Sonic Boom by North Star on 10/30/2012. Trim: 2013 Chevrolet Sonic LTZ Auto Sedan, Owned less than 1 year.
Pros: The car is very well built and has been trouble free. It is a fun car to drive and is quite peppy with the 1.4L turbo engine. The fuel economy is in the mid 30's. We love the unique styling of the car and appreciate its smart use of space. We considered many other compact cars and each time the Sonic came back as the best value for our money.
Cons: Nothing really but if I had to be picky I suggest adding four wheel disc brakes on the LTZ model.
Overall review: No regrets on buying this car as its combination of styling, fuel economy, features and "fun to drive" factor is hard to beat. The build quality of Chevrolet cars is world class competitive.

Super "Sonic" Transportation by dbmomof3 in San Diego on 01/06/2013. Trim: 2013 Chevrolet Sonic LT Auto Sedan, Owned 1 year.
Pros: I just love my new Sonic. I walked into the Chevy dealership to buy a used 2010 Malibu having spent weeks researching cars but once I saw the Sonic & took it for a drive, I was hooked. From the shimmering crystal red color to the 1.4L turbo engine, the Sirius satellite radio, mobile Bluetooth, USB port, OnStar turn-by-turn navigation & crash response (although with 10 airbags I wasn't too concerned about crashing) I loved this car. And that car can boogie. I was on the freeway & looked at the very large odometer numbers (which was a plus for this Baby Boomer) & I was doing 95 mph uphill. Despite its size, there is plenty of legroom, headroom & a large trunk. And the mileage is fantastic.
Cons: There is nothing about this vehicle I really "dislike". But as someone else stated earlier, it is difficult to see out the rear window when you are backing out of a garage or parking spot and that is because the backs of the front seats are too high and you can't see over them so you have to look around them & that's a little awkward. But it's really not that big a distraction.
Overall review: This is an excellent car at an affordable price with a lot of the bells & whistles that usually only come with luxury cars. It has style, comfort, practicality, safety, economy and state of the art technology. I love having the controls for the radio stations, the sound volume for the stereo, cruise controls and being able to use the mobile phone without taking my hands off the steering wheel. Can't get much better than that in my book. When I was a little girl I always wanted to "see the USA in my Chevrolet" and now I can. Thanks Chevrolet!

fast, fun and a great car for your kids and commuters to drive by Mark Trent Utah on 05/09/2013. Trim: 2013 Chevrolet Sonic LS Manual Sedan, Owned less than 1 year.
Pros: On the open road the car holds it's own. the 5 speed shifts nice and tight. The motor runs quite and strong. 39 Mpg but only with good synthetic oil like mobile 1 in the motor. The seats holds a Fat man well with room to move and control the car.
Cons: If your a driver that uses the hand brake you will find that getting to the seat belt on the driver side is impossible its totally blocked. lack of cruse control; I feel it is an option no car should ever be without. The RPMs run hi at 75MPH close to 4000. why no 6th gear to relax the motor.
Overall review: fast, fun and a great car for your kids and commuters to drive. Even large people will fit in this little car take one for a run.

Great, fun to drive with all the goodies of a more expensive car! by Alan, Shawnee Ok on 01/06/2013. Trim: 2013 Chevrolet Sonic LT Auto Sedan, Owned 1 year.
Pros: I love my Sonic LT sedan. XM radio, bluetooth, everything a much more expensive car would have and I still get 34-36 MPG on the highway. Great handling, great acceleration, fun to drive.
Cons: Cup holders could be in a better position, you almost have to reach back if you have a drink in the cupholder.
Overall review: Great little car with fantastic gas mileage

Team Chevy by CalFash on 12/31/2012. Trim: 2013 Chevrolet Sonic LTZ Auto 5-Door, Owned less than 1 year.
Pros: I just purchased this car brand new, my very first new car and I LOVE it!!!! It handles amazing, very sporty and fun and even though i was hesitant about a 4cyl (i have a bit of a lead foot) the turbo engine definitely gives me the get-up-and-go I desire.
Cons: None so far
Overall review: Overall I am completely satisfied with my choice.
