I have the LT model and the remote start was a big factor in my decision. One of the few cars at this price point that offers it. The stereo is really good as well. It rides very smooth with very little road noise (at least compared to my '04 Jeep Liberty). The tires aren't great, though I am not sure if they were stock or if they were previously replaced. That is next on my list of upgrades. I have had the car for less than 6 months, but am in love with it. Obviously, I can't speak to the longevity of it just yet.
I absolutely love this car. It was a HUGE upgrade from my last car (which was a 96'). It is amazinggggg on gas mileage. I can get about 450 miles to a tank; so that's about 35 city and 47-50 highway. There are lots of cup holders and plenty of places to charge stuff. It also has a huge trunk. The few things I don't like about the car could go either way. I kinda wish I had more backseat space for passengers; but since I travel alone and I'm always on the go, having the large trunk makes up for it. The high beams on this car are not as bright as my car from 1996----which is a little shocking. Lastly, I wish the CD player could hold more than one disc. All in all, definitely one of the largest purchases I've ever made, but worth it!
This Chevy Sonic is hands down, the Most fun little car I have ever owned. It always wants to go without skipping a beat! It is a zippy and very fun vehicle, which surprised us! I was skeptical of the 1.4 L , but that Turbo makes it Go! Fully loaded with 4 people, and its Still Zippy! The interior and features are very nice! Leather, touch screen stereo with rear facing camera. Not to mention it costs me less than $15 to fill it up and drives all week at 40 mph on average! We couldn't be more impressed.
