Served its purpose. Sonic 2014 LT 1.8
This car served its purpose for basic daily routines. Drive to and from work, and grocery and shopping. Realiability??? Cannot guarantee. Purchase in 2020 with 71,000 mileage. May 2021 mileage was 77,000 engine light on. OBDII showed error codes. Changed thermostat $375.00. Engine light still on. Temperature while on part without AC on was 230. Changed throttle and radiator fan. Spent $950 for parts only. Engine light still on. In shop now. Changed intake manifold. Spent $950 labor & parts. Engine Light was gone but engine temperature is still 230. We paid $7500.00 for this car. Can someone tell me what is wrong with this car? Can't afford to purchase another car for now with only one person working in our household.
Worst car I’ve owned
Absolutely hate it. I bought it used, but I have had so many issues with it since. Transmission hoses busted, obviously you can’t check transmission fluid in a closed system, so my transmission went out. I was on the interstate in freezing temperatures with my toddler an hour from home when it happened. I’m unsure if it’s because of that or the fact that my traction control stays on. Since we replaced the transmission, the same xxxx thing is happening and it just throws the code for TCM, which was ALSO replaced. Also had to replace the ball joints. Now the engine light, traction control light, and tire pressure lights are all on. The gas gauge and odometer aren’t working and no one has a single idea as to why. Worst car I’ve EVER owned.
EXACTLY THE TYPE OF CAR I WAS LOOKING FOR
This car was everything I wanted and needed. Its compact and comfortable to drive. I'm glad I got the car and I plan to take a lot of relaxing drives.
