The hands free elements on the steering wheel is great.

I like that my car is small, good on gas and has plenty of legroom in the back for my son who is only 14 and 6'2''. I do not like that it can only fit him and a car seat for a baby and a front passenger. I do not like that when going uphill with a fully loaded down car it has no power to climb. I like that i have a manual shift and i like that it has a ton of air bags (it is why i bought it for all the impact protection and gets good in town gas mileage) i love how it tells me my tire pressure is getting low and i love the onstar and bluetooth connection. I got the one without a back up cam, but my friend has the same car that has the backup camera. I do not think i like having the camera because it makes me feel lazy and not want to check my surroundings as much.

- Heather G

Great city car, easy parking.

This is a basic car with a minimum of bells and whistles. I like the gas mileage I get on the freeway, it is easy to park and drive, it is a bright red, drives smoothly, easy to get in and out of, is 5 star safety rated. There are some visibility problems, I removed both headrests from the back seats because I couldn't see out when in reverse. Also, there is a rather large blind spot in the driver's seat out of the front left window due to a thick black trim. I like the fact that it runs with the headlights on and then automatically turns them off when I park. I ran the battery down in other cars because I forgot to switch off the headlights.

2015 sonic the best Bluetooth car you can possibly get your hands on!

I love my car my car has never given me problems in the past four years that I have had it. Just last week September 15 my battery went out which is fairly well knowing I have had my car for four years. I love the fact that my car is completely hands-free with Bluetooth I do not have to worry about picking up my phone because once it rings it rings directly to my car. I find my car to be a very safe, I do not even have to take my hands off the steering wheel to change the radio which I love very much because it is always safe to keep two hands on the steering wheel.

- Marshy F

If you commute, this car is for you.

The best thing about the sonic is the remote start. I can start my car from anywhere within reason and even warm it in the morning. I also really like the gas mileage. I have only owned Chevys and they have both been great gas savers. Also, within the 3 years I have had her I haven't had any major issues. I have only had to replace the battery and of course maintain my oil changes. The one thing I do not like about this car is the lack of space in the back seat. It is very difficult to travel with a car-full of people and everyone be comfortable for the whole trip.

- Vanessa S

The interior is very spacious it is a really maneuverable car.

This model is very comfortable and easy to drive. I really love how it connects to Bluetooth automatically once you step into the car. It is very small from the outside but the interior is really spacious you honestly can park anywhere. You can turn the car on from inside it stays on about 10-15 minutes and once you step outside you are ready to go. This is really the ideal car for a teen that is just starting to drive because it is small and very easy to drive. It has really been the best decision I have made it was totally worth it and I really recommend it.

- Jessica S

It is very dependable. My family is always going through vehicles but not me.

My car is very reliable. It will always tell me if there is something wrong. I wish it would show me the air pressure in my tires whenever I want and not just when it is low. I like that it will show me approximately how many miles I have left before I go empty. A lot of dirt sticks to the carpet material. Collects a lot of dust. Wish it had a CD port. I do not know how to add apps onto the system. Wish it will tell me if my battery is low. Wish my car would hold more gasoline. I love the arm rest. Wish it was a little bit bigger, I can barely fit a car seat.

2015 Chevy Sonic Review...

The Chevy Sonic is a great used subcompact car. Available in sedan and hatchback body styles, the Sonic impresses with its smooth ride, athletic handling, decent gas mileage, and zesty pickup from its optional turbocharged engine. The Sonic also offers advanced safety features like forward collision warning, which isn't common in the class. Factor in user-friendly controls and roomy seating space, and it's not hard to see why the Sonic ranks highly in its class. That said, its predicted reliability rating is good for the industry.

- Jenn P

Dependable, reliable Sonic.

This car is perfect size, smooth driving for long car rides, good on gas mileage, really like the steering, seats are not the most comfortable for long car rides. Set up OnStar services for free with car purchase, love getting monthly emails about when my car needs servicing, screen is very large nice for Audio, seems like it should have a backup camera, although can see a lot from behind because small car, a backup camera would be helpful, had the car for 3 years and has been very reliable and has not had any problems.

