I love my vehicle. I love how fast it is and how safe I can be in it.

No problems. Excellent performance. Really comfortable. Excellent for commuting. It's a really reliable and stable car that can take you from the point a to the point b with no problems. Service is a little bit expensive but it is worth it. Really fast transition and one of the best engines for a small car. German production. It is not economy car.

Runs well and I run with it.

Since I got it never really had any issues with it. Make sure on any vehicle if you want it to last do oil changes on time and treat it with respect, as we cant get around without our vehicles. Also always make sure if a light comes on to check it out right always and don't ignore it.

- Mel P

Very reliable and it handles well in traffic.

Very reliable vehicle. Excellent gas mileage. Sporty, comfortable ride. Handles smoothly. Can handle various road conditions with ease. Very roomy interior. Plenty of legroom and headroom in the front and back seats. Excellent sounding stereo system.
