  • well that was the lowest i could get them. Almost all the dealers would nt talk to me beyond that price. they would tell me to go else where. I would walk out and they would not call or ask me to come back

    I have heard of people getting it for less than that but you aren't going to get much more off of that unless there is a rebate or GM card points involved. It depends on the area. Some Toyota dealers will wheel and deal and others won't budge much. It is still a good price for a new car.

    Have fun with the car.

    Agreed. A large, volume Chevy dealer in the SF Bay Area is advertising 10 units at a sales price of $8988. I recently got a letter from my GMCard saying they would increase my GM bucks to $3K (I am currently at just under $2K). So, in theory, I could get a brand new Aveo for $5988. If I had a 1999 or newer GM vehicle, then I could knock another $1K off of that price. Hmmm...maybe I should check out Craigslist for a cheapo 1999 geo/chevy...mwuhahahhahahahah :shades:
  • I just bought a 2007 Aveo and drove it off the lot for $7000. Great deal!

    Sticker: $9950
    Minus: -$300 Dealer discount
    Minus: -$1250 Chevy rebate
    Minus: -$2000 GM Card rebate
    Plus: +$600 Aprox. in Tax, title, license.

    Equals: Out the door for $7000

    That's an awfully good price for a brand new car with a 3yr/36,0000 bumper-to-bumper, 5yr/100,000 powertrain warranty.

    Key to all this: Make sure your GM Card doesn't have a redemption allowance. Newer card accounts limit the most you can rebate on an Aveo to $1000, even if you have a rebate for a higher amount. Older accounts shouldn't have such a limit. I got it in writing from GM Card last summer that my card didn't have a redemption allowance.

    Price was good, the sales rep was a good guy, but they tried to tack on an extra $500 when I went to sign the paperwork. Luckily, I had already gotten an "out the door price" in writing (email) and they honored that.

    Car was purchased in the Dallas Metroplex on Jan. 24.

    Tip: Use the "search inventory" feature on the chevrolet.com website to track down 2007 Aveos.
  • I'm in the SF Bay Area, can you tell me what dealer was advertising that price? Mom needs to replace her car.
  • Yeah---I know the color you are talking about. When it first came out I actually called up Chevy corporate and even the customer service rep didn't have a clue about it. Seems like Chevy puts out some limited edition stuff every so often just to keep things interesting, but the problem is, you can't get any tangible info on these things. Anyway, I finally saw a good pic of one of these aveos from a dealer's website, and it was really ugly. Looked like a crayola color or something. It was pimped out though, with some fancy wheels and upgraded audio system. It was called "Maui Blue Spring Edition". This car was priced in the cobalt range, so I bet they had some trouble selling 'em.
  • The Cobalt currently has a $2000 rebate. Puts it square in line with equivalent Aveo pricing. A 4-door, 5-speed, AC/CD/MP3 Aveo costs around $12,500. After rebate, the Cobalt is about a hundred more. Aveo may also have a rebate but it isn't nearly $2000.

    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.
  • 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 :sick: . Thanks in advance for any input.

    Impossible to say with the info you provided. How is the car equipped? What options?

    It is the LT trim with automatic transmission which includes:
    AM/FM stereo with CD MP3 player and aux input jack
    Cruise Control
    Fog Lamps
    folding, power adjustable, heated mirrors
    Remote keyless entry, theft deterrent system
    Bucket Seats with adjustable headrest
    15 in aluminum wheels
    Power windows

    also: Steering Wheel controls for the audio system

    I can only estimate, since I have no idea of your actual location.

    But, according to Edmunds...

    MSRP is around 15,580. Invoice is about 14,700.

    That is before any rebates.

    Personally, I would suggest you research a few other models, such as Toyota Corolla, Nissan Sentra, Hundai and Honda Fit.

    The MPG of the Aveo seems to be all over the board by posters on these forums, and for just a little more money, you can have a larger vehicle with the same or better mpg.

    But, if you have your mind set on the Aveo, I suggest you send your requirements to 3 or 4 dealers nearby via email, and see what they offer. That will give you the best idea if the price is competitive or not.
