Default Forgive me for I have sinned...

I did not post on BC.com for a while and I've thought of immortal thoughts.

Those thoughts are of a Honda Ridgeline and a Chevrolet Aveo hatchback.

I cannot help but notice how revolutionary hte Ridgeline is and how handy it is.

I cannot help but notice the Aveo Hatchback looks like a balls of fun if suspension was tightened up and new rubber on and maybe strengten the E-brake...

Forgive me

Ridgeline? oye...

New Avalanche is a way better looking truck...





Yargh :(

Honda should stick to high revving little toys like Civics..leave the trucks to the big boys.

I would definatly go w/the Ridgeline over the Aveo...IMO. I pesonally think the Aveo is just a newer Geo I wouldn't get caught in a new clown car

How safe is the Aveo?

How tall are you again?

Ridgeline specs are not shabby and I have heard one locally with not so stock exhaust. Sounded OK. I can't mentally equate Honda with Big Trucks though.

The Aveo is a rebranded Korean Daewoo. It isn't particularly good at anything. You'd probably have more fun and definately get better gas mileage driving my Civic.
