Yes Review Date: 23rd December, 2009 Having a terrible time with our new 2011 Aveo while driving on the slick highways here in Michigan. Both pale in comparison to the Fit with 20. For a car this small, everyone expects it to get better mpg in city use. Each time I would find one and call, it had been sold just a day or even hours before!

Despite its entry-level status, the 2009 Chevrolet Aveo offers a surprisingly high level of standard equipment, including front side-impact airbags, height-adjustable driver's seat with lumbar support, tilt wheel, interior releases for trunk and fuel door, variable wipers, OnStar and a rear window defogger.

It may have been caused by the cold ~5 degrees. From electric to electrifying, we break it all down in a concise, model-by-model review that begins on the next page. Saturday I drove the Aveo to Banff. It handled well on the highway. Where do I go that I need a big, heavy car? It handles well and easy to maintain. Shifting is a little annoying.
