Very Uncomfortable Seats - Hard Ride - Lots Road Noise
By gemigniani1 on


2013 Chevrolet Cruze LS 4dr Sedan (1.8L 4cyl 6A)


Seat bottoms have very skimpy padding so I cannot use the car for long drives.

Suspension is too firm so bumps are not absorbed.
Lots of road noise on coarse surfaces.
Overall it's a primitive driving experience.
Corollas and Elantras I have rented were far more refined and comfortable.

Also, dash controls are difficult to see (tiny icons) and figure out how they work.
Corolla dash controls are straighforward.

Thick door pillars create blind spots

Not sure why you would purchase the car then... if the ride it too stiff and the engine noise bothers you? I love the tight steering suspension in my Cruise and the engine noise when accelerating is very pleasing to me (but I am an automotive enthusiast). What you call a refined ride, I call squishy and old feeling. As for the A-Pillars (not door pillars) they contain air bags and have become thick in all cars. I noticed that for all makes and models that have newer airbag systems. To each their own, but I can not believe you would purchase a vehicle that you did not like. I love my Cruise and have much happier then I was with my Honda Accord.

I love my cruze also rides great soft no noise. I'm with midnight. If u did buy it u must have test drove it. And if the vehi has miles on it now check tires. Maybe it's time to replace them that will cause road noise. Or maybe drive with the windows up loll. My cruze is very pleasant to drive great car
