MotorWeek describes the Chevy Aveo as "very successful" and "leading the way." Are we talking about the same car?

I don't normally ridicule the cars themselves in these MotorWeek videos, because cars these days are pretty good all around. But I do not think this generation Aveo was highly regarded by anyone. Just read what they say about it:

  • "Its new looks promise flare and fun, too."
  • "Audi-like drop jaw grille."
  • "An almost go kart-like amount of moderate push (in the slalom)."
  • "It should not be overlooked."

Yes. Yes it should be overlooked.

I should say that they are actually pretty hard on the car in certain areas, I'm just amazed that they found anything to compliment. Glass half full, I guess.
