I wouldn't have picked it, but I do not want to trade it in now.
It was originally my mother's car. I do not think that I would have chosen this design myself-just the aesthetics are not my tastes enough to have made me look at other vehicles first. It is too boxy. I was a musician who was on the road up to 25 days out of the month 8 months a year, and I was often alone with just my 120 lb. 5 foot keyboard and 2. 5 foot cube of amplifier and the one thing that I can say in favor of this vehicle is that it would have been nice to have for the space and the relatively good gas mileage it gets. You can fold the seats down and fit a surprising amount of cargo in the back area and when you unload it, the seats flip back up easily and you are good to go. My boyfriend and I managed to pack a 3 over vintage sectional that I found online for an insanely reasonable price and I was sure that we were going to have to take two trips. But he and the seller managed to do it and I am looking at it now set up in the living room and that seems impossible. One thing that I absolutely dislike about this vehicle is the difficulty in backing up. It is not an easy car to change lanes in either. It has multiple blind spot areas and I thought it was just me. But I have let two different friends and a cousin use it for moving something and all three have started out with "it could just be me, but-" and proceeded to mention the same things. Two of them are guys, in case anyone was curious. Other than that, it is okay. Oh, the lights were left on when my dad was still alive and he jump started it and it has a feature where you have to go to the dealership if that happens or else it will not go into second gear or maybe it is their? Something weird with the transmission speed and testing. I was not living here when it happened and I cannot be sure if I have the right details.
