Piece of xxxx buy forgein
This car is a lemon. Everything on this car has had to be replaced before 100,000 miles. I have replaced, fuel harness, fuel tank, fuel injectors cleaned, water pump, timing belt, radiator, coolant reservoir, my transmission went out while driving in a busy intersection no Warning. Air bags have been repaired and replaced and still having problems. Electrical problems since purchasing. This car was very poorly made. I have put more money into the car then it’s worth. Chevy doesn’t stand by it and won’t admit to the cars poor design and Takati won’t take responsibility for the airbags not deploying either. Worst part I live in illinois where our lemon laws only allow 30 days from purchase to file for lemon law. I’m stuck with an undriveable car for 6 years. Pieces of xxxx. Chevy should have taken them all back and given out a better car to all these ppl that got dooped. I will NEVER buy another Chevy again.
Worst car! I bought my sonic brand new. At first it was simple things going wrong...alternator/battery/headlights every few months. I've always been on time with servicing my car. As soon as I hit 100k the car took a total crap. Car started throwing multiple codes went into fail safe mode rendering me stranded. I've had to replace multiple sensors/coil pack/ECM. That was last year. Car hit 115k check engine light came on once again and started throwing multiple codes... P0131 and P0171 so I replaced the sensor but as soon as I did that the engine light started blinking and running horrible throwing a multitude of codes. Upon inspection noticed PCV valve was creating a vacuum. Recall on this but only for the 1.4L mine isn't covered because it's a 1.8L... Crock if you ask me. Luckily I've gotten off cheaper than others due to friends that are mechanics or doing the work myself but honestly I am getting seriously tired of throwing money at this car and being stranded without a vehicle. I don't have other transportation so I'm hoping that by replacing the valve cover it'll run long enough to trade in on something more reliable. If you are considering buying a Sonic... Think twice these are a money pit, you might buy it new for cheap but you'll be upside down b4 you leave the lot and will eventually wind up spending money on repairs that you could have spent purchasing a more reliable vehicle to start with.
