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


I bought a 2013 Sonic LS sedan in late Feb., 2013.
3,400 miles on it.

The steering feels loose, especially at highway speeds.
Wanders in the lane and you constantly have to correct.
Took it back to Chev. dealers 3 times and they said nothing was wrong.
I've owned/driven many small cars and never had this issue before.
The heater takes a long time to warm up.
No engine temperature gauge.
Poor visibility.
Rough ride.
Idles rough.
Must use synthetic oil (Dexos).
Transmission not smooth.
Very cheap, ugly upholstery.
MyLink sound system but no CD player.
Want to buy American?
This has a Hungarian engine, Korean tires, and Chinese spare tire.
Buy something else, not a Sonic.

Worst Features

Hey GM, my 2002 Cavalier was a better car than the Sonic! Since you can't seem to learn anything on your own in 11 years, buy a Civic or even a Fiesta and learn from that.
