My car had a good sound system and seats.

I love the speakers in my car, the bass is really strong and I appreciate that because I didn't even have to buy a new sound system. There is a no-key feature I really like as well. My car is pretty techy and I love that, the colors of the lights in the car are blue and red which look stunning. The seats are very comfortable and leather, which is nice. I do not like soft seats. The seats on my car are almost like ones you can sink into.

One amazing ride! You will never what another vehicle.

I love this vehicle! Always reliable and drives very smooth, very comfortable for long car rides and very good on gas! The only problem I have is space but that is a small price to pay for such a great car. It drives amazingly smooth in the snow I never have to worry about getting stuck.

It runs great, fast, small and cute but have one only thing, waste of gas.

It waste lot of gas money, I would spend 15 bucks in only gas, only driving from home to work and may the store,
