This little sedan is sporty yet handles the roads extremely well.

My car is very sporty looking, is fun to drive and handles the road and road conditions extremely well. It's an All wheel drive vehicle, which I love because it handles the snow and rain really well. I always feel safe when I'm driving.

- aimee c

It's a nice driver, and it's luxurious but the backseat is somewhat small.

Good easy upkeep. Warranty was able to cover a lot of the problems and any recalls. The downsides are the cost of premium gasoline and as it is an older car swapping out things such as brakes, tires, and battery.

- Philip P

It gets pretty good gas mileage on the freeway

It gets really good gas mileage. While it is getting older now, it still looks pretty stylish for It's age. It has enough space for a car seat and trunk space for a stroller
