Reliable/ nice looking mid size car.

Great mid size car. Hugs the road, easy on gas, comfortable seating in the front but very uncomfortable sitting in the back of the car. Accelerates quickly making it easier/safer on the interstate. This car also has a great stereo system which I totally love.

- Melissa K

The most important thing about my car is that it is very safe.

I like the safety features of my car. I also like that it gets amazing gas mileage. It has a very nice smooth ride. The only downfall is that I wish it were bigger now that I have a child.

- Erin W

Drives really smoothly and comfortable.

I love this car. The only complaint I have is the way the console is set up. I am constantly bumping my elbow on anything I have in the cup holder. It is just awkward.

- Dee P
