The 2007 Chevrolet Aveo is an authentically miserable car. It is the first Korean car I have … no wait. When I worked for Kinko’s they had a delivery vehicle which was also a Daewoo with an American name plate. Anyway the fit, finish and engine buzz is no better fifteen years later. I am almost too tall to sit in it.

All sixty-eight inches of fury too tall to sit in a car intended to be sold in the United States. The buzz of the engine conspicuously hidden by inches of insulation which I imagine is quite flammable. The radio is very nearly inexplicable. A 1984-like three-speed transaxle keeps the engine raging at thirty.

Usually almost any car newer than Otis gets a “hmmm, this is all right”. I hope it is a slow weekend at work so I can buzz around like I have no allowed myself for a long time. Well, I’m off.
