That it made for comfort and looks. Holds the road well.

Have no complaint. Started with a Ford. Roomy, stylist, have plenty of toy to help you navigate. Only thing I wish I had was forward beating when I get near cars.

- Melvin H

The smooth ride and the handling is great.

I like the ride, I like the handling. I like the styling. I have no complaints with this vehicle. I like about everything about this vehicle.

- Alan M

It's a brand new vehicle and I would like it taken care of.

It is brand new. my other car is 15 years old. Everything is updated, things i'm not used to. No complaints so far.
