She May Look Beat Up, but She Always Shows Up

2014 Chevrolet Sonic LT

The particular model of my car is very basic with modern features. The speedometer is digital which I love and also has XM radio and OnStar. Unfortunately the car is much smaller than I anticipated, for me alone it's perfect, unfortunately when baby number one came along, car seat placement became a test and trial technique. Unfortunately it was impossible to fit a rear facing car seat in the vehicle without moving the front seat all the way up, which is not convenient or comfortable for whoever is sitting in the front seat. Even in a forward facing car seat, my daughter's leg room is limited. The car is great on gas however to accommodate the great gas mileage they had to sacrifice the integrity of the car body. I have never in my life seen a vehicle dent so easily. There only other inconvenience I've noticed is the oil filter. Most service centers don't carry this particular model filter on hand, and have had to wait over a week for the oil filter to be ordered in order to get an oil change. All in all however the car does is necessary means. My Sonic runs like a champ and I've had little maintenance issues with the engine, and it drives/rides well.

Inexpensive, reliable, and cozy

2014 Chevrolet Sonic LT

I drive the basic model of the vehicle. It has a manual transmission and manual windows and the most basic radio option. There are no bells and whistles which made the car very affordable and the most attractive option. It has run well since I purchased it. When I purchased the vehicle three years ago, there was around ten thousand miles on it. In three years, I have added almost a hundred thousand miles. I have not had to do many repairs to the engine/under the hood. The repairs I have had to do under the hood have been inexpensive and simple enough that my husband could do them instead of taking the car to a mechanic. However, I have had to make several repairs to the wheels and tires. The wheels have gotten easily bent and I'm not even sure what's causing it. This means I have also had to replace tires several times. The vehicle is comfortable because I am a small person and I don't usually have to transport many items. The only thing I normally have to transport in the vehicle is groceries and I have plenty of room for that.

Versatility in an everyday driver.

2014 Chevrolet Sonic LT

I really enjoy this car for an everyday driver. It's fuel efficient, so I do not have to fill up as often. It's also very versatile. I live in a central location, in which 20 min can put me in high traffic city or open highway. This car can handle both just fine. However, there are a few setbacks. I am not fond of the driver and passenger seat support for long drives. It forces your posture to curl your shoulders and head forward. Even changing the incline of the seat doesn't provide the support to my lower back I would prefer. Also, the car does just fine when once you're on the highway. However, on ramps can be a bit difficult. Keeping in mind the 4 cylinders, it takes a moment to get up to highways speeds. Overall for the price, I have been very happy with my purchase and the car is fulfilling my needs.

Sonic Gets Excellent Gas Mileage

2014 Chevrolet Sonic LT

I love my Chevy Sonic 4 Dr. sedan. I am short and have a hard time judging distance so this vehicle is perfect. With the turbo engine it has great power for going up hills. The car may be on the small side but has a roomy back seat. Love the trunk and how back seats fold down for larger loads. Gas mileage is about 26 mpg in town and approx 36 mpg highway. Love the 2 glove compartments, one which has the USB port for charging my phone. Only thing I.don't.like is the center console. Cup holders are awkward, right between the seats, and no hidden or covered storage. Car runs great, no operating issues. Not so hot in the winter due to the light weight. I will say this is the. Best car I have owned though.

- MARY ELLEN O

My touch screen radio is very convenient. It is small cute. And a good step up.

2014 Chevrolet Sonic LT

My vehicle gives me absolutely no problems. Everything works just fine. I love driving my vehicle. It is perfect size for me. It is a four door. There's room in my car. My car seats 5 people. Everyone fits comfortably. There is a touch screen in my car works just fine. I can connect my Bluetooth and play my music. The air works perfect. Nice a cool air. It is a great car. My driver seat window is automatic. The lights are automatic. My car has a button to start my car. To get my air cool before I enter my vehicle. I can switch into manual. My gas is about 25-35 to fill up depending on gas prices. The smallest amount of gas I put in was 20 dollars to fill up. I got lucky.

Great car for moving, has lots of extra space and really smooth ride

2014 Chevrolet Sonic LT

The ride of the Sonic is really smooth. It comes with a hatchback option as well as a regular car option, I have the hatch back. It is much larger than you'd think, and I could fit 3 of my four dining room chairs inside the back with the seats down, and still have room for other things. I used this car to move out of state to a new place, and it never ceased to amaze me how easy it was to pack it up and take much larger trips than I would have otherwise been able to do with my previous car. I love this car!

- Madeline D

Best turning radius out there!

