      Chevy Aveo good or bad?

      My car just crapped out so I'm looking for a cheap reliable car. No more then $15,000 which is why the Aveo seems perfect. Is it good or bad??

      Well it has it's here and there problems because it is, well, a cheap car. But overall I'd say it is a really good car for the price

      almost 2 years and just crossed the 30000 mile threshhold, but heed the advice of changing your timing belt before 60000 miles or thats all you will get out of it.
      You can not commit crimes in a Aveo. Its just not fast enough.

      Well I wouldnt go that far, but I guess it depends on what your definition of fun is.

      But It is a very reliable car. All I did was Change the timing belt, Drive Belts, a coolant flush, transmission fluid flush, and regular oil changes. I have 55,000 miles on the car now. Everything is running like a charm.

      now I dont know if the drive belt needed to be changed but I did it while the timing was being done.

      i think its a fun car, slow but still fun to drive. i actually like the fact that it was a brand new car that i was able to buy. i like BRAND NEW. thats all im gonna get from now on i think. at least if it will be my daily driver anyway.

      the aveo is a good car, there are reports of people getting over 50 miles per gallon! *ahem xstevex and y2daniel.* treat it right and it will treat you right.

      I agree it is a fun car. Granted it would be more fun with a bit more power and better suspension. I hope to get some H&Rs this spring, Since I should hopefully be getting a decent job and the warranty will be up.

      I haven't had any major problems with my Wave. Just a minor problem with the alarm system where the switch on the hood crapped out twice. But I haven't had that problem for over a year now.

      It's an econobox. It runs and it's fun. Just don't expect too much more out of it.

      I'm on 3 years, 50,000mi. A lot of good size road trips, been on roads SUV owners would cringe at... worst problems I've had are bent rims.

      I would mention, though, I wouldn't buy one for more than $11k max, depending on the market in your area. At the $13k range, I would just go with a good condition used vehicle.


      Horsepower is how fast you hit the wall. Torque is how far the wall moves after you hit it.
