Great car! Would buy another vehicle from these gu

Daughter loves car! Car runs great,also needed an extra key. They took care of that quickly. Bobby was friendly and efficient at his job,we will shop there again! Also recommend to others!


Still love it

Had this car for 3 years now and it still puts the same smile that it put on day 1, absolutely love it, it'll surprise you when you accelerate for the first time while the cornering is superb.


Best car I've ever owned

Runs and drives perfect. Very comfortable and incredible gas mileage. Interior lay out is great with power sun roof and the ability to change the interior light color on demand.