2014 Chevrolet Sonic LT

It is perfect for parking in small quarters and it has comfortable seats! The safety features are as great as on all Chevrolet vehicles and even though it is such a small car I feel protected. My favorite quality of the sonic though is the turning radius. It is simple to turn around no matter how narrow the roads. While it is a small car and it can be loud when driving fast on a highway the radio and sound in the car is also great. The fuel economy may not be the best but it is still really incredible.

- Jessica C

Compact but roomy car, great gas mileage and runs great!

2014 Chevrolet Sonic LT

Sometimes I feel that the car doesn't ride as smooth as larger cars. I've also had a few little issues with the back windshield fluid, as the hose has broken and came loose, and it can be difficult to get to. But I absolutely adore my car, even though it does have crank windows and it didn't come with cruise control, it is compact but still roomy, and even though it can be a rough ride in cities filled with potholes it runs great. I've yet to have any engine issues and I love the great gas mileage!

- Jena K

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

2014 Chevrolet Sonic LT

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!

- Kevin G

Chevy Sonic; Small but reliable

2014 Chevrolet Sonic LT

It's reliable, I have had little to no issues. For being so small it is very comfortable. There is a lot of trunk space which is helpful. It rides very smooth and is very easy to park. It has hook ups for a back up cam if needed. The only issues I had were technic. The buttons on the steering wheel randomly stopped working and the screen no longer shows me the temperature. Other than that it works very well and has given no issues. It's very efficient on gas.

- Amanda A

Good gas mileage, compact, and smooth driving.

2014 Chevrolet Sonic LT

This car handles nicely, can park in small spaces, is fuel efficient, and has a nice stock sound system. However, it cannot accelerate powerfully (compared to my previously owned Chevrolet grand prix), has large blind spots, has had 2 minor engine problems within a two year span (air intake and purge valve malfunction with regular oil changes and maintenance). The car has been a positive experience to drive, fuel, and maintain overall.

- Mal K

Chevy sonic a car to buy if you are in a budget , don't expect to last .

2014 Chevrolet Sonic LT

The car is comfortable to drive short distances, so it's perfect to commute from home to work or school. Even tho, the vehicle is a 1.4 , 4 cylinder turbo engine and it's fun to drive it is not gas efficient, it provides an average of 22.7 miles per gallon highway/city combined. A corolla is more efficient with a 1.8 engine. Also the infotainment system is not updatable and the plastic that Chevy used to build the vehicle feels cheap.

- Jonathan G

Chevy Sonic Turbo Hatchback 2014

2014 Chevrolet Sonic LT

This car has been super reliable the past 5 years that I have had it! I have not had to have it serviced or worked on basically at all other than just the routine oil changes and tire rotations! It gets pretty good gas mileage so I cannot complain much there either. It is very comfortable inside and offers a decent amount of cargo room for two people if you travel. The touch screen is a little glitchy but nothing major at all!

- Whit M

The Chevy Sonic is a very reliable car.

2014 Chevrolet Sonic LT

The Chevy Sonic is a very reliable car, it's great on gas I only have to fill up once or twice ( depending on if I have long trips) a week. The car is comfortable to sit in, the performance is wonderful when maneuvering on the road. This car is very roomie you can fit so much into this car. The only problem I have with this car is the air conditioner is only in the front of the car and doesn't get to the back of the car.

- Renee T

Great mileage, small gas tank.

2014 Chevrolet Sonic LT

I love my car, it gets great gas mileage. Only thing I wish it had was the touch screen radio like the year prior and the years newer. I get about 330 miles to a tank, which for only a 12 gallon tank is pretty good! The bumper can also take a hit. I have been in 2 rear end collisions with my car, and barely a dent is seen. Obviously there was damage, but couldn't be seen by the untrained eye.

- Heather N

Nice, small car. Good for your first vehicle.

2014 Chevrolet Sonic LT

It's nice for a first car, small and compact but not super small. Gets up to 100mph so it picks up well. When it's really windy the car moves a lot so that's a con. Spaces are hard to clean because of the limited space. Outside shell of the car is great and very durable. Love the Bluetooth option and radio buttons on the steering wheel, makes it easy and convenient to change songs.

- Jennifer Z

I have a Chevy sonic so it doesn't have a lot of detail to it.

2014 Chevrolet Sonic LT

My vehicle is a great vehicle I don't have issues with it and it's comfortable for when we take it on long trips. I've had very little maintenance issues with it there's only a couple times I've had to fix something besides getting the oil changed. I would recommend a Chevy any time And very good reliable vehicles low maintenance and the dealerships are easy to work on.

- Cara R

Not great in snow, but reliable and fuel efficient

2014 Chevrolet Sonic LT

I bought my Chevy sonic after owning a Chevy cobalt. I loved that they both drove the same, but the sonic is much smaller. I have had to make no major fixes since I have owned the car. It doesn't handle the best in the snow, but it's pretty low to the ground, so that is expected. It's been a really great, fuel efficient car for me and will be lasting me many more years.

