Have you noticed everyone loves the little cute cars even if there expensive.
Aveo mpg numbers stink but, $8000 US versus $12,000= $4000 dollars for gas! Thats alot of driving. Then figure in that it gets only 8mpg more, it would take along time for payback. Lots of people are afraid of the small size. Thats one of the reasons the auto industries shy away from the high tech at times. You have to get people to buy them. Geo's were great little cars but in the end it seemed like most were sold to rental companies, because the masses wouldn't. I'd love to buy a rear totaled Aveo and make it a 3 wheeler get rid of the 800lbs of LAWYER weight and see what would happen. But dreams usually get me in trouble.
