down back seats, they're great for hauling everything. The best feature of this car is the gas mileage, with gas prices constantly going up is nice to know that you can fill up (from empty to full) in $45. The interior is comfortable, great for driving no matter the trip. Does have front and side air bags, great safety for a little car. Factory AM/FM radio sound quality is excellent. Great performance for a small engine with a quick pick-up. Great car for any age.
