I am enjoying driving my new car

The technology on the car is phenomenal . The car drives great and is a very comfortable ride. The hybrid mode is great around town. It saves a lot on money on gas!


No issues at all

Great vehicle for commuting and road trips from Virginia to Pennsylvania. We use it for daily trips and also for trips back to home to watch football and visit family.
