The 2017 Chevy Trax, for me, is like the SUV version of a Chevy Cavalier.

26 Jun

Only downside I see so far is the different headlight covers from the LT and Premier.

6 Jul

but sheesh) the dome light went out in about that same 7000 miles as well the rear passenger door handle on the outside occasionally doesn’t work.

Then the temperature dips below 20 degrees, this car has trouble shifting and the turbo quits working and the check engine light comes on and the engine looses power.

23 Aug

AC on all Chevy models (even 2015 Trax) is very weak and poor - dealership says temperature is ""within acceptable parameters"" and thus won't fix,

26 Dec

Because of hood design, wipers cannot be place in the up position.

24 Aug

Aerodynamics seems to direct/push pebbles/stone into the windshield.

26 May

The windshield wipers that came with the Trax were horrible so I have to change those out right away.

Read the blogs, the automatic transmissions fails after 100,000 miles and there is NO rebuilding it.

31 Jul

Already needs its 3rd transmission at only 115k miles.

10 Jan

The CVT transmission broke and costs 4000 to fix.

5 Apr

Only because it has a turbo and another gear in the trans.

12 Feb

but it is VERY odd if youve never driven a CVT vehicle because they dont shift like a normal transmission does.

10 Nov

1.2 liter engine with CVT Transmission can't get out of it own way .

21 Oct

the chevy spark was bought to replace a smart twofor that the transmission was going out in,,, needed something cheap to drive back and forth to work.

5 Nov

Shifting sucks when taking off from a stop.

The 2015 Spark LT with automatic transmission really answered all the concerns that were raised with previous Spark models: better acceleration (still a tad anemic,

10 Oct

Here's the rub: acceleration was always finicky, even after the well-communicated recall work on the CVT belt tensioner was completed.

12 Feb

The engine is a small, 84HP engine without the assistance of a turbocharger or a supercharger which makes acceleration slow.

4 Jun

And only one time did it go out on me while approx 150 miles away, and I had to be towed back to the dealership--the plastic container that holds the engine fluid cracked and the fluid came out .

The low power output on the engine also extends into the vehicles electrical capabilities.

23 Apr

Road noise is awful and hat to shout at each other just to have a conversation.

Aside from these big complaints, this car is VERY noisy.

When slowing down, it acts like a stick shift with a bad driver (someone who is not able to use a clutch smoothly)!!

20 Jun

But, it seems the transmission has some issues and the dealer says that the way it shifts.

2 Jun

Transmission is the biggest issue.

30 Aug

Door latch bolts that have failed within 1st year of owning the car that caused the door to be unable to open.

12 Mar

There is no reason this car should have failed.

20 Oct

This can't be good for carbon buildup in the engine and am expecting the engine to fail before long.

18 Apr

Spark got repoed after tranny failed and we quit making payments.

31 Jan

That car should of been recalled & forgotten about.

9 Dec

Poor rear suspension didnt bother me.

5 Dec

Most of those miles are on a major state highway, and the Spark is not at all uncomfortable, rough or overly bouncy.

15 Nov

Second, my spark had a weird issue where it appeared to be idling rough, dealership refused to investigate or even schedule an appointment with me.

28 Jul

I began to noticed the inconvenience of having a small vehicle when every bump and pot hole felt harsh and loud.

5 Oct

If I hit a speed bump it feels like to me that the front end tires start to shake and the car seems to try to recover..I have the Techno Pink.

3 Oct

Car alarm randomly going off, car not wanting to start, lights flashing, anything wrong with a car, it had.

30 Aug

There have been issues with all the lights flicker on and off, including the windshield wipers, and it not starting randomly.

12 Feb

Raising/lowering the windows causes the headlights to dim.

12 Apr

The tire pressure light has been on at least twice a month since I've had it, and nobody can fix the issue.

21 Mar

I bought the car and after just 3 1/2 weeks, the "Check Engine" light came on in my new Spark while on my way home from work white smoke poured out from under the bottom of the car.

My mechanic stated that it'd be EASY to fix any engine problem as it's laid out well, and the parts won't be expensive to replace should I have need to.

24 Aug

On the acceleration issue, there is a recall that just came out where they clean the throttle body and replace the PCV valve.

12 Jul

It only has about a 7 gallon tank so fill- ups are very cheap.