- Mer K

Chevy sonic is a great and reliable car.

Problems: short, so sometimes seeing particular signs can be difficult (but I am also a short person). Performance: love the turbo engine! Reliability: very reliable car as long as you take care of it. I have never had an issue with the engine or transmission and have helped many friends when jumping their own car. Comfort: fairly comfortable for a non-luxury vehicle. There's more room than you think. Features: I do wish there was an in-built navigation system, but other than that, it has everything I want and need.

- Kristen L

2015 Chevy Sonic: great to get around town, terrible for snow.

The Chevy Sonic is a great little get around town car. The gas mileage is amazing. This car can get right up to speed with no problem and is small so it can fit into those tight parking spaces if needed. Unfortunately, this car was not made for snow. It is very light weight which causes it to slip even in good weather conditions for snow. I have caught the car sliding on gravel before while making turns in other seasons. This car also does not hold a lot since it is so small.

- Tricia C

Chevy sonic: pros and cons.

In general, the car runs fine. There are no issues that I have had so far. The car was purchased as used through the dealer at 15000 miles. I liked how the car drove, but I was a bit concerned about the smallness of the car. As of right now that is still the only problem that I have with the car. With my growing family, it would have been wiser to get something else. And as of today, I have to change the oil for the very first time at nearly 4500 miles driven since purchase.

- Amber G

The car has Wi-Fi, which is great for road trips!

My favorite feature about this car is the gas mileage and reliability. After having the car a few months though, I realized I should have opted for an option more comfy and with more space. I have recently gotten married and my husband is almost too tall to drive it comfortably. I also have had my dashboard speedometer screen malfunctioning. I have taken it to my dealership twice now to be replaced because the screen started dimming badly. Overall, it is just an okay car.

- Rebekah M

Affordable features. This car is great on reporting maintenance tasks.

I was afraid to buy an American car but Chevy has not disappointed me. Everything on it is working great. The only problems I have had were the unavoidable ones that come from accidents/damage by others. All I have really had to do since buying it is change the battery. You get maintenance reports to email that tell you about tire pressure and oil, which is a helpful reminder. Runs great. Just as comfy overall as any Corolla I have owned.

- Joshua A

If you are over 5'8" the car might feel kind of small.

Love our Chevy Sonic. Great on gas, decent enough size for two adult and two children, or two large dogs but not both at the same time. Trunk space is adequate, car handles well. It is not a speed demon but it is peppy enough, especially with the six speed automatic. Haven't had any major issues with the car, just regular oil changes and keeping gas in the tank! Been a great car!

- Joshua B

I really like that this has the ability to turn on the engine prior to getting it, but I wish it would turn on the air or heat.

It's a reliable vehicle that gets good gas mileage on trips; however, the miles per gallon is greatly diminished in the city. Also, the vehicle sits rather low. The front side edge has been scraped a number of times while curbside parking. When I park at home in a driveway that sits on an incline, the vehicle scrapes. I can't back in because it scrapes worse than just pulling in.


You can make voice commands

I own a 2015 Chevy sonic. There is a choice when you buy a sonic to get turbo or not, I personally do not have the turbo. The car comes with onstar, Sirius FM and is Bluetooth compatible so you can listen to music on your phone wirelessly or even talk on the phone through your car. The sonic is a hatchback and come with a "shelf" I guess you could call it for the trunk.

- Mercedes G

Unique and reliable, perfect for a commuter!

I drive the hatchback model, which I love, because the bottom part of the trunk lifts up for permanent storage space, and I can lower the seats for even more storage. It gets great gas mileage, and I drive 45 minutes daily to work. The seats are comfortable, and the heated option is incredible. It is really reliable and I have never had any significant issues.

