Reliable and cheap

It’s great I love it. It was very affordable and not to mention I haven’t had a single problem at 81,000 miles. Hopefully it stays that way I hear the weak point is it’s Nissan CVT transmission but I change the fluid for it every 20,000 miles and no problem for me.

4.9

Excelente

Muy buen vehiculo, muy comodo y seguro. Tiene muy buena potencia del motor y es economico. Calidad del motor excelente. El interior se pudo haber trabajado un poco, por ejemplo la calidad del sonido de vehiculo es bueno, pero la configuracion del mismo es muy limitada.

4.7

Switchable drivetain

I like the car, it switches between 4lock, awd and 2wd on the fly. It comes with a moonroof, a Rockford fosgate system with sub.
