Comfortable ride, few issues, reliable vehicle short & long distance

2016 Chevrolet Trax LS

The cargo area is quite spacey but the back seat leg room is sorely lacking. You could not fit 3 car seats in the vehicle either, which makes it difficult for play dates. The windows creates a weird 'waa-waa' suction/noise if only one window is rolled down, so 2 must go down and they still have to be above or below a certain point to relieve the weird sound/suction. Said sound/suction creates ear aches, headaches, and make your ears plug & pop as if you were rapidly changing elevations. The car rides comfortably and other than the occasional glitch on the computer screen, it is a reliable & consistent vehicle. Gas mileage is awesome, especially on longer road trips, which we take often. Even around town, which we use it for most often, it gets decent mileage and close to what was advertised (it NEVER gets exactly what it says on paper).

SUV crossover great on gas, not a ton of trunk space.

2016 Chevrolet Trax LS

I have only had this car about a month. So far I am really enjoying it the ride is quiet and smooth. The back up camera is great as I have to parallel park everyday. I do wish it had at least a v6 engine though. My previous car had a v6 and I feel like I have no power now. Although it is all wheel drive. Which is a huge improvement from my front wheel drive. I like the Bluetooth option, and the dashboard display is great. It is very good on gas. It gets about 320 miles from a tank city miles. I do have car seats and although it had the latch from my car seats do not sit very nice due to the head tests. Over all I am happy with it. It's a nice alternative to a regular sized SUV.

- Rochelle H

Reliable, the right size and comfortable!

2016 Chevrolet Trax LS

It's a reliable car even though it's not very spacious inside. Its my first SUV and after having it I don't think I would go back to having a vehicle it's the right size for me being that my family size its small. I like the rear camera, its has a clear view and I've gotten used to rear parking because of it. The space in the trunk it's just right. The only thing it doesn't have is cruise control but to me it's ok. Overall it's a nice and reliable car. I haven't had any mechanical problems with it, I do the regular maintenance on it of course. I would recommend it for sure.

- Sandra B

My 2016 affordable sturdy trax.

2016 Chevrolet Trax LS

I am a camper and love the room that it affords me for packing up all the equipment. The fold down seats work are quick and easy to change positions. It is great in the snow even going up steep hills which there are a lot of where I live. I do feel secure in this car in the case I did have an accident. Frame is very sturdy so I feel no matter where I may get hit as long as everyone is in their seat belts everyone should come out with little to no injury. It is also easy to strap my granddaughter in her car seat,

Reliable gas saving compact SUV.

2016 Chevrolet Trax LS

The 2016 Chevrolet trax is a compact automatic SUV that uses unleaded gasoline, it gets good gas mileage and does not cost a lot to fill it up. It comes with remote locks, rear back-up camera, folding side mirrors. The ride is nice and smooth, comfortable seating. The trunk has a cover so if you have items in there they're not exposed plus you can let the back seats down to have more room in the trunk for larger items. I just love my Chevrolet trax!

- J T

Perfect small SUV for the young adult

2016 Chevrolet Trax LS

The only issue I have found with my vehicle is that it does not have cruise control in this specific model/year. Other than this I have found that this is the perfect vehicle for me. It is small yet very spacious inside and it drive beautifully smooth as well as having great mileage! If I were to need another vehicle for whatever reason after this, I would get another Chevrolet Trax without hesitation.

- Kristina J

It gets the best gas mileage out of any vehicle I have ever had.

2016 Chevrolet Trax LS

I really like the car a lot. It gets great gas mileage which is a big selling point. Even for a four cylinder it has plenty of set up and go. The only problem I have is that it's not roomy enough. I am comfortable in the front, but passengers in the back seat are a little scrunched and there's no real room for cargo in the back. I was used to a bit more room in my previous vehicle, a Chevy equinox.

- William S

Chevy Trax. Reliable, but does give some worries for a new mom

2016 Chevrolet Trax LS

It's reliable but very small back space for groceries and carrying baby's stroller. Sometimes the Bluetooth doesn't connect. If you go over 60 mph the rpm goes over 3000. The AC isn't very strong and neither is the heat. I bought mine used and not sure if someone ripped two of the three seatbelts (buckle not strap) in the back but finding someone to fix it has been very difficult.

- Stephanie B

Very cute and dependable.

2016 Chevrolet Trax LS

I have a 2016 Chevy Trax LS AWD, I love this car ! Got it in Jan 2019 right before the polar vortex hit. It drove like a champ, right through the ice and snow with no problem. It is a very comfortable vehicle to ride in and drives smooth. Starts every time even when it was 30 below and heats up quick. Best of all it is very good on gas in the city or highway.