- Katie K

The size is probably my favorite thing about my vehicle.

The Chevy sonic is one of the best cars I have ever driven. It is the car I took my driver's test in and I am so glad I did. It is compact size makes driving a lot easier and parallel parking a dream. The backup camera is extremely helpful when you are in tight situations, and the my link radio is the perfect radio for me. 10/10 recommend this model.

- Danielle B

My 2015 Chevy sonic. Nice car you can zip around in.

My Chevy sonic is a 2015 hatchback. It was 2 years old when I bought it from a dealer. Fun to drive. Good pickup. No problems yet. Got it because I wanted a hatchback. Serves the purpose well. Only wish my model had the backup camera. Has a secret compartment with a USB port where I can plug in my music. Has a CD player. Very satisfied.

- Lisa C

Overall it's great, but before you purchase it beware of winter driving with it

I love my Chevy, maintenance is so low and the engine and electric workings are all in order. However, it's awful in the winter time. The car is way to low and to lightweight to get and traction in the snow. It doesn't matter how great of tires are on it. With that being said overall it's amazing. Could have better stock speakers

- Brittany H

Affordably priced, great gas mileage, and it is cute!

I have had absolutely no problems with my sonic. Great gas mileage. Rides comfortably. It receives good crash safety ratings annually. For a small car, it has great headroom and legroom. The exterior style is very clean, and should appeal to most buyers looking for a comfortable, stylish, affordable, safe, economic vehicle.

- Lynne C

Nice overall vehicle, smooth ride.

Performance is good, though I have had electrical problems this past few months, the car has been good overall, like the body style and is decent in gas mileage. Although too small for my individual needs it has enough room when putting the back seats down to put whatever basic things you may need for travel or any outing.

- Roxanne P

Gm concerns and weird electrical issues.

It seems like gm has a lot of small electronics issues. Sometimes my media screen in the car freezes for a couple days. Also I have a weird issue that happens once in awhile where when I am fully stopped the vehicle will stutter and stall. I believe it is a fuel injector replacement issue but the car only has 55k miles.

- Mark R

Great starter car for anyone but stay on top of the car maintenance.

It is great but the one I got has issues. Be careful when buying used. It is very stylish and makes me feel happy to drive it. I think that it is a very safe car and drives nice. Great car for a college student and affordable on gas. This car is relatively easy to fix and many people are able to get the parts quickly.

- Brie K

Reliable. Hardly ever any problems.

I really love this car. It is very reliable and gets great gas mileage. The tank is also small, so when you do have to get gas, it does not cost much. I absolutely love the USB port in this car that allows me to listen to my music. The only thing I would change about this car is the size. There is not a lot of space.

- Joanna M

This car is easy to drive and has great gas mileage, I would recommend this car!

Problem: everything is electronic except for the windows, you manually have to roll up and down and I find that annoying. And if you do not have your seatbelt on before turning on the car it will beep very loudly until you turn it on. Performance: awesome!! Great gas mileage as well. It is reliable and easy to drive.

- Jessica A

Smiling while driving in my sonic.

Pretty reliable. Good gas mileage. Ac blows really cold. Seats fold down which allows a lot more space than you think. Affordable maintenance. Radio functions easy to navigate. Bluetooth easy to use. No CD player. Had iPod jack. Interior easy to clean. Easy to check coolant and oil. Replacement parts pretty cheap.

- Kay I

2015 Chevrolet Sonic hatchback.

The car drives really smoothly. The brakes are not overly sensitive. It has a surprising amount of room considering the size. I personally have a hatchback, not the car, so I can fit quite a bit in the back. I can easily drive at least 3 hours without hurting. I have not had any problems with the car so far.

- Amanda P

Great car! Convenient controls.

My car is fantastic! This seats are comfortable. The controls on the steering wheel are very convenient for changing the radio station and volume. It comes with OnStar for the first few months, which is pretty nice. It looks sleek and beautiful. You can also sign up for Sirius XM radio, which is very nice.

