Im also a poor college student. I just bought my first car (an aveo sedan)a few weeks ago and felt like i got a really good price. It was used since it was a 2004 but had low mileage and got it for around $7690. I bought it from a chevy dealership who was listing $10,900. What I did was get on the internet and do some price comparison for the same make and model i was looking at. Found some other local dealers who had lower price quotes and printed those off, and just brought them back to the chevy dealership. They will do just about anything to keep your buisness so they dropped their price to match really quick. But educate yourself...do a lot of research before you buy. Print off alot of varied price quotes from around your area. I love the car, it was easy on my wallet, it drives great for 22,000 miles (i like driving alot) and its gas is pretty fair, specially for the price i paid for the car
I do have a question for others though. Does anyone else have an issue with the seats? The foam seats were not as absorbant over lond distances as i thought. I put a pillow down and that took care of the problem but was just curious if anyone else felt the same? Still a great car though!

#342 of 1655 adaptive shift control logic?
Feb 17, 2005 (10:50 am)
I've seen mention of the "adaptive shift control logic" that is integral to the Aveo's optional automatic transmission, on GM's site as well as other places online. However, a mention is all that I can find. Does anyone have more information or a link to more info on this?
#343 of 1655 Transmission Issue
Feb 18, 2005 (10:25 pm)
I have 140 miles on my Aveo. I bought it with 7 miles last Sunday. Almost a week ago. Man it sucked breaking that 100 mile mark. It doesn't feel new anymore. Anyways got a question and read every page of this forum. I hear people mentioning the "kick" in the tranmsission. Is this that almost jolt feeling that it seems to make when it's kinda cold (30F) or so and you go from 30mph or so to a dead stop when it shifts down through the gears as you roll to a stop? If so I have this issue. Just wondering if anyone else has it. It didn't seem to be like that when I bought it. I'm going to bring it to the service dept next Thursday and also take a brand new one on a test drive and see if it does it to that one. Any thoughts, comments, or suggestions would be amazing.

I haven't seen this posted yet. The girl I'm dating has an '04 Aveo Sedan (I hate having the same car as her). I have the '05 LS Hatback but anyways she told me at about 15,000 miles 4 lines of her rear defogger quit working. The dealer is going to replace her entire back window now. Just thought I'd pass that along.
Her rear view mirror also started to come off. That's getting replaced too.

Yes the clock is still on the fritz. The problem is that they should have fixed it the first two times and that doesn't seem to happen? I wonder how much more time I will need to spend chasing after incompetent GM people, they mean well and all but....??? Not impressed. Fixing the problem is more costly right now and I have no idea, why they cannot say it straight?
Did anybody know the KM/MILEAGE on their car, I'm still wondering if I'm getting good mileage or not, it seems like I'm always at the pumps, and certainly before the meltdown I was, do you get reimbursed for that, NO way!

my chevy dealer can get me window visors for $65 i didn't know if you can find them cheaper online somewhere and if i could see a picture of them before i buy them. They can't show me on at the dealer.

#348 of 1655 Aveo,a great little car!!
Feb 26, 2005 (5:39 pm)
I bought my 2004 Aveo LS Hatchback on December 1st 2004. With all the GM discounts going on at the time, I recieved quite a good price. I have most of the options except for the sunroof. Only major problem to date, was that the clock was replaced and the optional Dealer Installed side moldings came off in the cold weather.(Chevy- Parts)I drive the car between Gurnee,IL. and Milwaukee,WI.at high speeds and the car has not given me any problems even in high winds. I believe this vehicle is "The little engine that could".

Anybody know of any video games where you can drive an aveo?...I know it's a strange question, but I've been wondering recently. -Russ
