No temperature gauge not even in the menu on the tachtometer.

No Satellite Radio or Cd Player

This review is for the 2013 model which I just bought. I love mine. It has a smooth ride,gets great gas mileage,has 3 cup holders and an arm rest and plenty of trunk space. This car also comes with ac,heat etc. I like the small size of my sonic. It can get in the tightest places.

I am however disappointed there is no temperature gauge. I don't like not knowing how hot the coolent engine is running. I generally like to keep an eye on the coolent temperature.

Another disappointment is no satellite radio however the people I bought the car from are adding one to my car. I just have to wait for them to get it ordered.

Overall I would recommend this car. The one I have is the cheaper version. The more expensive one comes with power windows and a turbo engine. Mine doesn't have the turbo.
