Default Used Sonic

Looking to purchase a used Sonic sedan 2012-2017 and was wondering what issues should I look for in this particular model. Any model years I should avoid?

Am in Northern VA/DC metro area, if that helps.

To be honest - am in the market for a sub-compact and was looking at Yaris/Fit and then moved to Accent. However, was looking at some reviews and was surprised to find Chevy Sonic having such good reviews.

What is the opinion of actual car users? Is the car really as good as the reviews?

Consumer Reports suggests getting LT with Turbo but of course in used cars it becomes difficult to get all desired options.

Thanks for your assistance.

I would be looking for a 2014 Sonic coming off a lease from a Chevy dealer. The car will have depreciated enough to make it much cheaper than a 2017 and you may find a very low mileage car and can ask for the repair history during it's warranty period. You will pay somewhat more but the dealer will give you some sort of warrantly with the purchase.

Thanks for your response.

I'd also like to know if people think that Sonic really deserves the high ratings that it has or are there issues that plague this model or model years.
