Model Highlights

Chevy's entry level car is the Korean-built Aveo, which is available in 2007 as a five-door hatchback or four-door sedan. Base prices start at $9,995 for the base wagon and run up to $13,510 for a surprisingly well-equipped Aveo sedan with LT trim. The LT, which is not available on the hatchback, adds dual power heated outside mirrors, 15-inch alloy wheels, power windows and locks, cruise control, remote keyless entry, and a CD player. For 2007 you can also get steering wheel mounted audio controls and an available six-disc changer as an upgrade to the standard AM/FM stereo. All audio systems now include an input jack for a digital media player. Anti-lock brakes, an automatic transmission, and a sunroof continue to be popular optional equipment.

The Aveo's ride and handling are decent for a small car, and the back seat is surprisingly roomy given the compact size. Side air bags are a nice standard feature for car at this price, and the interior is better designed and executed than most vehicles in this segment.

Overall the Aveo is a good choice if you're looking for an entry level car, especially if you value quality of interior surroundings over outright performance.


Model News

Chevrolet has made significant changes to their Aveo for 2007. At $9,995 the Aveo5 hatchback is one of the lowest priced cars sold in America, while the Aveo sedan offers standard air conditioning.

Though the exterior and interior styling was redone for 2007 and the suspension was retuned, the same reliable 1.6L four cylinder engine remains under the hood. The E-Tec has double overhead camshafts, electronic throttle control and variable geometry induction are modern elements that help it to make 103 horsepower.

The Special value trim remains on the Aveo5, but is no longer available on the sedan. Side air bags are now standard for 2007.


Value Writeup

Chevy's 2007 Aveo5 Special Value hatchback remains one of the lowest priced new cars in the U.S. today, and a number of changes from 2006 have made the Aveo more comfortable than its price point would suggest. Buyers can order an LT sedan with cruise control, power conveniences, ABS, and a six-disc CD changer while keeping the car below $15,000.

Component
FUEL SYSTEM, GASOLINE

Potential Number of Units Affected
17676

Summary
ON CERTAIN PASSENGER VEHICLES EQUIPPED WITH A 1.6L ENGINE, DURING A NCAP SEVERE FRONTAL CRASH TEST, THE FUEL LINE IN THE ENGINE COMPARTMENT DEVELOPED A FRACTURE. IN ADDITION, THE CRASH DAMAGE CAUSED FOUR SHORT CIRCUITS IN THE FUSE BLOCK, THE COMBINATION OF WHICH ALLOWED THE FUEL PUMP TO CONTINUE RUNNING AND FUEL LEAKED ONTO THE GROUND.

Consequence
IF THESE CONDITIONS OCCURRED IN AN ACTUAL CRASH, A VEHICLE FIRE COULD OCCUR.

DEALERS WILL REPLACE THE FUSE BLOCK AND INSTALL A NEW SECTION OF FUEL LINE THAT HAS BEEN REDESIGNED FREE OF CHARGE. THE RECALL IS EXPECTED TO BEGIN DURING NOVEMBER 2006. OWNERS MAY CONTACT CHEVROLET AT 1-800-630-2438.

GM RECALL NO. 06133. CUSTOMERS MAY ALSO CONTACT THE NATIONAL HIGHWAY TRAFFIC SAFETY ADMINISTRATION'S VEHICLE SAFETY HOTLINE AT 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), OR GO TO HTTP://WWW.SAFERCAR.GOV.

Mfg's Report Date
MAY 19, 2014

Potential Number of Units Affected
218,000

Summary
General Motors is recalling certain model year 2004-2008 Chevrolet Aveo vehicles equipped with daytime running lights (DRL). In the affected vehicles, there may be heat generated within the DRL module located in the center console in the instrument panel, which could melt the DRL module.

Consequence
If the DRL module melts due to the heat generation, it could cause a vehicle fire.

The remedy for this recall campaign is still under development. The manufacturer has not yet provided a notification schedule. Owners may contact General Motors customer service at 1-800-222-1020 (Chevrolet). General Motors recall number for this campaign is 14236.

Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to www.safercar.gov.

Crash Test Note
Results based on a 35 MPH frontal crash and 38.5 MPH side crash. Results are reported in a range of one to five stars, with five stars indicating the best crash protection for vehicles within the same weight class. This test used driver and passenger belts and airbags.

NHTSA Rollover Rating

Rollover Note
The Rollover Resistance Rating is an estimate of your risk of rolling over if you have a single vehicle crash. It does not predict the likelihood of that crash. The Rollover Resistance Rating utilizes a "fishhook" maneuver which is a series of abrupt turns at varying speeds to see how "top-heavy" a vehicle is. The more "top-heavy" the vehicle, the more likely it is to roll over. The lowest rated vehicles (1-star) are at least four times more likely to roll over than the highest rated vehicles (5-stars).
