A smooth ride, that is decent on gas. At a good price.

Solid car. It had a few small issues over the first few years, but nothing expensive. The shifter button broke randomly, the gas regulator( I forget its name) broke twice. Had to get an aftermarket torque converter less than a year after purchase (paid under warranty, luckily) but it is good on gas! Also, it is higher up than most cars her size, wind gets under her on the highway. But its not bad. Overall shes good for what she is. Moderate ride, better than moderate gas. Great head room!

My compact Chevy sonic ls. The car drives great the car really hugs that road.

Sonic is a great car to drive. The only problem I had is that the tires had to be replaced shortly after I bought the car and that never should have been. And the air conditioner could be cooler. But it's a fun car to drive. The car also didn't come with a CD. Player, 15 k. doesn't include a CD player. that's total bull! Chevy is very wrong on this issue!! What can a CD player cost seriously! ! And the rear tail lights have to be real designed, they look just awful.

2014 Chevy Sonic- after 100, 000 miles.

Having bucket seats in a car is amazing. The car handles amazing and problems did not start until after hitting 100, 000 miles. Parts for the car are inexpensive but poorly made. When one problem arises, everything else breaks. Car is simple to fix with just searching the issue online and having simple instructions. Easy to access all parts. Biggest complaint when I first purchased the car was the driver's seat has an arm rest but the passenger seat does not.