- Katy A

The reliable Chevy sonic!

My 2015 Chevy sonic is extremely reliable. It gets great gas mileage and is easy to park virtually anywhere. The only downfall is that it is a very small car, but that is expected According to its design. This vehicle has not given me any major issues, and therefore, the maintenance cost remains very low.

- James H

Outstanding gas mileage and low maintenance! I.

Do not like cramped interior or the cramped dash. The wipers are annoying as you automatically pull on them instead of using the shifter on floor. There is no key hole in hatch so must unlock entire car for access. Seatbelts are tricky as you have too reach pretty far back. Brakes seem extremely touchy.

- Melissa S

I love this car! The radio is amazing!

I have never had problems with it! Drives great, easy on gas, cute, and has all the gadgets!! My daughter can comfortably fit in the back in her car seat. Handles weather very well, easy to work on too! It also has a lot of storage for luggage and such. I just feel that the parts are very expensive.

- Heather T

It is a 4-door sedan with 5 seats.

The care performs really well. It is spacious but still compact. Comfortable to drive long distances. Plenty of trunk space. Nice leather seats. I enjoy the touch screen. Heated seats are a plus. Never had a problem with its reliability. Remote start works great. Easy to fix. Great gas mileage.

- Claire B

The reliability of a Chevy.

My Chevy sonic is dependable and affordable. I am a single mother of 2 and rely on my Chevy sonic to take us to and from where we need to go. The upkeep of my sonic is affordable, any part replacement I have had to do over the years have never left me broke or disappointed I chose a Chevy.

- Lee C

The Sonic is a great car. Very dependable.

I have had no problems with my Sonic. Great car. It has been very dependable. It has had great gas mileage. Very roomy interior for being a small car. The car comes with a lot of extras at a affordable price. It easily maneuvers through traffic. It's easy to park since it is a compact car.

- Angie C

Chevrolet Sonic is a good safe choice. It is very easy to drive since it is on the smaller side.

It really doesn't have any problems. It is very reliable. I've never had it break down on me. I wish there was a little bit more room in it but that's alright. I like small cars and it's fine when it is just my husband and I. Getting our daughter out of her carseat is tough in this car.

- Haley W

This car is good and reliable and has given us little issue.

This car is great, however having a small child the car seat is too big for the car and it is hard to get our stroller in and out of the back. It does not have backseat ac which has been a little rough. However it runs well and is an overall good car, I just wish it was a little bigger.

- Emily G

A simple review of my sonic 2015 a-reliable family car only if you issues.

It is a good little everyday vehicle. Easy on gas a good little grocery getter. I have had a few issues with control panel button sticking and had to have the pump the it shoots windshield wiper fluid fixed. I would probably recommend for single people not necessarily a family vehicle.

- Arthur C

It's smaller than it seems on the inside, but it has great handling on tight turns and corners

I love the trunk space! I can fit my stroller in there and still have plenty of room. Unfortunately if I have a car seat in the back it's very difficult to have another adult ride in the front seat with me. This car is definitely most comfortable for shorter adults with no children.

- Crystal E

This car is very reliable. It spacious, comfortable and easy to navigate.

It is a comfortable ride for a family of five and is very sleek. Although small it offers plenty of trunk space for groceries or whatever else. It is a little short but the smaller the car the more places you'll fit to park. Especially living in or around Seattle this car is a must!

- Eliza W

My thoughts on the Chevy sonic.

I haven't had any major issues for as long as I have owned the car. It is a solid compact car with good gas mileage. My favorite feature is the Bluetooth radio and integrated USB and auxiliary port. It is not the fastest car, but that is to be expected with a four cylinder engine.

- Tracey R

Reliable vehicle that is good on gas.

There is nothing wrong with my current vehicle. I like the way it runs. It is really good on gas. Reliable car. Small fender bender and you can hardly tell. I don't know what else to say. I don't know what else to say. I don't know what else to say. I don't know what else to say.

