I've always thought it was interesting that my car has crank windows.

2015 Chevrolet Sonic LS

Overall the car is nice. My car was brand new when I got it. When my car was 2 years old the air conditioning compressor went out, I still don't currently have AC. The car also went through a period where it wouldn't always start. I replaced the battery and starter and eventually the problems stopped but I don't know that it was because of the things I replaced. My car isn't even 5 years old and I don't feel like I should have had any of the problems that I've had. It don't think it's a bad car model, I just don't think mine was manufactured the best.

- Imani H

Never buy a Chevy sonic because motors are not good alone with other problems.

2015 Chevrolet Sonic LS

I would not purchase another Chevrolet sonic because I have had problems with this car from the first month I owned it. The first few problems was minor ones like knobs falling off and not starting. Then my axles broke on both sides of front. Then he air conditioner went out and they said the part wasn't under warranty. Then one of my hoses burst. Then the motor blew and they say it's not under warranty so now I am stuck and disappointed. There has been 1 issue after another. This car only has 85,000 miles on it and not worth hardly anything.

Great Little Puddle Jumper

2015 Chevrolet Sonic LS

The Chevy Sonic is a great little car. It's high enough off the ground that I am able to see in traffic (I don't feel low to the ground). It has plenty of legroom in the back seat and a good size trunk. The hatchback has a blinder to prevent people from seeing into your trunk. It has great gas mileage. I just wish it had more speakers.

- Rhonda C

Affordable, reliable, great gas mileage, comfortable

2015 Chevrolet Sonic LS

There Could be slightly more leg room in the back and a little more power to the wheels couldn't hurt. Other then that it's a smooth comfortable drive with great gas mileage. Tires for it are also extremely cheap. Plus it's a affordable car if your on a budget this fits it. So far I've put 100,000 miles on mine no mechanical issues

- Ben M

Love it! Best gas mileage!

2015 Chevrolet Sonic LS

I have had the car for almost 5 years now and haven't had a single issue. The gas mileage is amazing! I have taken it on my trips and it was a trooper. The back could have more space, but the trunk is very big and the front seats are spacious. Even though the space is not the best, it is the best car I have ever invested in.

- Isabella D

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

2015 Chevrolet Sonic LS

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

Very dependable car with good gas mileage.

2015 Chevrolet Sonic LS

The size of the car is what attracted me the most. It isn't too big so it's easier to parallel park! The trunk space is wide enough to fit a set of golf clubs. The touch screen and Bluetooth connection are awesome features as well. The dashboard is clean and sleek and it almost feels like I'm driving a futuristic car

- Tyler W

Remote start is extremely handy and nice

2015 Chevrolet Sonic LS

Great on gas, great pick up. Large trunk considering how tiny it is. It's not a big car but, it's great for a commuter or someone on a budget. In general it's a great car for not a lot of money. Has hands free calling and iPhone connection in the glove compartment. Also had two glove compartments for extra storage.

- Julianna S

My car is a standard which isn't common anymore.

2015 Chevrolet Sonic LS

The only thing I dislike about my car is a weird fuel which people online state is a malfunction in the car. Just did some normal wear and tear maintenance that needed to be done at 100,000 miles and it runs almost like its new. I plan on keeping my sonic around for the next 5 to 10 years. Great car.

- Tara B

An eco vehicle with small interior and space.

2015 Chevrolet Sonic LS

Runs smooth and it's good with gas. When I first bought it, the mileage was at a factory level. The only issue I have with it is that it's high maintenance- it needs specialized care and fluids in order for it to run smoothly. I don't regret buying this vehicle. The vehicle suits me and my needs.

- Marsha W

Pre-owned Good-As-New Chevy Sonic

2015 Chevrolet Sonic LS

Quiet engine, smooth drive, tight turning radius, well functioning interior functions, comfortable seating and temperature control, good volume settings, digital speedometer, easy to use radio functions, lots of space in the trunk, good visibility with windows and mirrors, easy maneuverability

- Elena S

Brilliant car, great gas mileage.

2015 Chevrolet Sonic LS

This car has been more reliable than any other car I have had. It handles very well in both rain and snow. Brilliant gas mileage, thirty dollars fills my tank and lasts for the entire week. The only complaint I have is that doing big grocery trips are a bit difficult due to the small trunk.

- Kayla B

The reliability of a Chevy.

2015 Chevrolet Sonic LS

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

It is a small and compact vehicle but feels quite spacious for a small family.

2015 Chevrolet Sonic LS

This vehicle is small but durable! It has yet to give us any problems and this is the fourth year we've been driving it. The sonic has such smooth driving. It's a good small family car with good space in the hatchback to store all your things! It's by far my favorite purchase of a vehicle!

- Autumn P

Kinda small but good drive...

2015 Chevrolet Sonic LS

I love the handling, though if you do not like to feel the grip of the drive than you may not. Everything seems compact in size though the interior is spacious. The windshield gives a great view and I love the stick shift. Also, kind of got to watch the corners, it can be tight sometimes.

- Adam S

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

2015 Chevrolet Sonic LS

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

Good car for entry level car buying customers of any age.

2015 Chevrolet Sonic LS

The Chevrolet sonic lt is a very affordable for entry level car buying. The majority of buyers seem to be female because the car is very feminine looking. It is an easy comfortable driving car for anyone. Although it is a small car, it seems to be rather roomy in my opinion.

- Megan G

Reliable and great mileage.

2015 Chevrolet Sonic LS

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.
