Great Car - should not have stopped making it!!

The car is equal to if not better than the Cadillacs I have owned. The V6 is very peppy and yet gets great gas mileage on regular gas. I would gladly buy another but GM no longer makes it - dumb decision if you ask me.

Love This Car

This vehicle is fantastic. I bought it used in October of 2019 and I'm glad I did. Highly recommend it - fun to drive, easy on gas, lots of great features and CarPlay integration, etc.
