2004 Chevrolet Aveo LS
If you love your cars like the Confederate Railroad song - a little on the trashy side - then have I got the vehicle for you!
This is a 2004 Chevy Aveo LS that I bought about 5 years ago with around 105,000 miles on it. Today, it has over 215,000 miles on it, and it's still going strong. (Well, as strong as a vehicle with 200,000+ miles on it can go, at least.)
The car has always had some quirks about it, and over the years, it's developed even more. Sure, it comes with the standard features, like AM/FM car stereo with CD player, power steering, power door locks and windows, but let's highlight the more quirky features that make this eyesore "special."
Custom "Features" Include:
Intermittent Heating and AC Blower:
It's "intermittent" because you never when it's going to work or not. Most times you have to bang on the fan motor from underneath the dash to get it to blow. And believe me, it blows. With the purchase of this POS, I'll include a free hammer to bang under the dash and wake the fan motor with.
Keyless Lossless Entry:
It's keyless and lockless because the driver's side lock is, in fact, missing. No, I don't know what happened to it. One morning, I walked out to my car and noticed the lock was gone. Poof! Vanished! No more lock! However, I will say the lock is like Prego though - it's in there. I can hear it rattle around when I take a curve sharply or when I close the car door. Luckily, it has a key fob to unlock the door with. Pray to God the battery in the key fob never dies. Otherwise, you'll have to climb through the window like you're Bo or Luke from The Dukes of Hazzard. (On second thought, that would be pretty awesome.)
Synchronized Power Windows/Power Locks:
The power windows and power locks are synchronized (well, half-synchronized). In other words, when you roll the window down, the door locks; when you roll the window up, the door still stays locked. (I'm assuming this is from the door lock falling down inside the door and jacking up the mechanism somehow.) Consider it an anti theft/anti carjacking feature that your door will remain locked every time you crack your window. Don't worry though, because if your door and window ever gets completely jammed, you have the fan blower hammer with you to bust your way out.
"NO DISC ERROR" Random Music Satisfaction Tests:
The CD player will randomly interrupt your radio listening, start scanning for a CD, and give you a "NO DISC ERROR" warning. When that happens, I use it as an opportunity to see if I'm really satisfied with the crap that's normally on the radio or if I'd rather pop in my copy of C&C Music Factory's Gonna Make You Sweat circa 1990. If the auction cracks $500, I'll toss the CD in while I'm at it.
Gasoline Pump Flow Accelerator:
One of my favorite features on this crap heap is its total lack of being able to simply let me pump gas like a normal human being. You can't just insert the gas nozzle into the tank. Otherwise, the gas will overflow and go all over your shoes. No, like most quirks with this car, that would have just been too simple. When you go to pump gas, you have to twist the nozzle completely upside down to get it to flow properly into your gas tank and not back flow into a puddle at your feet. And yes, it looks as ridiculous as it sounds. On the positive side, since the nozzle is upside down, gravity helps increase the speed of the flow of gas by I'm sure .8 of a second.
Missing Passenger Side Mirror:
Well, it's not entirely missing. It's in the trunk. You can have it. It got ripped off of the passenger side. But you don't *really* need it if you think about it. You have the driver side mirror and the rear-view mirror, too. That's two great mirrors you still have, and most people only have two eyes. With two eyes and two mirrors, how many more mirrors do you need? So yeah, quit complaining. You have plenty of mirrors here.
Dual-Purpose Body "Mods":
The mullet of car features. The driver side is in great, practically mint condition. However, the passenger side of the vehicle features an array of scrapes and dents - along with the missing passenger side mirror and dented area from upside-down gas-pumping. These scrapes and scratches give the vehicle just the right "broke but don't care" debonair, but only on the passenger side. That said, depending on where you're headed, this vehicle always has you prepared. If you're meeting a client at a nice restaurant for dinner or drinks, park with the pristine driver's side showing. If you're popping over to the trailer park to hang out with an old buddy to drink some PBR's and down some Tide Pods, park with the passenger side showing. Either way, you're always prepared for any occasion.
Car would make a decent daily driver (as that's what I used it for).
Or you could also use it for target practice, an avant-garde art project, a place to hide a body and dump at the bottom of a lake, or a "bash-for-a-buck" fundraiser vehicle to trash to raise money for your favorite nonprofit, church youth group, or athletic booster club.
