Terrible vehicle, has been nothing but issue after issue. From airbag replacements to transmission problems . Was without the car for 2 months, and still waiting on parts to this day. Terrible vehicle, terrible dealership, and terrible service department.


Fantastic, comfortable, economical, and spacious

Have used this as our travel vehicle since we purchased it several years ago and it has proven to be one of the best we have owned particularly relative to its spaciousness, comfort, reliability, and economy.
