Handles well and seats are comfortable.

I like my car. It drives comfortably and handles well. It gets good gas mileage and has not had any recalls. The prices of parts and labor to fix the car are reasonable. The seats are comfortable and I like that there are controls for the radio and temperature on the steering wheel. I have had no issues with the car driving in the snow.

Like a Timex. Only with a lot more maintenance!

Shocks, oil, brake/power-steering fluid, radiator, a/c, battery need replacing/maintenance/repairs too frequently. While the driving experience itself seems like there is a delay in all areas, from steering to braking and even accelerating. While it has provided many hours of operation, I am not sure I would recommend this vehicle to others.

Good car rides smooth is electric windows and radio CD player.

I just bought it and it rides smooth it came with a bad Ty Rod and brakes though I was given the parts it still needs to be fixed inside there's a lot of room and CD player heat and air heated seats and so on. It is a metal car and big enough so if someone hits me it might less my chance of injury.