- Jennifer M

Sonic; the ultimate compact vehicle.

Overall the sonic has been reliable. My only issue was with an update that was required. The electrical was acting strange. The interior lights would stay on after the doors closed and then turn on randomly while driving. The car is comfortable enough for long trips and is great.

- Sabrina C

Like hands off phone, I can now speak on phone. Also it has voice control.

Love my car never have to worry about lights always on until car is turn off, drives well seats are comfortable haves Bluetooth for hands off phone only think I don't like is it is low on street sometimes have a hard time in snow and driving down driveway very low to the street.

- Sandra W

It is small and red, light and compact, but roomy on the inside. I like it.

It is a bit small and if something that smells bad is in the car, it does not leave the air conditioning vents for a long time, but it's very cozy and if you put the back seat down, you can fit almost 7 people for fun compact road traps, but do not buy if you are claustrophobic!

- Sarah T

New and improved speedometer.

I love my car. I always get compliments on the speedometer because it is different than other cars. I do not like that there’s only an arm rest on the driver side I think that is a “Chevy thing” but no not a fan. I like that it has an AUX compartment and a CD player.

- Yasmin O

Is a small car, it has a lot of space and it does not consume too much gasoline.

My little Chevy is a really comfortable, spacious car. The engine and the transmission are long lasting and it doesn't require much maintenance. I don't spend too much money on gas since is a 4 cylinder engine. The seats are easy to clean, it is very modern and reliable.

- Valentina P

My car is perfect for my dog and I!

My car is convenient for me and my dog! It is great and reliable. I have only had one issue with it and it was due to the purge valve, which I believe I could have prevented by strictly using premium gas. I would recommend this car for a tiny family, or single person.

- Autumn T

Chevy sonic the highs and lows!

I have not had any problems with my vehicle. I love the seated seats especially in the winter. My Chevy sonic is really good with gas. The car has rear camera when you reverse the car. The is car small 4 door, with a small trunk. I wish the trunk was a little bigger.

- Harris C

Great car very dependable.

I love my car it always gets me where I need to go it saves me a lot of gas money and I fell safe driving it . Its is small so it is easy to park anywhere and I've never had any issues with it not even in winter when I've had most of my accidents with previous cars.

- Brenda O

Reliable and great mileage.

It is a great, small compact car. I use it only for my commute to work. It gets great mileage. It is been very reliable with regular oil changes. It has also surprisingly been great in snow. I live in the Midwest and the traction has been good for such a small car.

- Frida R

Affordable, reliable, with very little to complain about.

Reliable, good on gas, comfortable, good mileage, easy to use features, sits low to ground so it is easy for things to get under and damage interior parts, front bumper scrapes ground when approaching an incline at a certain degree, affordable, not good in winter.

- Cheyenne W

Fast, fun to drive, and reliable! You won't find better value for your buck!

This is a great car in terms of handling and maneuverability, as well as its ability to maintain a steady gas mileage over different road surfaces. I haven't had any significant issues with the vehicle, and the insurance coverage is not terribly expensive either.

- Colby B

It has great gas mileage so therefore it is great for long trips/traveling.

I like how it looks, and the flat roof surface is perfect for me because I wanted a car I can put a kayak rack on. It is reliable and easy to maintenance. Cons are: it has a small engine, small amount of storage/trunk space and it shifts gears pretty harsh.

- Matt O

Poor winter driving, please read me

No a very good vehicle for New England. Very poor traction on the snow and just a dusting of snow the traction is very poor. The stabilitrak does not help at all in winter conditions. I would not recommend this vehicle to any that deals with winter driving.

- Jonathan N

Small easy great overall quality Chevy.

My vehicle is great because it is compact and easy to maneuver especially in cities where you have to find street parking. Gas is very affordable to fill tank. I wish there was more space in the back seat for passengers but it is not often that I have any.

- Alexis S

Chevy sonic - would buy again!

