About Chevrolet Sonic

As General Motors' first attempt to the subcompact segment, Chevrolet Sonic has been produced by an American multinational corporation General Motors Company's automobile Chevrolet Division since 2011 as a subcompact car. Originally introduced as the second-generation Chevrolet Aveo, Sonic is a renamed version of Aveo in the North American, South African and ASEAN markets. Slotting between the Chevrolet Spark hatchback city car and the compact Chevrolet Cruze hatchback and sedan, Sonic is now in its first generation.
Chevrolet Sonic made its debut at the 2010 Paris Motor Show and was built based on the Gamma II global subcompact platform. Available as the 5-door hatchback and 4-door sedan, Sonic comes in four trim levels: base LS/1LS, LT/1LT, LTZ/1LZ and sporty RS. At the 2016 New York International Auto Show, a facelifted version Sonic was unveiled, it got new LED taillights, a restyled front fascia and refreshed equipment. Now, Sonic is powered by a 1.8 L inline 4-cylinder engine rated at 138 horsepower and 125 pound-feet of torque and a 1.4 L turbocharged inline 4-cylinder making 138 hp and 148 lb-ft of torque. And both engines send power through 5-speed, 6-speed manual and 6-speed automatic transmissions to the front wheels.

Chevrolet Sonic Common Problems & Maintenance Tips

Boasting sharp styling, nimble handling, a composed ride, generous interior space, ample features and quick acceleration, Chevrolet Sonic is a wise choice for buyers. But a wise owner will also pay more attention to these common problems on the Sonic:
First, engine and cooling system failures are what Chevrolet Sonic drivers complained most during driving. And in general, these two issues happen together, cooling failure often deteriorates the engine failure, which may also be the reason for the cooling system failure. Therefore, you had better solve this before worse situation appears. Some experienced Sonic drivers said the engine failure often has symptoms such as unusual noises such as rattling or squealing from the engine, roughly running engine, hesitating to accelerate or stumbling during acceleration, backfiring, hard starting or inability to start and vehicle stalling. And if the coolant keeps leaking and the engine stays overheating, then its performance will decrease dramatically. Once the engine loses power while accelerating and activate both the Check Engine Light and Low Coolant Light, Sonic throttle body, coolant reservoir, cooling hose, pinion bearing, oil filter, ignition coil, throttle body gasket, body control module, thermostat, crankshaft gear, drive belt, and head gasket need a thorough inspection.
Second, electrical issues on Chevrolet Sonic are also very tricky to handle with. On one hand, there are many electrical parts of the vehicle; on the other hand, electrical parts are important for convenience and high efficiency. But according to some Sonic drivers, many electrical parts of the vehicle are succumbed to wear and tear easily, possibly due to a high frequency of usages. Generally speaking, Sonic power window switch, seat motor, window motor, instrument cluster, speedometer, mass air flow sensor, steering angle sensor, window regulator, headlight switch, MAP sensor, and cruise control switch are electrical parts that need your more attention.
However, it is not that easy to keep your Chevrolet Sonic at the prime condition since apart from above mentioned common problems on the vehicle, unexpected issues will also arise. In order to decrease the possibility of unexpected accidents, you need to perform routine maintenance on some vulnerable auto parts. For example, wiper blade and windshield wiper are often made of soft rubber but they always work under adverse weather conditions to provide excellent visibility to drivers. Maintaining them regularly is an essential. Other parts including wiper arm, seat belt, wheel bearing, fan blade, radiator fan, exhaust piper, control arm, hood latch, shock and strut mount, wheel cover, door handle and horn should be on your routine maintenance list as well.