9 May

The only problem I've had was the nipple on the surge tank for the radiator cracked, as we live on a private dirt road due to vibration.

22 Mar

but then got a 2014 spark on both I had to replace the “coolant tank resivour.” Make sure you get oil changes regularly and some fuel injector cleaner.

18 Oct

Also, the price to fill up the gas tank is so cheap.

7 Nov

very small gas tank, not a lot of room behind a tall driver, hard to drive when windy out, poor acceleration

16 Oct

I would rather fill a gas tank up every 2 to 3 days and be in a reliable vehicle than only fill up once a week and he broken down.

14 Jan

It easily beats the mpg estimate of 32/38, I'm getting 40 mpg per tank without really trying!

10 Mar

Steering column, clunking noises, transmission, back bumper popping out, side panel popping out, squeaky brakes, etc!

14 Mar

Easy to drive--steering and brakes aren't too hard or too soft.

14 Aug

Steering issues that were barely resolved (still moody) Now, transmission issues making highway driving just painfully difficult.

12 Feb

Now the power steering is going out and my mechanic points out a Technical Service Bulletin about Special Coverage (GM TSB 15356 - LOSS OF POWER STEERING) that outlines EXACTLY what the car is doing and that GM is willing to pay for the repair.

7 Aug

Catholic converter gone shocks gone brakes gone sensors gone steering horrible and so on the list goes and I have emailed and called gm after I tlod them I had to pay $1500 for my exhaust system and they don't even care and it was at there dealership .

Now remove entire front clip to change bulb (and you Must Use Gloves/Cloth as you may cause bulb to burst if you touch it with bare hands/fingers.

6 Dec

Chevy design on the change of front end light is horrible.

4 Mar

They found multiple more codes from the check engine light, a leaking exhaust, and a huge computer mess causing some of these problems.

1 Dec

but a little know how and YouTube it took less then an hour but still a little ridiculous just remember to change both bulbs at once and you wont be doing it again for a long time.

Wish things like the Evap, Airbag error light, & recurring door lock issues were covered by recalls--even working a little overtime, I only earn 37k a year for the state of Oregon.

The only cons I can really give it is that it's not an SS version, which is a massive step up, And that it's pretty feature light, even for it's time.

30 Jan

I've had this car for almost 6 months now and not a month has gone by without my check engine light coming on.

12 Jun

I must say, This car is Reliable, Dependable,Great sound system, the seats are kinda Awful,we bought it from my friend who does the Auction,He picked out the Perfect match for us.

9 May

The road and wind noise is deafening, the seats are uncomfortable, and it has poor high speed stability and braking.

26 Mar

I keep putting pieces back in place when they fall off: cubby lid between the front seats, blinker switch cover, parking break

11 Oct

So it's not recommended if u have smaller kids in car seats, or larger ones with long legs, like mine.

2 Aug

It was uncomfortable for me as a man driving it ad I would always switch positions trying to find comfort in the drivers seat.

8 Jun

other than the fact that on long car rides your back will start to hurt while driving or back seat passengers will feel cramped if the front two seats are pushed back for larger people.

1 Sep

I dig the bright electronic gage and the center console <3 I only wish there was a little more room in the back seat.

30 Jan

The car isn't very comfortable, especially the lack of leg room in the back seat.

23 Dec

The rear seat isn't bad for two (except headroom for those over 6ft) for a compact

28 Nov

but the seats start getting uncomfortable after about 2.5-3hrs of driving.

Other than a recall on the ignition switch which was repaired by Chevy, I have never had a problem with the car at all, only usual oil changes and brakes.

6 Jul

There is no center storage, just two cup holders that are limited in cup height by the emergency brake lever.

24 Feb

Oh yes, the brakes squeek and the dealer claims they couldn't duplicate the problem.

The suspension leaves a lot to be desired as ride control isn't very good and I can feel every bump in the road, and there are too few miles on it for the shocks to be worn out.

The body does rattle quite a bit due to the plastic that surrounds everything, and that can be obnoxious.

The engine was rebuilt as well as the transmission.

Mechanics say its a "shifting module in the transmission that needs to be replaced.

21 Jul

Only major problem I had with it was with the shift control solenoid in the transmission, most other problems were minor electrical issues.

It dies at random, the transmission is terrible, it dents SO easily and the AC/Heat AND the fans go out constantly, and those are expensive fixes.

