I am VERY intrigued by this. That price is really high,unless the Canadian dollar is VERY strong against the US dollar? I don't know. You paid nearly $18K for a 'LT' version of the Aveo. Did you get a hatchback or the sedan? For all that extra money. Did you get any engine upgrades? Bigger wheels/tires? A sunroof?
Leather seats? How many extra HP does your engine get? We in the US obviously dont have an 'RS' version..but for a spoiler, premium stereo, and remote steering wheel controls, THAT is an RS? That is basically an LT model here, and the doesn't even include any alloy wheels, power windows/locks/theft system/ Is it an 08 or an 07? And is it the hatchback or the sedan? I am VERY curious. Any picture of it?

Pricing is all in Canadian dollars for a fully loaded LT-RS Sedan 2007 or 08 model. You can find out more at www.gm.ca and simply select the Aveo. The price isn't expensive at all considering that I priced out a similarly equipped Toyota Yaris Sedan and it was just under CDN$24,000. The pricing includes the RS package which adds upgraded 15" Hankook tires, 15" alloy wheels, upgraded 6 speaker premium sound system with sound system controls on steering wheel, rear spoiler, sunroof, chrome door handles, ipod nano, and RS badges.

The Canadian dollar and American dollar are now the same in value. There is a big controversy going on right now of why Canadian cars are so over-priced. I recently saw some figures that showed the same model Volvo was $7,000 more in Canada. Mercedes Benz was in the news yesterday responding to claims of price fixing in Canada and said that they will not charge more and will adjust any prices that were inflated. This is just the beginning as more people are coming out with complaints. Supposedly, there are many people coming over the U.S. lines to buy cars to bring back to Canada. This used to be in reverse just a few years ago but fell out of favor when the big auto manufactures here in the states said they will not honor Canadian car warranties for American buyers.

Surprised to hear about that on an 07, especially with such low miles. Replacing lower control arms has been an issue for a number of 2004 owners -- I would have figured that with a redesigned suspension, the problem has been corrected by now.
At least you're still under warrantee. Good luck.

My 2006 Hatchback is the same color blue. So you have the 2007 sedan and no automatic! My gosh, they do overprice the Canadian Aveos! I mean it is a nice looking Aveo. But not even an automatic at that price.? An IPOD is only $100 to buy yourself here in the States,did it come with the sound system? I am sure I could get that car for around $14K easily here. I hope you enjoy your car. It is beautiful.
But I think GM is taking advantage of our Canadian friends! Here THAT car is an LT,not an RS...it would be fun to buy the RS badges!! I got to try. A Yaris here is probably nearly as high here. The steering wheel controls is a nice thing to have. To bad they dont have the transmission shifters paddles on the steering wheel,like on the Mitsubishi Lancer. But I think they come with the automatic to get them anyway. Well enjoy the car,and as long as you know you got a good deal, that is all that matters.
I dont know the Canadian pricing system. It still seems high to me. But it is the newly designed sedan and 'loaded',but not even an automatic at that price to me is very high! I got mine a 'lowly' LS hatchback with just an automatic and A/C and cd stereo for under $10K. I know the new sedan has a few new things on it standard, and once you add all the stuff you mentioned it would drive the price up. But I would think $14K would be tops for me...here in Florida. Enjoy it...it is VERY nice looking! **** Where are the RS badges?? I cant find them in the pictures. All I see are 'LT' badges. I'd love to buy RS badges from a Canadian GM dealer. What do they look like??? Or where are they on the car?

Well there's the frieght and PDI included in the CDN$18,110 price and that price now also includes free sunroof. So we can subtract $1200 for PDI/Freight and another $1000 for the sunroof and the LT-RS is now $16,000CDN. The RS package adds two RS badges to the front door panels. Do USA Aveos have heated mirrors? I went back to the GM site and did some pricing. If you get an LT and add the alloy wheels, rear spoiler, cd player with 4 speakers (still not the RS 6 speaker), and sunroof the price is over $19,000 with PDI/Freight included. So it makes more sense for us to buy the RS package and get the 6 speaker cd player, sunroof for free, and stereo controls on the steering wheel (not available on LT). But yes I see what you're saying about USA versus Canadian prices, but what can we do. I think our market is very different from USA so the prices reflect that. We buy over 50% of all our vehicles in the subcompact or compact class versus just over 13% in USA (our figures are similar to Europe), due to our gas prices being far more expensive.

#61 of 83 Aveo alarm system
Sep 28, 2007 (8:35 am)
Can anyone give me details about the pre-installed alarm system on the Aveo? Is it factory installed or dealer installed?
Also, on the sedan, if you lock the doors with the key fob and then open the trunk with the key, does the alarm go off?
If you are inside the sedan and lock the doors with the key fob, can you pop the trunk from the release button?
Any help you can give would be appreciated.

I'm not sure if the alarm is factory or dealer or both. But what I can help with is this. If you arm the alarm system outside the car (locks the doors), you'll still be able to use the keyless remote or key to open the trunk without setting off the alarm. However, if you unlock all doors and open the trunk and keep trunk open for longer than 60 seconds, the system on 2007 and 08 Aveos will lock all doors as a security added feature. If you are inside the car and decide to lock with the keyfob and try to start the car the alarm will go off. You are advised by the instruction book to lock all door by pushing down the driver's door lock - this locks all 4 doors. To unlock all four doors from the inside, just pull up on the driver's side interior door lock.

"Do USA Aveos have heated mirrors?"
Yes, but only on the LT model.
