Great used car

My old car was very very old. What a relief to have a much much newer car. Now I don't feel the stress of driving to Tyler or anywhere, just enjoyment.

Most reliable car I have ever owned

This car met all my needs very quiet very comfortable, much nicer than a same size BMW, you will not be disappointed. GM will have a hard time replacing this most comfortable car.
