It is a comfortable car that has a luxurious feel to it.

It is a beautiful vehicle with tolerant gas mileage there are just certain things I do not like about the car in general. I tend to work on my cars myself and it is just different under the hood than most cars I work on. Overall a great vehicle and I would buy another one.

- Megan M

It is an good car if you're going to use it only for work and home, if your going on a road trip I wouldn't recommend it.

I like my car a lot because it was my first car, as it was my first car it had problems to. Sometimes the car would break down and I would have to call a tow to take the car. Another problem is that the car has its abs engine flashing.

- Ibragim S

That is it a gas hog and that it does pretty good in the snow.

It is spacious and fast. I like the fact that it is has a back camera. The only dislike is the premium gas.

- Michelle S
