Do the normal upkeep to ensure your repair cost do not go up if not needed.

It is great on gas has more than enough room for 5 adults. Enough room for a car seat and legroom is amazing. Only downside if it is not under warrants the repairs have ran no less that 350 (which was to replace a battery).

- Julian F

It gets great gas mileage.

I like the fact that the car rides very smooth and its nice to ride. But the bad thing about the car is that if the car ever brakes down it is very expensive to fix and the parts are not cheap.

- Pearl G

If you cannot afford high oil change or premium gas, stick to non-luxury cars.

I like the fact that it is a car and gets to me where I need to be. However, the previous owner didn't treat it good so it has malfunctions. And the gas is too expensive.