- Tracey M

Great gas mileage. Drive 30 minutes one was everyday so works great for us

2016 Chevrolet Trax LS

Great gas mileage. Not as big as I'm used to to. I drive 30 minutes one way to work everyday so it's what was practical for us. Only problem we have had with this car was some sort of sensor for the radio. It would just pick and choose when it was going to work. Took it into the dealership and they fixed it right away and never had a problem again

- Kc W

Great car. Basic necessities. Miss cruise control!

2016 Chevrolet Trax LS

Since buying my Chevy Trax I am so happy! It is a good, reliable, and smooth car. Sometimes I wish it came with more space (or at least two armrests), but it's very comfortable for someone who is single like myself. I drive long distances everyday and I feel safe and I feel like it's a reliable car each time. I wish it had cruise control though.

- Bree B

Small sporty SUV, great starter car

2016 Chevrolet Trax LS

The Chevy Trax is a very reliable car. However, I have a child that still needs a rear facing car seat and that does not fit comfortably. I did not take that into consideration when purchasing this car. It would be perfect for a single person or maybe even someone with older children. It is a very basic SUV, but very dependable.

- Michael G

My 2016 Chevrolet Trax is a wonderful compact SUV

2016 Chevrolet Trax LS

I recently purchased my 2016 Chevrolet Trax used a few months ago. I like that it's a compact SUV but still has AWD. The only downfall is that the model I purchased did not come with a roof rack and I will have to get one installed to make transporting my kayak more efficient. Other than that, it's a wonderful little car.

- Katherine R

Best car features for your money.

2016 Chevrolet Trax LS

I love everything about my SUV, the built in Wi-Fi feature is amazing especially when you have children, the OnStar assistance is the definitely the best feature because there is a live person available for you with just a simple touch of a button and the price you cannot beat the price for everything you get.

- Vanessa Perez V

Comfortable and dependable

2016 Chevrolet Trax LS

We've had an issue with the switches on the door panel. The lock button and window buttons broke. Aside from that the vehicle has been great. It's really comfortable to ride in and we've had no problems with it at all. Being able to pull the back seat down and extend trunk space has been helpful with moving.

- Megan S

Performance and gas mileage.

2016 Chevrolet Trax LS

Performance is great. I love the 4 cylinder turbo. Gas mileage is good. Goes well in winter. Very plain interior. Seat are just okay for comfort. Hate that the feet setting on heat blows halfway onto your face. Does not keep my feet warm. Would I buy again. Maybe but only if it was priced low enough.

- Nic T

Good First Car for Younger Driver

2016 Chevrolet Trax LS

Brakes squeak when braking, even after taking it to 2 auto body repair shops to be looked at. Roof trim keeps peeling off, even after being replaced. Issues with radio screen going in/out with no explanation. No cruise control. Enjoy small compact feel but still considered SUV.

- Lacy L

Practical and Great on Gas

2016 Chevrolet Trax LS

Absolutely love this car! My only qualms are very superficial, such as the channel knob on the steering wheel is impossible to maneuver if you have lotion on your hands, and only one front seat has an arm rest. Other than that, it is great on gas, a smooth ride and very reliable!

- Erica L

On the right track, I wanted to spell track like the car but it wouldn't let me.

2016 Chevrolet Trax LS

What I enjoy about the Chevrolet trax is that it is an SUV that is sitting high, so visibility is great. I enjoy that it is not too big, makes it easier to parallel park it. Also it is great on the road. I absolutely love it and it is perfect for me and my little family.

- Nicole P

Great little car, but needs some improvements.

2016 Chevrolet Trax LS

Slightly to high. I have to pick it up in. Blind spot in the side hard to see to the side. Trunk could be bigger as it is rather small. Wish the wipers could be lifted up for the winter so they did not get iced down. Hard to change the wipers, complex fixture.

- Toni T

Great car, very few issues, great on gas.

2016 Chevrolet Trax LS

It has been a great vehicle so far. Only problem was needed wheel bearings at 60,000 miles. It is great on gas. Has a turbo engine so still feels zippy, not too sluggish even though it is a 4 cylinder engine. It is very comfortable to drive on long trips.

- Amanda W

Handles well with good gas mileage.

2016 Chevrolet Trax LS

Handles well, small enough to get better gas mileage but still SUV. Had over 2 years and mileage is 28 miles per gal. No problems with engine, transmission, etc. Comfortable to drive. Like the cover for the trunk area so nobody can see what is in there.

- Janice H
