2017 Chevrolet Cruze Hatchback LT 4dr Hatchback (1.4L 4cyl Turbo 6M)


Review

The last time I owned a Chevy was 20 years ago. That was when I bought a Subaru, which lasted the 20 years, with few complaints. The only reason I did not buy another one is they moved out of my budget. The last Chevy I owned, I had to work on it every weekend so I could drive it during the week. Chevy's quality has improved dramatically, except there is still driver window air noise, and the paint is still suspect, scratches too easily and with 6 stone chips in the hood already ( 13 months), and no I don't follow gravel trucks. The trunk space is lacking, can't fit golf clubs without the back seats down. The good? The mileage is phenomenal, 41 mpg+ on the highway, 33 mpg combined. I got the Bose sound system, and it of course provides great sound. It is quite comfortable, and drove several hours on a road trip with no seat fatigue. They could put a 3 sec. delay in the Auto-Stop feature, for when a stop is only temporary, but you can crawl through a stop sign or kick it in neutral if you want to by pass it. I think this would be a better car for a young person, as it has all the communications you could ask for, I think. It has good acceleration, handles well except in deep snow, and is fun to drive.

2017 Chevrolet Cruze Hatchback Premier 4dr Hatchback (1.4L 4cyl Turbo 6A)


Review

don't do it! everything goes wrong on this car but let's focus on the daily struggle you're about to endure. The car doesn't accelerate properly and they say 1 or 2 things A. the car has a gas saving blah blah that's just the way it is but go down the street and they say you need a new transmission. Look all over the internet this is a common issue. The car is so uncomfortable to drive because of the seats and you have to manually do it it's not electronic and in 2018 it really sucks. Not to mention there's recalls on it but dealerships won't fix them at no cost unless you got it from a specific dealership and do all this paperwork. Spare yourself the trouble I still owe on it or it would be gone. At this point i'd rather trade it in and get a 500$ piece of crap that would drive better.

2017 Chevrolet Cruze Hatchback LT 4dr Hatchback (1.4L 4cyl Turbo 6A)


Review

I've had my 2017 Cruze for just a little over 18 months and now have 27800 miles. Took it on a 25 state road trip after driving it for the first 10 months. I love the agility but I'm disappointed with the auto stop feature, it's a little dangerous if you forget it's there when in a right on red situation. That two second delay catches you off guard and could get you in trouble when timing the approach of other traffic. This feature can lead to a semi-T-Boned accident if you are not careful (so far so good). I think it needs to be removed. It's not saving enough gasoline to risk having an accident and losing your life I always think in terms of harm virus benefit, and if you can't afford to waste two teaspoons of gasoline while waiting at a light or stop sign, you probably can't afford a car in the first place. Anyway, although it's not a rocket out of the gate, I love the mixture of spunk and agility once you're underway. It handled very in the Rocky's , made the twisty turny's fun to play in. Averaged 33 MPG at greater than speed (XXX MPH) and even on terrain. During my road trip I hit all four seasons, from snow in the Rocky's, to heavy rain and cross winds as I navigated the Great Plains. Road Trips allow you to really test drive the car, and it met all of my expectations. BTW, it handled very well at maximum speed 121 MPH ( on flat land and of course you have to be out there by yourself to travel at that speed). If you travel at that speed, look out for those sneaky dips in the road, they come up much faster then you realize or expect. Bottom line, aside from the auto stop feature, I love this car, it really rocks in looks, utility and function, the old fashion wipers are cool too. The way I grade a car is to ask myself, would I buy another one like this. The answer is hell yes.

Review

The last year was a bit of a roller-coaster in our lives, and involved selling a bunch of stuff and relocating. Kept one vehicle, sold another (a Porsche Boxster) and I leased a Chevy Cruze Premier hatchback for myself to use daily. Moved to a colder climate and didn't want/need a convertible anymore, and our fully loaded car is SO much nicer than Chevrolets of the past and is amazingly comfortable. Honestly, it's easily as nice as our 2007 BMW 3-series was inside, and handles almost as well, incredibly. The car has been flawless so far, and feels incredibly solid and quiet, especially considering my expectations. Winter driving has also been beyond expectations, even though it's just a front-drive car with all-season tires. Our mileage approaches 40mpg on the highway, although for city driving in cold weather it's been in the low 20s. We test-drove a Cadillac ATS at the dealer with the 2.0L turbo engine, and this car could compete with a VW GTI if that engine were an option (I've had one of those, as well)
