Least Reliable car I've ever owned

Lots of problems. Constant leaking valves, turbo failed at 120K miles and ruined the catalytic converter. $3K estimated repair bill on a car that is only worth $2K at just 120K mostly highway miles. I'm the only owner and take meticulous care of my cars. Unfortunately, the interior and exterior look amazing still - the engine is the lemon on this car.


Hate this piece of xxxx

It's literally in the shop every month I feel like. In actually getting it looked at again on Monday cause the check engine light is on and there's a clicking noise after I turn off my car. Smh I can't wait to never own a Chevy again


i like the car but ive had a lot of issues with it

this car has 4 recalls which i cannot feel safe driving it .all the time ive had it in the chev grarge quite a lot but not much done cause they say there not any recal


Best car I have owned. No problems. Good on gas

Up to 38 on highway. Never had issue with this car. Tires a year old. Very clean inside. Sunroof drives smooth. Turbo leather seats. Heated in front


What a beautiful car, perfect first car for a kid.

Everything about it is fantastic, it handles beautifully and looks really nice. Great on gas, great pickup and most of all my daughter loves it.


A fun and inexpensive car to own.

The car is small but sporty and fun to drive. It handles well, is responsive and is inexpensive to operate. Gas mileage is excellent (31+ combined city/highway, mostly city) which was a major reason for purchasing it. It seats four comfortably enough but since our family now only consists of the two of us, it more that meets our needs. We have taken the car on trips and it was more than big enough for two and luggage.


Bought in 2019. Several engine coolant leaks .

Had to replace 2 coolant lines, a water pump, and thermostat assembly. Vehicle has a comfortable ride and adequate power. City gas mileage not what advertised (2 mpg. less).


Fast, comfortable, very responsive.

Great starter car. I've owned it for 5 years and never had any problems. It's cute, comfortable, easy to drive and park anywhere. Very light and responsive. Spacious trunk.


Turbo and Gas Mileage Excellent!

My car is a 6-speed manual, turbo. Fully Loaded. I like the My Link connection and sound. However, the hatchback has small cargo space, and the seat belt fasteners are hard to find, jammed in between the seat and center console. I wish it had a center console that opens and holds change (money.). No sunglass holder , and usb plugin is in upper glove box. I love the extra glove box! Overall, great car for the price! Gas mileage is 35 MPG! Dependable.


Very reliable. Easy to drive. Comfortable.

Car is easy to drive. Air conditioning not cold enough tire light malfunction. Remains on even when tires are full. Gas mileage not great in city. Inspite of little quirks very reliable. Not overburdened with electronics
