2012 Chevrolet Sonic LT 4dr Sedan (1.8L 4cyl 6A)


Bought this car new. Stock tires are useless in MI winters, so 4 snows are used in winter. Still gets 30+ mpg with snows!

Good equipment package on LT models.

We just got back from a trip to the UP of Michigan. Got 38.5 mpg overall and its rated at 35 hwy.

I'm picky about my cars and this one has had minor damage and repairs (others fault) twice. Drives very well at highway speeds and has usable seating for four. Holds a good amount of cargo with rear seats folded down, even in the sedan.

No mechanical problems or issues to date.

My only complaint is that it is not very forgiving on rough roads and we have a lot of those around here.

Best Features

Remote start in Winter. AC in summer.

Worst Features

1.3 turbo diesel option like overseas... Easily would get 50+ mpg.
