Positive Owner Reviews

Yassiel J

Best overall for family and single parents.

I love the car it is totally pack it has everything you need I just wish it was bigger and that it was four wheel drive. Also I wish it had better rims. Other than that it is perfect I do not have any other complaints. I think it is a great choice for family.

Becky S

Sunroof and backup camera.

Always reliable. Have had no problems. Great gas mileage. Good small SUV. Very comfortable to drive and ride in. Special. Features like sunroof and Backup camera make it more fun. I have many other features that I love. When I decide to get a new vehicle I plan on purchasing another trax as the price and comfort can't be beat.

Kara G

Compact SUV with a lot of character.

The Chevrolet Trax has been a great vehicle for the last three years. Although it looks small from the outside, there is a lot of room on the inside. One of the problems I have had with the vehicle is when you put the back seats down, the seats up front have to be moved up quite a bit in order for the seats to lay flat. This causes a problem for people with longer legs as it causes driving to become quite uncomfortable. There have not been any mechanical issues with the vehicle as of yet.

Kate S

Well functioning vehicle.

I have owned this vehicle for a year and have no problems with it. The performance has been good, but I have not yet driven it in snow as we did not get much in our area last winter. The seats are very comfortable and the radio works well. I do wish there was a CD player also in the vehicle and not just an USB plug.

Megan S

Chevrolet small SUV opinion and features.

I love my car. Chevrolet to me has always been an awesome brand. I love the warranty they provide to you. The gas mileage for my Trax is great. The interior compliments the features of the car. My car being a small version of in SUV definitely has the perks as if it were a regular size. (car alarm, automatic windows, touch screen radio, OnStar assistance, seats can be folded to make more room) also, when I first purchased I received satellite radio. Overall, I feel that Chevrolet is a brand you can trust.

Melissa C

Great vehicle if you do not have kids.

Great fuel. Mileage, overall a great vehicle. A little small. If you have kids. Would like more space between the back and front seats and a little more trunk storage. Drives very nicely. I have not had any problems with this vehicle since we bought it new on 2015.

Jessica W

Red Chevy trax that's good in the snow

It's wonderful for the snow! It also has Bluetooth and onstar. It's a wonderful suv crossover that's affordable

Minerva T

It's good on gas and easy to maneuver.

It is small compact car, very easy to maneuver and good on gas most importantly. Although it is a small car it is roomy inside.

Negative Owner Reviews

Not very great at being an SUV.

It is supposed to be an SUV but it is very cramped. I can barely fit 2 car seats in the back seat or a stroller in the trunk. It has a very slow acceleration that makes me nervous when pulling out into busy roads. Overall it is about as useful as a small car but worse on gas.

Frank Ramirez

Once it hit 70,000 miles

Bought it in 2017, was a 2016 model with only 28,000 miles. Drove great the first couple of years but once it reached 70,000 it became a headache. The waterpump went out that cost me about $598. A few weeks after that it started to idle real bad, bad spark plugs and broken cover that cost me another $600. Took it for a routine oil change and mechanic found an oil leak, broken timing cover which would have cost me $1,000. At that point I said no thanks and got rid of it. Stay away from this car, it isn't built to last pass 65,000 miles. I kept up all the maintenance, never missed an oil change, but felt like it became a lemon.

Jane curt

Bad car

My trax has started givin me problems would not recomend

Carla Costa

SUV is spuddering when I give it the gas

I have less than 30,000 miles on my 2015 SLE Chevy trax!. It is starting to spit and spudder when I give it the gas. Was told I have a pin size hole in the exhaust system??? Five hundred dollars to get it fixed! For a pin hole! Anyone else having this problem? I need to travel to move and feel I can't trust the vehicle! I can't believe this vehicle doesn't even have 30,000 miles and I am already having to put hundreds of dollars into it!

Felicia J

2015 Chevy trax. Do not buy unless you are desperate.

Reliability is not what this car is about. I have had this car for 5 years and for 4 of them I have had issues. Turbo went out and was expensive to fix, the seats take dirt and stains and hang on to them. It did it is job for what I needed it for but it is about time to upgrade. But will not be going with Chevy again.

