Pros: What do you like about your 2005 Chevrolet Aveo? Gas millage :), my 4 dr. sedan SVM cost $9,290 brand new.
I have 77,000 miles on it and it still runs like new with the exception of making sharp turns to merge onto the highway - seems to stop the fuel from flowing to the engine momentary.
I'm 6'2 and have plenty of leg and head room in the car. The ride is surprisingly quiet and smooth. Test drove a much nicer Honda Civic and guess what, my car was still quieter, the Honda win all the other categories.
My next small car will be the Toyota Yaris but until then I love everything about my Aveo.
Cons: How would you improve your 2005 Chevrolet Aveo? Nothing, you get what you pay for. But standard anti lock brakes and stability control is much needed on a car this small.
2005 Chevrolet Aveo Review: Stick with the basics when buying this car, i.e. 5sp manual trans no cruse no air. If you can't live without those options, than buy a Honda Civic or Toyota Yaris.
