      Yeah i know. this forum helped me diagnose the problem with my Aveo. The "problem" is getting worse with every mile, lol. It handles great, it corners like a sports car and if it had 50 more horses under the hood it would be a lot more fun to drive.

      Sports car handling..absolutely! Dodging pot holes in K.C. requires nimble obstacle-course handling and good reflexes.My Aveo meets the challenge.

      Lol yeah, we have that too in Louisiana. I have found that the wheelbase of the Aveo is also perfect for straddling the growler strips coming up to stop signs.

      Yes, the driving experience in an Aveo, esp using the manual trans to wring out the best from the 1.6, 108 hp, is fun and challenging. I've owned it for 11 yrs and still enjoy the Aveo driving experience.

      Yeah it's actually fun to drive, despite being underpowered.(auto trans) I'm getting more fond of it every dsy I have it. what a sleeper in today's econobox market. it's a really well designed car.

      I totally agree! A well maintained Aveo is the very definition of a "sleeper". It got the "worst car made" award in a 2008 Car & Driver article.Some owners dispose of them for minor problems, likely due to lack of owner maintenance,. then pay big $ for a vehicle that does the same with a different nameplate and much higher $ maintenance costs.

      I bought mine in 2018 it is an 08 hatchback 5spd and had 21k miles on it. I scored it for $2100 off Craigslist. It now has 150k on it and still going.

      Great to hear! You got to be proud to own such a reliable, low mileage vehicle for, by today's standard, a back row worn & torn vehicle needing repair price. Even sweeter, some auto mag quoted that the 2008 Aveo was the worst car made! Don't believe everything you read.Best of luck for miles to come.

      I bought my Aveo August of 23í for 600 bucks. Iíve only had it on the road for 2 weeks now but I guess thatís whatíll happen when you have to replace the engine, transmission, and suspension

      You bought it low enough that you can invest some $ in new and used parts and still have a decent Aveo that will save you $ every time you drive it. Best of luck with your repairs. You don't say what year it is, but there are many Gen1 parts on facebook.Don't give up on your Aveo5. The hard part is over...you found a bargain, run with it.
