It is getting close to the end of the month and the end of the model year. SO they MUST sell off their stock. Do you have the 0% interest still going in your area on all Chevys? Get that. I have a 2006 hatchback LS with automatic,a/c,cd radio,floor mats,pinstripes,basically a stripped model,14in steel wheels with covers, I got it for $10,001. But i traded in a truck and got $3,000 for it ,so i guess i paid for all the taxes and their 'paperwork' and other stealing dealers fees with that money. So it cost me in real life $13,000. But I am paying under $200 a month for 5 yrs and now i have an automatic,able to carry grocerys home,and more than 1 passenger,unlike in my truck. Which i loved so much,but the gas killed that love affair! So..you should be able to get an LS with a/c and auto for $10K -$11k out the door now. I think they have a rebate for people in the military as well!
And you deserve it. Look up on chevy.com I think it is like $500 or $1,000 off any car. So tell your dealer you are in the military to get that discount,get the 0% interest and at this time of year...you should get a good deal. I got bulldozed over..but you probably have more of a backbone than me:) Good luck!

the color you are talking about is the icelandic blue (light blue kinda color)and the darker blue is called bright blue.
i think the icelandic blue is pretty nice, seen one at the dealer and i liked it, but i am a girl maybe that explains it
the nicest one IMO is the spicy orange.

I am the owner of an Icelandic Blue Aveo Hatchback. Like you,I love the Spicy Orange and that was the one I was going to buy. But I ended up at another dealer that had this one with more things on it and for some reason,as horrible as they are as sellers,I bought it. It was the only Aveo on the lot! And it just didnt occur to me to ask for a dealer swap to get the orange one from the other dealer. But it was the same price but had 4 less items built into it. I have heard this blue called 3 different names including Bright Blue! When i tired to get touch up paint they said they go by the VIN number,and it said Bright Blue! But they also called it,Sky Blue and something else. I swear I dont know the color of my own car! The brochure still says Icelandic Blue..and while it is a more 'dull' color. It shows no swirl marks even after waxing 4 times already. And I have had 2 other light blue metallic cars in my life and they were both good long lasting cars. So..it is easy to clean,it doesnt show the dirt and in the Florida sun,it might not fade as much as the orange. So 'girl color' or not. This GUY has one and it's the only one I see on the road around me. All I see is white...and orange!!

I'd kill to have the yellow or the orange. My truck was bright yellow THAT really stood out! Even on this car it stands out. I should have gotten the orange, the yellows were all gone in the entire state. Thats how popular they are. I just went with the 'practical' side. The light blue dosen't show swirl marks from waxing,in Fla.it fades less,I hope, and it stays cleaner between washes. Boring I know . And it doesnt attract attention from cops. They will chase anything that goes 1 mile per hour over the speed limit! Even an Aveo!

I like the yellow also, but will never own a yellow or red car. they draw attention, and when you are in a pack of cars the cops will always zone in on a bright yellow or red car every time. I almost lost my D.L. because of getting 5 mph over one after another from a Red car. Never again. My aveo is the mat. black. grays whites are good also. even the pale blue. but bright colored cars and trucks and prone to get more tickets

the reson i said i did not want the yellow is that i had a yellow Geo Metro convertible in 1991 or 92 that was bright yellow. you are also right, they do get attention, sometimes unwanted. the good side is that they are really easy to find in a Wal Mart parking lot!!!
are you guys happy with you Aveos so far??
i am still debating which one to choose , the aveo, the scion xA,the yaris, the versa,the rio or the reno or wait for the new suzuki sx4 that will be all I want but starting at 15K...and it will be 1st yr on the market and i dont think i can get below the sticker by much...(same with versa and yaris)
on the other hand, the aveo i could probably get around 10-11k and same with the reno. a dealer 50 miles from here has 66 reno 2006 in STOCK right now!!!
#114 of 199 How I bought 2 new 2006 Aveo hatchbacks for $11,000 each before TT&L.
Aug 09, 2006 (8:31 am)
I don't spend much time on forums, but I was compelled to mention my experience because I was so unusually satisfied. The first thing I did was to do a lot of research on the internet into all of the 2006 model year subcompact cars in order to get the invoice price and dealer holdbacks. My goal was to buy 2 brand new 2006 model subcompacts with A/C and automatic transmission. Those were my only requirements, color, options, make, model, manufacturer, etc did not matter. I was looking for the cheapest 2 cars that I could buy new that had A/C and automatic. This research quickly narrowed the field to Chevy Aveo, Kia Rio, Suzuki Reno, Hyundai Accent, and Ford Focus. Nissan, Toyota, Honda, Volkswagon, and Diamler Chrysler were too high. I had been seeing comercials for Kia Rios, Hyundai Accents, and Chevy Aveos for under $8,000 but when I called, that was with manual transmission, no A/C (Who in Texas is going to buy a car without A/C? Temperatures around Fort Worth are routinely above 100 F), military discount, manufacturer cash back, and customer loyalty discount. Being that I don't qualify for military or customer loyalty discount, and that I want both A/C and automatic, that $8000 sale price jumped to over $12,000 when I called the dealers. So based on the dealer invoice for the above cars in my selection, with A/C and automatic, the Chevy Aveo LS with automatic option had the lowest invoice price of $12108, and with $1000 manufacturer cash back which I would be entitled to because I was planning on paying cash, brought the price down to $11108. So I emailed all of the internet managers at all of the Chevy, Ford, Kia, Hyundai and Suzuki dealers within 50 miles of my address my request to purchase 2 new 2006 models with A/C and automatic for $22,000 before TTL. All but one responded with a no sale, indicating that my price was at least $2000 too low, and that they would never sell to me at my asking price. Finally the last one responded, that was Jerry's Chevrolet in Weatherford, Texas. The internet manager said I will sell you two new 2006 Aveos with A/C and automatic for $22,000. I did not believe it so, emailed back, to send me the specs and VIN numbers of the two cars he had in mind. He responded with two new 2006 Aveo LS hatchbacks with A/C, automatic, in Victory Red and Bright Blue. I responded, to email me the complete breakdown on the TT&L costs, and if aggreable, I would see him the coming Saturday and write him a check. I told him that I was not paying for any dealer prep or other B.S., just the $22,000 plus the actual TT&L. He sent back the correct figures, I emailed him that his figures were agreeable, and showed up the following Saturday, and picked up two new Aveos just like he said and was on my way home in less than 30 minutes. He had actually had these two cars hauled in from another dealership East of Dallas. One car had 11 miles on it, and the other had 13 miles on it. Both were Aveo LS with A/C and automatic, one in Bright Blue and the other in Victory Red. I love both cars and so far am very pleasantly surprised at how well the car is put together, the interier space, and the ride quality of a bottom feeder Korean Subcompact. I am very happy with what I got for what I paid. I also am very happy with the dealership and the way that I was treated.
