      This is my new ride bought it just three weeks back , has 48000 km on the clock which is 72000 miles if i am not mistaken.

      Very happy with it , i think it is a 2008 model but i have no clue what aveo it is in the sense i see a few post saying aveo 5 and 4 .if any one could advise i would appreciate.

      She has a few extras includin electric windows, sunroof , leather seats, a/c , power steering and a tint on the windows.

      She is still riding on 14 inch wheels.

      Yeah, I think that Petrified Rabbit has it about right on the mileage, actually, if you want to convert kilometers to U.S. (statute) miles, you multiply by 0.625. Conversely, to convert statute miles to kilometers, multiply by 1.60.

      I'm a new Aveo owner myself...I have an '06 hatchback that I just got back in August.

      In the US, where most of us are, there's only the 4 door Aveo, which is just called the Aveo, and the 5 door hatch, which is called the Aveo5. If you wanted to, I'm pretty sure the 4 door Aveo could be badged as the Aveo4. You have the 5 door hatch Aveo5. There is a 3 door hatch, but that body style not available in America. And most of us here would kill to have that front end on our Aveo.
      In the end, it doesn't matter what ya call it. An Aveo's an Aveo.

      Yes, most of us on this forum live in the USA and for the US, the front end is different. Getting the parts to swap the front ends here is a major hassle involving finding someone in another country where that front end is available, who's willing to ship them to the USA. Here's the USA front end. It looks like a cute dog begging for a treat.
