Best value of any car. Best small hatchback
November 27, 2018
I bought this car last year from the original, single owner of the car. It is an LTZ hatchback with leather and heated seats, the 1.4l turbo, and a 6-speed manual. The first owner had not a single issue with the car. I have upgraded the intake manifold for preventative maintenance. Other than that, I have done absolutely nothing to the car other than oil changes, filters, tires, and brakes.I have yet to Average under 40 mpg Combined on a tank of fuel. I get above 450 miles to a tank and if 100% highway driving on a road trip, I get 500 miles+ to an 11 gallon tank. The transmission is great. The car is quick, fun, and drives very nicely. Car includes a hill holder function in the 6-speeds, which keeps your position on an incline when putting the car in gear- very useful. Also, comes with traction control that can be turned on or off.
No Sonic comes with a coolant temp. gauge which I do not like, but it does have a light that comes on if the engine gets hot, which is sufficient. The rest of the gauge cluster is great- simple and cool looking. The audio and tech in the car is great for a 2012. I would recommend this car to anyone and have a hard time believing that a Honda Fit is a better car like most reviews would state. It also looks much better than the Fit and Hyundai Accent and etc. These cars used are less expensive than most other used subcompacts. The cost of ownership of this car is nearly impossible to beat. Saved a lot of money with this vehicle. I also tow a motorcycle with this car with no issues. Best car I've owned without a question.