Frank G

We wanted to go a little smaller with the trax and we got to small as far as the interior goes

No CD player, when you fold down the rear seat no room to adjust the front seat, rear door sometimes difficult to open

Ken G

Gas mileage of the 2015 Chevrolet Trax is awesome.

I like how easy it is to parallel park. The vehicle gets great gas mileage. The only thing I don't like about it is that it is too light in the snow.

Pretty Disappointed

I bought my Trax 2015LTZ brand new with 40 miles on it. The air conditioning was a disappointment from the start and never really felt like it cooled off the car in the hot summer - we can get up to 110 here in midwest. The AC Compressor now needs replaced and is leaking fluid - that will cost $950.00. It is leaking oil like a sieve and cost me $230.00 I refuse to take it to the dealer for repairs anymore since it costs over $1000 just to get fluids changed and engine light that came on. I will definitely be buying a Ford the next time I buy an SUV compact.

Pros from Owners

Renae H.

It is small, but still has a lot of space inside - easy to park in tight spots, but has plenty of room for guests and/or groceries. The turn radius is amazing. It handles very well, even in snow. I always feel safe in it. The seats are comfortable as well as the height of the car.

Melanie J.

I like that the Track has 4 wheel drive. The Track also gets great gas mileage and compared to other vehicles of the same body, the Track is more affordable. The rear seats can also go down to make more room in the trunk.

Melissa C.

Gas mileage is great and the car operates nicely. I think this is a great car for a couple, who do not have children. I have not had any major issues with this vehicle in the four years I have owned it.

Sue K.

It is very easy to drive and park. I love the ability to lower the back seats to have enough space to haul items. It looks great driving down the road. The interior is rugged but looks very nice. It has OnStar available. It is a wonderful addition that allows me to contact an actual human for help. Including emergencies and turn by turn directions. This also includes an automatic contact EMTs if a car wreck happens and I am unable to contact them myself.

Olivia M.

The gas mileage is great for someone who commutes and/or is out and about running errands a lot. The breaks are a bit touchy, but I have grown to like that feature. I do wish there was more room in the back seat - especially when I have car seats in the back, it seems stuffy.

Samantha P.

My trax gets over 31 miles per gallon, which is one of my favorite things about it. It is small enough to park anywhere with ease, but had plenty of room inside. My fiance‚ is 6'4" And has no issues being cramped like he does in some other vehicles. It has remote start, which I can use through the Chevy MyLink app and warm my car up in the winter or cool it down in the summer before getting in. I am short, so I love that the driver's seat is adjustable enough so that I can get comfortable and see well. The rear view camera is also a nice feature. I like that my phone can sync up easily and I can use Bluetooth for calls, music, GPS, etc.

Edward D.

Gas mileage, turbo for power, and AWD for driving in the snow. Gas mileage is good for the city and country. I drove in the mountains of Colorado and had no issues with power. I drove in snow and had no problems as long as you watch your speed and good tires.

Cons from Owners

Renae H.

When merging onto the expressway, it sometimes takes a little bit to get up to speed and sometimes feels like the engine is working really hard. There's a very strong chemical smell if I ever have to stop suddenly.

Melanie J.

The engine on the Chevy Trax is somewhat compact so I can not check the transmission fluid. The dashboard shows very limited information, such as the temperature gauge. Because it is so compact, the back seats have very limited leg room.

Melissa C.

I have a five month old and it is difficult to fit the car seat into the back seat. When the car seat is in the back, the passenger seat in the vehicle must be pushed forward, which makes it hard for the passenger to ride in the vehicle.

Sue K.

The gasoline tank is rather small so I have to stop frequently to fill up. It has a rubber barrier under the front bumper. This is constantly getting pulled off the frame if I hit a dip. I have to watch it so closely so it does not fall off. The seat belts in the back seats are a little difficult to fasten.