It gets great gas mileage, 30 in city and 40+ highway. It has plenty of legroom. It has lots of trunk space. There are 8 air bags, so I feel safe and I feel like the passengers are safe. I have had no major issues with the car, it was purchased brand new.

- Annette M

I'll pick Toyota over Chevrolet any time

Very cheaply made. The backseat floor, feel very thin like anything can cause a whole. Within a year my windshield motor stop working. I had a basic toyota before and everything was power, decided to go with basic vehicle with chevy and nothing is power

- Janet M

Fun to drive and good on gas

It's a good little economy car, good on gas, fairly comfortable. The drivers side electric window doesn't go up and down properly and there is a phantom antifreeze leak that the radiator shop can't figure out. Those are the only issues I've had.

- Bettina G

It is a very reliable car if all you need is a car that gets you from point a to point b without all the bells and whistles.

It has been a very reliable car with no significant issues. It isn't the best with gas mileage but it's good to get where I need to go and the purchase price was in my price range. It is smaller than I usually prefer but comfortable to drive.

- Mallory G

Good quality for price such as comfortable ride and good gas mileage.

Door handle peeling, computer glimpse when in reverse, windshield always seems to have a film on it, not enough elbow room when driver and front seat passenger both reach for drink in cup holders. Otherwise comfortable ride good gas mileage.

- Christi M

Driving is my sonic pleasure

I love my vehicle. It has been reliable. It is comfortable to drive. There are tire gauges that sometimes act up in the cold weather. The only problem I have had so far is one of the tire pressure sensors let go and had to be replaced.

- Amanda M

Great gas saver for long trips. It is a great starter car for teens.

If my car was a little wider I would give this a 5. I am on the heavier side as well as my teenage daughter so it is a close space for us. The back is kinda tight for taller people as well. Other then that I love my car. It is good on gas.

- Alis J

It's appearance may be off putting, but it is a very durable, reliable car.

I like my car because it is small and easy to move around small parking lots and college campuses. It's very fuel efficient. The gas mileage is fantastic. Has very up to date technology and gets me exactly where I need to go.

- Elizabeth C

Do not judge this car by its modest size and looks. It can perform with a sports model and is roomier than it looks

This is an ideal vehicle for me in terms of performance and economy. It fulfills all my needs for transportation and is cute and quirky looking. The gas mileage and upkeep costs are incredibly low and that is wonderful.

- Rebecca H

The car gets great gas mileage.

My car has great gas mileage and has lots of room inside. The trunk space is also large which is great when I go on trips with tons of luggage. The acceleration however, is terrible and makes it difficult to drive uphill.

- Melissa R

Great value for the price.

This vehicle handles like a dream. It is a small car with cheaper suspensions, so you will feel the road. However, responsiveness is excellent, and with the Sonic's turn radius I can easily do U-turns and 3-point turns.

- Nathaniel S

Perfect small car to get around without breaking the bank

The only thing I wish was better in my car was apple carplay, but the newer models have that. It is the perfect car, small, but comfortable and very easy to get around and can still fit lots of people and things great.

- Cam H

Chevy sonic hatchback. This car has an amazing interior. It's comfortable and roomy and it's hauling capacity is great!

I love the comfort and versatility of the sonic hatchback. I live on a farm and the hauling capacity is amazing! For such an economical car the gas mileage is not as great as I would expect however. I get about 30mph

- Debbie C

It is a safe and reliable car, the design and size make it very comfortable.

I like the gas mileage I get. I like the design and size of the vehicle. I like the instant features it came set with. I dislike the color but I got it new for a good price due to hail damage so I got over the color.

- Maria R

The car feels smaller than it should. Truck size is acceptable, but for a growing family, I would consider something else.

It rides very well, but what I don't like about the car is that it is a small car. For a family of four, it wasn't the best idea to get. It is a good car, small and comfy but not what I would consider a family car.

