The Cobalts is a pretty descent car and mileage is reported to be good as well. The model you are describing is a base model which I believe comes with air conditioning, but none the less not a bad buy.

Personally, and I say this after having owned an Aveo hatchback, I would take the Cobalt (all things/options being equal). In the long run, I think you will be happier with the larger vehicle.

Apparently it was a Demo model, or maybe a very quick repo. I got it used with only 6,000 miles yes, six thousand mile.
Chevy Aveo LT, with all the added stuff.
ABS, Leather interior, Auto, and steering wheel controls.
Checked it up on the Chevy site, though costco, and in Kelly Blue Book.
Chevy MSRP was $16380
Costco Invoice price $15464
KBB Used retail was $15100 (before TT&L)
I picked it up at Good Chevrolet in Seattle for $15,000 out the door.
Needless to say I am quite pleased with the sale..

Sounds like a nicely equipt car and you should have many years of service. Didn't you get the rebate with the car or did you go with the financing deal?

Since it was technically "used" they did the sale as a certified pre-owned.
There were no rebates or financing incentives available. (it had 6,000 miles on it)
It was the salesman's bad, when I walked in, I said "What ever i get will be $15,000 out the door (check in hand)"
He first said he could do it, then the manager tried to squeeze another $2,000 for a down payment. I got them with "The salesman said he could do $15,000 out the door. Later!"
6 blocks later, the manager called me and said "We will make it happen"
They still had to do some certified inspections for the classifications, so they gave me a Malibu to drive until the car is ready, telling me to save the gas receipts for re-embursements, and promised the car to have a full tank and be perfect.

We looked at an Aveo 5 door economy version about 2 weeks ago. The dealer called yesterday and said chevy has a new rebate of $1000.
So we get $1000 rebate, plus another $1000 for being a current Ford owner (2000 or newer ford).
I think the sticker price was about 10K
Minus $2000 chevy rebate (apparently just released).
Add tax, delivery etc.
Minus my GM rebate from our credit card of $1450.
Michigan tax is 6%
Out the door price is $7650.
So if you didn't have any GM credit card rebates, it would be about $9000 with tax, or about $8600 without tax.
I guess for a car without air, just manual everything, is it a good deal??

The SVM is a great car, if you are not needing A/C. And a wonderful value for the money. Moreover, at $7,650 plus the money you save in gas, you definately come out a winner in the end.
#163 of 199 Actually lower than blue book value.
Apr 27, 2008 (3:36 am)
We looked up the blue book retail value for the vehicle, and it was a little bit higher than the bottom line price (not counting my GM card rebates).
A used Aveo with about 6000 miles was being listed for sale on ebay for a higher price. So I think this must be one of the lowest price in the year for this model. I think we could have saved a few more hundreds if I had bartered. But I didn't feel like bartering too much.
I know that most of the time, if you bring the invoice to another dealer, he'll knock a few more hundreds off.
So folks, you can print up my post, and take it to a dealer, and likely will beat me by at least a hundred bucks. The rebate might run out at the end of the month... Or maybe not.

I have a quote from Casey Chevrolet in Newport News, VA for $14,500 "out the door" under the GM family first plan. Does this seem like a reasonable price. I am nervous about this car as I see a lot of people on car-space seem to be having problems and CR ranked it a 36 out of 100. I commute about 240 miles a week and need something reliable. My 99 Ford Escort has about 200,000 miles and has to be repaired about twice a month so I need to replace it . Thanks in advance for any input.
