2012 Chevrolet Sonic LTZ: Small Thrills
September 14, 2012
I enjoy using the air-conditioning controls in our long-term 2012 Chevrolet Sonic LTZ Turbo. For one thing, the dials feel very solid and turn fluidly -- they feel higher-quality than the dials in some more expensive General Motors products.
Secondly, I like how the interior panels line up so nicely around the A/C controls. They're straight and the gaps are even -- again not something I see (to this day) in every GM vehicle.
And that gets to the heart of the Sonic's appeal for me. I never have to make excuses for it when discussing it with friends who ordinarily wouldn't buy American-brand cars (and who aren't inclined to give our red hatch the time of day). It's just a good car, period.