Olivia M.

There is not an arm rest for the passenger, only for the driver. The radio screen is completely touch screen, so in the winter time with gloves or mittens on, it is a bit of an inconvenience. The back seat is not particularly spacious, especially if you have a kiddo with a car seat.

Samantha P.

If I had to choose one thing I do not love about my trax, it would have to be that the actual buttons on the radio and the touchscreen buttons for scanning through radio stations are not 100% accurate. But I almost never use them because I can do most of what I need from the steering wheel controls.

Edward D.

I would have to say take off of the vehicle is a little slow. But not a major problem. The vibration of the vehicle at higher speeds. Sounds like I had a flat or low tire pressure. The vehicle has some blind spots.

Is The 2015 Chevrolet Trax A Good Car?

Yes! I have never had any issues driving my car! My car is used, and it still runs after 3 years like it is new.

Taylor K.

Yes it is very good. Gets me where I have to go all the time. I recommend the trax its high rated.

Brian H.

Yes it is reliable. I have never had any issues. It is great in the snow. The screen and backup camera work well.

Kayla B.

I really enjoy my trax. I do not like the fact that no matter where I position my window or arm, cigarette ash go directly back on the back seat and floorboard.

Margaret M.

It’s perfect for what I need. I work in healthcare so I have AWD for the winter. There’s enough room in the backseat so that if my friends need a ride they are not squished. The back seats also lay... Read More

Julie H.

I think that it is a good vehicle for a beginner family or for someone who doesn't need all of the room of a normal sized SUV.

Rolando C.

It’s great on gas but I have had some issues with engine cooling. The tractor is also limited in space and has small cargo space.

Nicole P.

It's okay, but it has had some mechanical problems for being such a young car. It's zippy and easy to drive. I thought it would have slightly better gas miles.

Chad P.

How Reliable Is The 2015 Chevrolet Trax?

I would consider my car to be reliable! My car can drive through any type of inclement weather without issue!

Taylor K.

I have not found any problems in the Chevrolet trax I do not want to find any problems of any kind ever.

Brian H.

Yes it is reliable. It has only one issue. Which is that it has no cruise control with the ls version.

Kayla B.

The ash issue. I would also get a 6 cylinder the next one I get. There seems to be a little less get up and go than I had in my previous car.

Margaret M.

I have found the 2015 Chevy Trax very reliable. I have only done the normal maintenance so far.

Leo M.

It is very reliable. I have had no major problems with mine so far. The only thing that makes it sort of inconvenient is the shifting of gears when you accelerate from a complete stop. It takes awhile... Read More

Erin G.

The tractor has been reliable although I'm not sure if that’s because it’s a newer vehicle or the vehicle itself. So far aside from some overheating that was covered, I have had limited issues

Liz B.

For the most part it has been reliable. Except for the water pump problem I have had. The battery recently died and it was not that old.

Emily S.

Is The 2015 Chevrolet Trax A Good Value?

My car was used, so it wasn't as expensive as it would be new, (which I am assuming is like 20,000) but this car is definitely worth the price.

Taylor K.

I do not remember how much it cost. It is an excellent value for the money spent on it. I would not want another car.

Brian H.

My loan was for 18,000 but I had a down payment. It was a great value. The quality of the car was worth the price.

Kayla B.

My payment is around 350 a month and gas around 20 dollars a week. For my day to day driving it has been really good. I am not sure I would take it on a long trip.

Margaret M.

I bought my car new and I feel it was a great value. I have had it for almost 5 years and have had no problems.

Maggie R.

I am not sure how much a brand new Trax costs, but I got mine used for around 15,000 and I feel that for not having the best credit that is ok.

Alyssa L.

My car cost way more than it should have. I purchased this product it’s first year of production and the cost has come down quite a bit since I purchased it 4 years ago.

Richard M.

21000 brand new when we bought it. Good value to own but not good for resale, We'd only get about 2000 for it if we try to sell it.

Daniel B.
