how does hybridCARS obtain its reliability info
I own a 2004 Chevy Aveo. This is a small car which if everybody used we would not really need hybrids.
On this website, the "con" was listed as "dismal reliability."
My car must be a freak, because since 2004, in six years of nearly daily driving, it has had exactly one (1) problem. The extremely vital AIR CONDITIONING system failed, and was fixed for free under warranty.
In fact the only thing that worries me is that the original battery is still in there, and I am not sure when it will ever go out.
It is a small car yes. The only true "con" is lack of side curtain airbags. But this website is offering false information by citing a "dismal" reliability.
The Aveo is a small car with a 1.6 liter engine. It is not really rational to take it more than 60 mph, because of its lower mass. And considering the low price, it would have to break down 3 or 4 times more often to be considered a bad deal compared with other more expensive automobiles.
