2012 Chevrolet Sonic LTZ: Dog Report

June 25, 2012

Word of warning: This is what happens when you get too close to my dog Mya. Face full of tongue. As happy as she was to get buckled in the 2012 Chevrolet Sonic LTZ long-termer, we didn't take her on a long road trip this weekend but rather just across town to a friend's house for a barbecue party.

Still, there was enough material from the excursion to warrant a dog report.

After doing this in numerous cars, I've learned to really appreciate when the seatbelt fasteners protrude from the seat and when her doggy mat can easily be tucked into the seat. Not to say those are deal breakers if those are missing from a car, it's just nice when they are present.

The Sonic doesn't have any storage (no in-door cubbies or cupholders) in the backseat but since this wasn't a long trip it wasn't a big deal. Just threw her leash in the footwell.

There was the issue of the absence of rear vents to cool down the cutest backseat occupant ever but we just aimed the vents on the dash in her direction and she seemed fine with that (no heavy panting).
