My car is a great all around car

I've had to fix the window a recently. And the starter ,but other then that I love my car. I've use it to move and was able to pack most of my boxes in my car.

Take out back seats when you want them out and there are no major recalls

I dislike there are only 4 seats. I enjoy the versatility of taking out my back seats. I enjoy that it is somewhat compact to fit into smaller spaces.

The Perfect Vehicle I have owned for five years is in excellent condition

The vehicle is reliable and perform very well except that it make a really strange noise when I am driving and press on the brakes.
