The aftermath of purchasing a used car.

My car was used when I bought it. I have had to get several things fixed before it could perform efficiently. Such as a new battery (the previous owner put the incorrect one and resulted in me having to call up someone to jumpstart my car for me, several times. ), replace the old green and gross antifreeze with new antifreeze solution, windshield wipers, and a radar. On the bright note, I love how my seats can warm up when it is chilly in the morning, along with the button features to adjust my side mirrors and even defrost them! My only suggestion if one were to purchase a used car is to make sure the car runs efficiently and if possible, ask the previous owner or see for yourself if you are going to have to take care of the aftermath of how the car has been taken care of in the past. I love my car but sometimes it can be annoying to find out you have to fix or replace parts because you choose to buy a used car, rather than new. Best of luck to future car buyers.

I love the fact that you can drive it as an automatic or a standard.

My vehicle rides great and is reliable but there is a shake in the rear end that has not been resolved. Found out when buying breaks make sure to buy the more expensive ones because if not the brakes go fast and then the rotors. I like how the seats heat up in the winter, it comes in handy. The air bags that are located in the sides of the seats are a nice safety feature that I did not know it had. I do know that the transmissions are known for blowing up in the year of the car I have. There was a recall and it was done on my car but I am still worried about the transmission going in it. Otherwise, it is a very comfortable car to ride in even on long car rides.

It's a reliable vehicle that runs great.

Love the interior. Leather heated seats and a nice wood looking trim in the inside. Has a CD player (Although I wish the stock radio came with AUX output) Has a good amount of space for everyone who sits in it, front or back. Has nice Bose speakers. The mirror lights don't work, and the volume dial doesn't work well. It has radio controls on the steering wheel which is nice, but sometimes that takes a minute to work. It runs just fine, definitely gets me where I need to go. The maintenance required light is on right now and I'm not sure what needs to be done. When I turn the AC on, water will pool up under my car from it dripping out.