30 Jun

The heating system also failed.

22 Mar

I had a to replace the converter, thermostat (5 times), had the entire system flushed over 50 times, and the blower motor resistor 2 times, not including the water pump, and O2 sensor.

14 Sep

Since than I have had to replace the water heater, radiator, cost of 1300.00.

13 Jul

GM has, for years, been having electrical issues, primarily with the instrumentation and blower controls.

1 Mar

Also the heater doesn't work half the time.

11 Oct

I have a gas smell that comes through the vents that I have to roll down all windows to breathe for the first 5-8 minutes after cranking which after a year has still not been fixed due to the mechanics being unable to pinpoint the source.

Huge lack of power, stopping on a slight incline on the road would cause me to roll backward when releasing the brake.

28 Feb

The only thing I have had to replace is rear brakes and the front rotors probably need replacing or at least to be turned down - minor for a vehicle approaching 100,000 miles.

Anyway, the dealership addressed some issue about the car that I was concerned about because of safety issues (bent tie rod, back brakes and tires were bad, and carfax report still not in my hands!).

28 Jun

I've had a few issues including turning the brake rotors and had the intermediate steering shaft replaced.

7 Aug

Great car, over 90,000 miles now, only problems are brakes (front)warp out, front spoiler drags from every driveway.

6 Jun

I got belted with a hard rain and no leaks and no brake fade.

7 Jan

Be cautious of transmission and stained carpet because blower fan box may have leaked in rain water.

4 Feb

Then i noticed puddles of water on the floor in the back seat dont have a clue where its coming from.

14 Oct

The only thing that I have noticed is that whenever I floor it, afterwords you can feel the transmission shifting whenever it changes gears, no idea what it is

Overall no problems yet and if it is like the Cavalier I owned prevously it should have a very good engine reliability and go to the Cavalier's 142K mileage.

9 Apr

My wife owns a 2004 chevy Cavalier with the same motor and while the cavalier is a good car it does have its squeaks and rattles

15 Oct

Compared to my last vehicle (1999 Chevy Cavalier) the performance, option's, and most of all style is much better.

17 Aug

The battery is nearly inaccessible without a very long, abnormal socket and the headlight requires it to be removed to change out a bulb.

28 May

Headlights are not the greatest.

Lastly this is the pne that really gets me upset, after paying almost $500 to replace those lines two day's later the anti theft light came on & now my car won't start!!

22 Mar

The only cons I can really give it is that it's not an SS version, which is a massive step up, And that it's pretty feature light, even for it's time.

5 Jan

Eventually it got even worse.. my engine light came on as well.

12 Feb

Small personal problem with the range of the headlights (low beams only)

12 Jun

I must say, This car is Reliable, Dependable,Great sound system, the seats are kinda Awful,we bought it from my friend who does the Auction,He picked out the Perfect match for us.

9 May

The road and wind noise is deafening, the seats are uncomfortable, and it has poor high speed stability and braking.

1 Sep

but is as clean as a new car, in fact it still seems like a new car ecsept for the radio buttons and a missing plastic cover on the back part of the child seat strap attachment.

20 Oct

My only two complaints would be seat comfort (easily fixed with some cheap seat covers) and that it loses quite a bit of speed while going up really steep hills.

21 May

Ultimately, I'd give the front seats five stars and the back seats 1 star (ignoring the key issue which happened after about four years of owning it), so we'll call it three stars.

9 Jan

seats are uncomfortable on long trek,

30 May

Is that it's slightly uncomfortable riding over about 1-2 hours, especially in the backseat.

21 Jul

The seats are very uncomfortable.

8 Jun

There is plenty of interior space, I have a 6'6" friend and he sat fine in the front seat (with it back all the way of course) the trunk is huge especially with the rear seats folded down.

The power steering, brakes, and transmission would all go out randomly and dealer could never find the exact problem to fix it.

23 Feb

I had to replace the brake pads and roaters at 18,000 miles.

The only complaint I have is that the brakes sometimes feel a little "mushy"

We had to have the steering column replaced (under warranty) and the mechanic explained that this was a common design flaw in the '04 Malibu and that we were just fortunate that we weren't doing anything dangerous when the power steering went out.

30 Jun

and since brakes are never under warranty, I shelled out $500.