- Celia B

Modern vehicle that has just the right amount of built in features.

2014 Chevrolet Sonic LT

My car is very reliable. It has features that tell you when you are veering off your lane, or driving too fast so you don't crash with the car in front of you. It has USB and Bluetooth features and comes with OnStar. The seats are comfortable and it's a good sized car that can fit 5 people comfortably. I love it

- Maria T

Chevy Sonic Electric Blue 2014 LT Review is Amazing

2014 Chevrolet Sonic LT

My car is compact, but feels large on the inside. The car is made very strong and doesn't scratch or dent easily. The only main repair I've needed was to replace the radiator after 4 years of use. It is a very comfortable car with mesh seating and it has a good amount of trunk space. Good mileage per gallon.

- Emily R

Reliable car for college student.

2014 Chevrolet Sonic LT

I bought this car for my first car. I bought it slightly used and have not run into any major problems with it. I drive it about 1000 miles a year traveling from my college to my home. It is super reliable. The maintenance is not hard to keep up with and is relatively inexpensive to maintain,

- Katie H

Good size car and good for everyday travel and use.

2014 Chevrolet Sonic LT

I've had to recently replace my purge valve, apparently very common in Chevy. This causing my car to have trouble starting after putting gas in the car. Also have problems with my AC and starter at times. Other than this the size and comfortability is great and a good car for my age and need.

- Macy V

Sonic... Decent little car, but a few disappointments!

2014 Chevrolet Sonic LT

Pros: the Chevy sonic is a decent little car, that is good on gas. The car handles fairly well for a small car. . Cons: have had to replace oxygen sensor, mass airflow sensor, fuel purge valve, and gear shift engagement button...And this is a 2014 with just 67,000 miles and was purchased new!

- Alan F

Best car for city driving

2014 Chevrolet Sonic LT

This car is incredibly reliable. I've owned it since 2014 and had almost no problems with it since then. It gets great gas mileage in both the city and on the highway. My favorite part is how small the car is. I can park almost anywhere and this really is a great car for driving in traffic.

- Anna Y

Great Gas Saver Ever! Believe me!

2014 Chevrolet Sonic LT

it's great. I've never had a problem with it and is very trustworthy. The gas intake is perfect. Gasoline is very cheap with this car. Miles on the car are great too. Looking into car parts I found out they are inexpensive. Does not break my wallet in the near future if I need a mechanic

- austin H

This car has gas mileage I have a hard time thinking about giving up

2014 Chevrolet Sonic LT

I love the interior of my car, the size, and the gas mileage. It has maintained well being 5 years old. It is very comfortable for me, as I use it to commute to work. I had some minor issues with the radiator fan at about 80,000 miles, but after replacing it, there has been no issues.

- Kate C

Sonic lt great car for small family.

2014 Chevrolet Sonic LT

It rides smooth the speakers are great for music. It is a nice size car for small family and great on gas mileage. OnStar and Siriusxm subscriptions available anytime. Powerful engine and plenty of room to store drinks nice sized trunk space and easy to fit into small parking spaces.

- Mary H

Overall my vehicle is great. Perfect vehicle for jetting around town.

2014 Chevrolet Sonic LT

Car is very reliable. Have never had an issue with performance. Wish seats were more comfortable; long drives hurt my back. I am a short petite person, and this cat suits my body size perfectly. Older people and larger sized people have a hard time getting in/out of the back seat.

- Cassandra M

Very economical and best choice for compact car.

2014 Chevrolet Sonic LT

I had my vehicle for 5 years it very affordable and very reliable. It is great on gas very low maintenance. Just recently changed headlights I kept up with maintenance on vehicle. Rides smoothly very compact and roomy, truck has spacious room and seats adjust if u need more room.

- Angela A

Traveling in my Carolina bluebird car.

2014 Chevrolet Sonic LT

I really love the size and Carolina blue color of my car. I can park anywhere. Also I have a lot of compartments to store stuff. I have took my car camping to Colorado, Arizona, Utah. I am even able to sleep in my car. Also my gas mileage is about 30 miles per gallon.

- Renee W

Worst car I've ever owned

2014 Chevrolet Sonic LT

Very uncomfortable. The engine light came on at 30k miles with a timing belt issue. Worst car I've ever owned. It has zero pickup while accelerating and there are problems with the transmission at only 50k miles. The only good thing about this car is the stereo.

- Lauren F

the interior is different

2014 Chevrolet Sonic LT

my car is reliable. I bought it used so it had a few electrical problems. The car doesn't go fast. It doesn't have a lot of room. The gas mileage is great. The stock sound system is very clear and sounds great. The interior is different from any car I've seen.

- Ella B
