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


I bought my sonic as a cheap commuter car. I got a pretty good deal on it. I have 800 miles on it as of this post, 90% of which is highway miles. The car is getting about 41 miles to the gallon on the hwy and about 38 in the city. I am truly impressed with the mileage. I really didn't need the car to look good as I just wanted a reliable commuter, but it looks nice as well. The ride is very good for the class of car. I own a BMW, and it's not in that class, but holds its own in the lightweight class. The inside of it sucks compared to my BMW, but it works for what I need it for.
It has Bluetooth and that's all I need. The other features such as Sirius radio and iPod controls are a plus.

Best Features

Onstar iPod controls Mileage!

Worst Features

The center console I horrible. They need to actually put something there that you can lean on. The arm rest is the biggest piece of crap I've ever seen. There is no arm rest for the passenger. The phone controls are prehistoric. Really bad design there. That's a freaking lawsuit waiting to happen.
