2014 Chevrolet Spark Owner Reviews & Problems
Reviews For Chevrolet Spark
My spark is a cute and reliable car that could be great for first time drivers!
I love my spark! My vehicle is reliable. I have had a handful of problems over the last 2 years of having the car. Everything has to be specially order as well because my car is so small (for example, the battery). I also find that when I run the a/c, my car has trouble going. However, I feel like these are just normal maintenance issues that could be avoided with proper care, like routine oil changes and keeping the fluids full. Other than that, I love the style of my car and it is very comfortable. I especially love how sleek and modern the dashboard looks! The speakers and AUX cord is extremely helpful for long trips and super convenient for playing your own tunes, which is something I always appreciate in a car. Also being a commuter myself, you cannot beat the gas mileage I get! The car drives very well and though it is tiny, it packs a good punch. You would think that because it is so small it would be crowded on the inside, however, it is actually pretty roomy. I am tall myself and I have no issues fitting in it comfortably. The seats in the back go down as well, which makes moving things easy and makes for a lot more room than you would think. I think my car is great for young adults because it is easy to maintain, is great on gas mileage, could be use for daily or commuter use, and most importantly, extremely attractive.
The gas mileage is amazing.
The Chevy spark is great. It does not really have any 'get up and go' but it is fun to drive. Mine is a manual transmission. The car like small but is incredibly roomy on the inside. I have the very basic spark. So I do not have the touch screen rap or the option for Bluetooth. It does come with OnStar but I do not have a subscription. The Chevy spark gets phenomenal gas mileage. I filled up the tank with $22 the days ago and it is still got over 3/4 of a tank of gas. I am a vertically challenged person so this really is a great car. It is big and small at the same time. My husband has no problem with space while driving or riding.
Reliable car with decent gas mileage.
I bought my car new in 2015 (it is a 2014) and have not had any problems with it thus far. It doesn't have the pep off acceleration but it gets going well enough. It is not the most comfortable car to sit in but I like that it seems to set higher off the ground than most cars making it easier to get in and out of. I drive several miles with my job in homecare and it has been very reliable and good on gas getting at least 34 mpg with city and highway mixed. I don't like that my options are limited but it gets me from here to there without worry. No electric door locks or CD player or cruise control.
Everyone should have one We could fit 2 sparks in one parking space.
I have been told it looks like a skate on 4 wheels that was my favorite comment from someone. Other than the back thing that locks the window breaking 3 times we have had no problems with the car at all. I wish it had power seats as it is a real pain in the rear end when someone drives the car and then I get in it I wish there where some more colors like maroon, dark blue, maybe just 2 inches wider and lastly a ski rack on the top that does not whistle while you drive. Overall love it and we are buying a new one for us and giving ours to our daughter.
Cost effective, but sacrifice space.
Its primary function is to get you from one place to another. It is small. It does not come with the special feature and amenities other vehicles do. The front seats are roomy enough, but the back seats are tiny, with very little leg room. There's not much room in the trunk. It's definitely not for everyone, but the cost effectiveness in regards to gas has made it worth it to me. Basic transportation? Yes. Cheap to fill with gas? Yes. Lots of room? No. Fancy car? No.
A few problems but overall great little car.
This car is great for city driving. It gets good gas mileage and is easy to park in small spaces. It is surprising ins interior size very roomy and the four doors are great. I did have to get my transmission replaced at about 60k miles but it was covered under my warranty. Some trim between the doors also peeled off within a year of having this vehicle but other than that I love my Chevy.
Cute car. Perfect for cost efficiency.
The only issue I have had with this vehicle is that it is really too small to fit a child's car seat. I love the gas mileage, it drives smooth, and has been really easy to maintain. It feels much bigger inside than it appears on the outside. I can fit significantly more in the hatchback than I ever thought I could. It is a perfect car for driving around town or even further distances.
Chevy spark is a great first car to have for someone just starting out.
I love this car. It is my first car. It is great on gas. For someone just starting and learning how to drive I think it is perfect. The insurance is not to high and it is not overall expensive at all. It is great for just going around town with your friends. Mine holds up to four people and that is plenty in my opinion. Maintenance is not too high either. It also gets great mileage.
The engine is small so don't expect power from the vehicle.
Because my vehicle is small, the engine is small. It sometimes has issues accelerating. It is loud. The battery had to be replaced. However, this past summer, a car rain a red light and hit me, and although my car had a decent amount of repairs, I was completely unscathed. I did not even feel the impact. It performed incredibly well. In addition, it is small so it handles well.
Cute compact automobile!!
It is the perfect first car! It is compact but fits essentials. I used it to commute to and from college now I use it to get to work. The only negative I have to say is that there is a huge blind spot on the driver side window. Due to size, it is nerve wracking to drive on the highway especially during rush hour. It takes a while for the heat and air conditioning to turn on.
