    LT with RS package is great. It's fun to drive, has good acceleration, handles well - very responsive. It's surprisingly quiet and comfortable, even on bumpy roads. Fuel economy is not great - 17mpg around town, 24mpg on non highway trips, 32mgp on highway trips averaging about 70mph. After 2 years with this car, I would suggest the sedan over the hatchback. The hatchback is just too small and it has a very small gas tank.

    After owning a 2018 chevy sonic hatchback, I don't know where to start actually! Besides the low interior and exterior quality, you'll be stunned several times for electric system going haywire. 1. Cooling system failure/weakness. 2. Repeated engine overheating due to radiator fan failure. 3. Thermostat housing melt. 4. Coolant leaking. 5. Seat heating failure. 6. Repeated theft mode activation causing the car to not start without a clear cause! 7. Sudden battery failure. 8. Car not detecting the remote key without a known reason! And only God knows what's coming..

    I own a 2018 sonic hatch since 2019 and it has taken me to the industrial area several times and I've become a good customer to wiremen, body and paint specialists! Only first year went well then electrical faults cascaded. This car has good economy and power but lacks interior and exterior quality so much. Paint starts chipping and deteriorating, bumpers and skirts start to fall off the body bcuz of weak clips, mud covers (over the tires) start to fall off, wipers break easily and almost fly off at 170 kmh. Then seat shuts, anti theft mode faulty activation for several times engine, remote not detected causing alarm to start asa you open the door, car cant recognize keyless remote, car's alarm start when you unlock the car using the key provided by the company! overheating causing a/c to go off and/or stop, coolant leaking, thermostat housing melting... Ugh
