This Car Was Everything I Wanted In A Vehicle

by jmichaellarue from Orange County, California | January 31, 2020

Well, my Dodge Stratus was starting to go after 15 years, so I went into the dealership looking for a Chevrolet Spark (my work was able to get it priced at $10K with incentives.) The first dealership I stopped at didn't have any in stock, but they did have a Chevrolet Sonic in stock. I had a satisfactory test drive with it and, after test driving a Spark at another dealership, decided to purchase the Sonic. I am absolutely happy that I did. - I wanted a car manufactured in the US (I'm from Detroit, I can't help it.) This car was manufactured in Orion Township, Michigan. - I wanted a car to fit my drum set in. My Sonic RS Hatchback allowed me to fit my entire kit in the car (yes, I made a six-piece/nine-cymbal full-sized drum set fit into a vehicle that can park in the "Compact" spaces.) - I wanted a car that was going to have good fuel economy. This car can get 34 MPG Highway. - I wanted a car that was sporty. The turbo-boosted engine packs a punch and I wholly intend on having the performance package installed now that I've secured a promotion with my current employer. The compact size allows me to park it anywhere and the entertainment system gives me a wide variety of options (I can switch between AM, FM, SiriusXM, and Apple CarPlay with aplomb; I am never short on music selections when driving this vehicle.) For people with families, this car can act as its own WiFi hotspot, so the little ones can play with their tablets while the parents are driving. My only complaint with the car is how the cruise control feels - The button placement for that feels clunky. But that's it. Perhaps this isn't the best vehicle for an army of guys who are big and tall, but I have no complaints and am always comfortable when getting around. My only regret is not getting into one of these sooner, but I'm glad I finally have the car that I was meant to drive. I recommend the hatchback version to everyone.

Love the Fun colors and remote start

by Julie7 from Stillwater, MN | December 14, 2019

I don't have a garage so remote start and heated seats were at the top of my list. I drove a few cars and I fell in love with the fun colors this one offered. I don't love the interior seat fabric and it's not as fast as my VW was, but for the size of the engine it works.
