Best car I've owned

Was a previous rental. Owned it almost 10 years, never had a problem. Good power, comfortable, lots of room. Be aware these tend to have transmission issues, but this one didn't. Change fluids often, and you should have no problems for many more years.


I truly love it but I have to sell it.

Very satisfied driving it. It is very comfortable and I always took care of by having it checked regularly. It is very well Maintained. I would highly recommended.


Sound, reliable car. Gets you there. I like it.

Meets all my needs. Beware of blind spot on passenger side. You might hit a police car. That is, if you are short like me. Understated but dependable.
