It's a little slow, but it's for anyone that doesn't do that much driving.

I love how the car just shows who I am as a person. Along with the price of the car. Also the color, I just love the color.

- Emily T

The best bang for your buck.

It is a great car.The car has great gas mileage .I drive alot and it is very dependable and I am hoping to pass it down.

- Rhonda R

The one most important thing is that this vehicle is light and quite quick.

No complaints, this vehicle handles very well, looks fantastic and isn't awful on gas unless you drive like a maniac.
