Very comfortable reliable runs really good

Has plenty leg room. Very comfortable feel safe in the car. Has interior components I need. Love the panoramic sunroof. The far is good on gas and he drives very well,


Comfort, convenience & confidence

I wanted quality, comfort and reliability and have it. The engine purrs Audi-style but may be too loud for those who prefer a quiet engine. We'll see how the transmission & maintenance go but so far so good+


Amazing upgrade!

Didn’t took me too much time to realize this car was worth buying! Comfort, style, performance, sport mode is amazing! We love it! The only problem we probably have is the car seat for my son. The back seat can not be adjusted, Otherwise the car is perfect. The Prestige package make things better, but I was expecting a remote start with it, Something That my 2011 Explorer had.
