Thanx 4 the info! I appreciate it!! I dug the 4-1-1 with the new 5, and I hope Chevy improves on it soon. What did U think of the "facelift"...?
Chevy could have a real winner with the AVEO line if it only turned on to certain details that peeps want for this little critter of a machine, to keep it more of a competitor for the Fit, Yaris, etc, in the B class. Chevy: WAKE UP!

It was kind of strange that they chose to not do them at the same time. Though the styling is still very European from which it was styled in Italy, because of the new competing models it was do for some updates. It looks better but im not sure why they didn't refresh the whole car, and why don't they bring the 3-door hatch here as well. The engine in one configuration or another has been around since the 1980's. I had this engine in a different form in my 1988 Pontiac Lemans (Daewoo). They should work on getting a few more mpg out of it. In a sub-compact shoot-out that I saw on MotorWeek TV this past spring, only the Nissan Versa had lower overall mileage during the test.

Tire Pressure is recommended as 30 PSI for all. You can increase your front tires to 31.

Hi Rober4380, the Suzuki Forenza is a rebadged GMDAT (GM Daewoo Auto-Tech Korea) car sold thru Suzuki USA as a limited partnership agreement with GM. So if you decide on the Forenza you will still be supporting GMDAT with your $$. Also, I think you should compare the upcoming new 2008 AVEO HB to the Forenza and the new AVEO sedan before deciding. I think you'll change your tune - the AVEO is a far better car than the Forenza which is simply an old Daewoo car that hasn't been updated for years and years.

I have my tires at 36 PSI and found an increase in fuel economy.

Wow, 36 PSI. If you read the side of the tires, 36 is really not out of spec. But, 36 is kind of hard on the ride and my back. 36 would definetly increase fuel economy.

Like I have said in several posts. I have mine at 34-36psi as well, to get that 1-2 extra mpg! And to get a more 'German car' feel of a ride,and it feels like your driving...not just pulling the car along behind you. In my opinion. And anything to get more mpg! Geez!! The things we have to do! At 30-32 psi, it is like riding with 4 flats...to me. And the mileage drops real fast at the low 30's. But it gives you a softer and quieter ride. But I would rather get the mileage...if the darn thing would get 30+ mpg in the city, I would drop it to the low 30's.

I have seen it a couple times before. I don't understand why they don't do the whole car like the 4-door. They only did the front, back, and interior.
