Been tired of driving around an aging wagon that gets **** for gas mileage...so decided to pick up a car...
Ended up somehow with a brand new 2012 Chevy Sonic LTZ Hatchback. 8 miles on the clock.
It's a 1.4L Turbocharged Ecotec, with a 6 speed. Makes 138 HP and 148 Torques (Yay Top Gear rubbing off on me)
It's slow as stink. 0-60 is 8.4seconds....But it's the most fun car I've ever driven, and I can't explain why.
Came fully loaded with the titanium package, only thing missing were the factory mudflaps.
Car gets amazing gas mileage. My usual drives into town, or over to my family's house, I get between 48-52mpg, depending on traffic. Hell, running on the interstate from NC (where I bought the car) to FL, I averaged 41mpg.
On to the pictures, cause you all don't know how to read and like shiny stuff.
The day I bought the car. Mind my sister's little ****ty ford.
First time getting a bath.
After playing around with her for a few miles. BTW, I love the motorcycle inspired cluster
Then I tossed about 1400 miles on it in 4 days. Drove it back to FL, then went to Pensacola (450miles from my house) to move my fiancée into her dorm room at UWF. Then came back home.
Decided that Bio didn't hate the car enough, so I plasti-dipped the rims black.
I picked up an Inferno orange spoiler and mirror caps for $50 all together. They looked alright, but just didn't look as good as I thought they would. So they're being sold off.
Went with orange decals because I was told they were a very close match to the inferno orange...well they weren't...oh well. I like how it looks, but I think I'm going to switch to either yellow, or flat black.
That, and I need to get something for the side to break up the huge amount of door panel.
And the most accurate description of the car.
Seibon front lip...cause god damn it's sexy.
OEM style side skirt
Seibon rear diffuser
Possibly a different spoiler.
Muffler delete...cause the factory muffler on the turbo cars doesn't do much to muffle the noise, since the turbo breaks up quite a bit of it. Plus its ****ing huge, and weighs a bunch.
At some point I'll swap in an LS9 and make it run faster than in the 14s.
