my interior on my Metro was in pristine condition....but I had noticed in some older models the dash top would fade to and get all crusty and nasty I hope my Aveo takes after my Metro.
Has anyone heard if we will get the 3-door model? I really like the way it looks and I showed a pic to my sis who is thinking of trading in her 99 Mustang for an Aveo.

Hello, I have read every post thus far and find the Aveo very interesting. I drove an Aveo at the GM autoshowinmotion.com touring car show last fall and was quite impressed. In my opinion for the money it can't be beat.
I currently drive a Chevy S10 and previously had a Pontiac Lemans (1988) that was basically an Opel Cadet with final assembly by Daewoo. From my understanding it was a Daewoo 1.6 L engine, with a German Getrag transmission. The car was a pretty descent commuter and I believe I averaged around 30 mpg all-around. I kept it 4-years but it continually had electrical problems everytime it rained. I never knew if it would start if there was a lot of moisture in the air. The ignition coil was placed in a bad area and evidently was not insulated enough from the moisture.
I originally started looking at Grand Prix's, Malibu's, Monte Carlo's, and a couple others, but I think I would like to have some money left over so its currently a decision between a Cobalt and Aveo.

I saw one of these at my local dealer. An interesting color for sure. Very 50s, as is the pastel blue. However, up close, the color has a dull metallic finish to it, making it seem it wouldn't hold its shine too well in the long run.

I saw a sedan at the dealer in that color and it looks very cool. I think it would hold up very well.

Well, let no one say I won't admit when I'm wrong.
After visiting several sites, including the NHTSA as well as the SAE (who won't tell you the color of the sky without charging you), I've found that the pressure rating inside the door is the one to use.
In fact, the NHTSA has a fun little Flash presentation about tire pressure. They also say that the tire pressures listed are cold ratings and that driving as little as one mile can change the temp in the tire. Kind of makes the air pumps at gas stations worthless huh?

The air pumps at the gas station are to get you by if you have a tire way low on pressure and to top of the tires after you already know how much to add.
You measure the air pressure early in the morning on your Aveo and notice that all four are exactly 4 psi, say 26psi, low from door rating. You drive to the gas station and remeasure the tires and now measure 31psi. How much air are you going to put in the tires? Should be 4psi which will give you a hot measure of 35psi. Even though the air you are putting in is a different temperature and the temperature of the air in the tires will change as soon as you put it in, it will come out very close the next morning to the correct value.
Like I said before, it is better to be slightly, ever so slightly, over inflated up to a few percentage with no ill effects rather than under inflated.

I am considering the 2005 Aveo LT Hatchback, and I would just like to know if anyone knows how large of rims it can have? I know that the site says that it comes with 14's, but it also mentioned the fact that the car might be better suited with larger tires/rims... let me know if anyone has customized there's and has this info....

Have you heard how the Rostra cruise control works? Please let me know!

In Europe the some Chevy Kalos, which is the same car as the Aveo , come with 15" alloys and a lower ride height. They also get a two door model. Check out Suzuki Canada Swift + site. They have a lot of items for the Swift+/Aveo/Kalos. Look up the Kalos Blue for some Ideas on custom looks... also the Kalos Dream ,which was the show car that the Aveo was based on
