Test comments - The 2008 Aveo saw a few changes from the previous year's lineup, including available sedan and hatchback models, standard side-impact airbags. Premium options also became available on the Aveo for the first time.

The Aveo is an ideal choice for drivers who commute. I have a 45-mile daily roundtrip commute and my Aveo works wonders. It's not expensive and gets the job done if that's what you're looking for. It has a fairly well-designed interior (I have the LT with its nice cloth upholstery), as well as an appealing exterior. Good ride quality and maneuverability provide a pleasant overall experience. I also like that the front and side-impact air bags are standard. It lacks in trunk space so go for the Aveo5 five-door hatchback if you have more cargo. My Aveo even came unexpected features like keyless remote entry, power sunroof, leatherette upholstery, and a six-speaker stereo with CD/MP3 player.
If you are looking for power and speed will be probably be disappointed. This vehicle is designed more for comfort than sporty driving. It's under-powered engine lacks refinement and pickup, but is to be expected when choosing safety or economics over speed. Furthermore, switching from an SUV to a model like this might leave you a little dissatisfied with the restricted legroom (let's just say, carpooling large groups may be out of the question). That was the case with me.
All in all, the 2008 Chevy Aveo is a fairly good find. Daily commuters everywhere should seriously consider this one.
