Love it

It’s really my first car and it is wonderful. The inside is definitely me and it drives so very smooth. Even with a cracked side mirror, it’s still an awesome car

Great car for the price!

I find this car reliable, great on gas, appearance is a +! The cost, miles on car and gas mileage were variables I considered when purchasing. I am overall very happy.
