Expecting More

I thought it would have a smoother ride,the seat belt sensor constantly goes off, just expecting more luxurious ride it’s good on gas on Newark streets they tear the body up

1.0

Worst car I ever bought

Is noisy, uncomfortable; not good for long rides because you will end up in the ER with a very bad headache; you need noise blockers.

5.0