- John W

It is extremely cheap to keep this car running and it is also not a burden on your wallet to fill the tank up when it's needed.

I really enjoy my vehicle. From the moment I bought it it has provided me with great gas mileage and is quite cheap to maintain. It also provides me with all the extras that I needed in a reliable vehicle.

- Ronnie M

The car is economic, low gas consumption. Nice performance driving.

It is a small but comfortable car, fits 4 people without a problem although 5 people gets crowded. It is easy to find parking spots. One thing that could be a little better is the trunk which is a small.

- Roberta G

That you have to weigh it down in the winter due to the light weight.

I like that it is sporty. It's economical on gas. I love all the extras that are standard for this vehicle. The only complaint I have is that it tends to slide all over the place on snowy/icy roads.

- Shannon J

It hasn't broken down on me and I've had it over 3 yrs now

My car uses a lot of gas that it's crazy...even after changing my spark plugs...it's alil rough on dirt roads, you happen to feel every bump...it's got a good bit of room inside so that's a good thing

- Jacqueline P

It is a great car for new drivers or individuals purchasing their first vehicle.

I love the size and ease of driving my vehicle. However, it is very light and tends to be tossed around or slide in snow, heavy rain or strong winds. I like many of the features too and the price.

- Brittany M

It does not stop as fast as a car will.

I like the gas mileage it gets. I like the comfortable seats in it. I like the leg room it has for passengers. I like the sound of the radio. I do not like that it does not have a CD player.

- Judy D

That it has a turbo engine, so it is speedy.

I love the gas mileage on my car. I can go on quick trips and not worry about a huge gas bill. I also love that my car was fully loaded but a decent price. I kind of dislike how small it is.

- Joshua V

Don't own an android. Don't get this car because the fan will stop working every 6 months

I do not like the fact that the radiator and AC both operate from the same fam. I love the gas mileage. I don't like the fact that it won't connect via Bluetooth for music on an android

- Justin S

Sonic Very easy to drive. Get in and out of small places.

I love my Sonic, it's small, easy to drive and get around town. I can carry all I need to with room to spare. Looks like a 2 door if you look quickly - but is a 4 door with a hatchback.

- Sandy G

It gets 35 miles to the gallon.

It has some good zip. It is very good on gas. The only problem I have with it, is it is too small. It would be hard to fit passengers in the back seat unless they were small children.

- John N

The gas mileage i travel a great distance everyday and the mileage is amazing

I own the hatchback and I love the amount of things I can fit in my car. I travel a lot for work and the gas mileage is amazing. The only thing I don't really like is the elbow room.

- Rosalind O

It is safe for a family of five. It is great for families with young children.

I like my vehicle because it handles well and has fairly good gas mileage. I dislike nothing really, except it has a pretty large blind spot. This weakness is fixed by the mirrors.

- Kristen L

It has great gas mileage and it does not cost a lot to fill up.

I love have my car gets great gas mileage. I do not like how I have one of first models so I have crank windows. But I have good electrical system that I did not have in past cars.

- Victoria M

It is a very reliable car and I can count on it to go the distance.

It's a great ride. . It has good gas mileage. I like all the features except it does not have a CD player. It is a good looking little family car. I have the sporty looking type.

- Judy D

It's great on gas and it's easy to drive. It is also has a big display for radio, hands free call etc

I love that is is great on gas. I do not like that the seats are narrower. I do love the dashboard and the large trunk. I do not like the passenger seat doesn't have an armrest.

- Rhianna D

Has many lights and signaling services to show is something is wrong.

Just recently financed a 2015 Chevy sonic and I am in love, turbo which allows car to go fast and smooth a the same time, freezing ac, great gas mileage 28 city 45 highways.

- Elena Y

Newer models are probably better since most have more safety features.

I like the green color and the bluetooth connectivity. I like being able to remotely start it in the winter. I would prefer if wifi, onstar and Siriusxm were all standard.

- Amanda D
