Love the handling and size, but had some issues internally.
2012 Chevrolet Sonic LTZ
Overall this car has been average. I have had several issues including different types of leaks from the coolant to the oil. The hose that attached to the coolant was cracked. I also had something happen to the intake sensor. This caused weird vibrations and shaking with the car. Sometimes when locking the car it wont beep so I have to open the car door and close it again to make sure it beeps. Also, the automatic shift knob broke and now the little plastic piece comes off and it wont click. . But regardless of these issues that I ended up getting taken care of, I personally like the car. It is easy to handle and maneuver. I love how small the car is and I can park it anywhere I need which is amazing when living in the city. . I like all of the little compartments in the car because even though it's a small car I can fit a lot of things. I have taken this car to music festivals, camping trips, road trips, and it has been able to fit all of the gear and luggage just fine. I have a bike that I travel with sometimes. I don't have a car rack for it so I put it in the car. When the seats are put down it fits great. . The stereo bluetooth is great. Though the stereo sound quality could be better it gets the job done. . I also really like that the handles on the back doors are in a unique place. The back seats are not too small of a space for passengers. Overall, I rate this car average on a scale because it has had some issues mechanically but otherwise, the handling and size fits my lifestyle. It can be fun to drive which is a plus:).
