Cars. . . Leather seats, heated seats, cooking seats and telescopic steering wheel.

Do not have any as of right now. . . Need tires for other. . . Love my car. . It is comfortable drives good and love all the features it has to offer. . Nice chrome tires tinted windows heated seats cooling seats. Tilted steering wheel Bluetooth boss radio. . . And most of all it is my white lightening.

That it has very good gas mileage and speeds up at an excellent pace.

The only thing I dislike about my car is that when it rains it's hard to see from the rear view camera it has. I like how I can connect my phone and not have to struggle to answer it. I also like how it tells me everything I need to know about the oil, water, tires, and everything else about the car.

- Carmen C

It is a comfortable care that has so far been very reliable.

It is a really great vehicle. I haven't had it for a full year yet but the ride is excellent and comfortable! I would recommend this vehicle to others who are looking for affordable luxury. It is not a big fancy brand but the model is fancy and offers the same luxuries.
