5.0

Very comfortable car.

Did everything well. Mine was ex-rental vehicle. No ABS or DVD player. Decided to upgrade in 2013. Main problem was very low trade-in value as a discontinued model.

4.0

Inexpensive with turning radius not all that great

Good for the $$$$. Inexpensive but, durable. Turning radius could be better. Style out of date. Comfy seats. Accelerates quickly. Options adequate. Cruise control not as good as GM vehicles.

4.0

It’s good

This car is perfect for my needs, not super flashy but it gets me from point a to b, would recommend to my friends and family
