Worst car ever. Swerves when you pass a truck in the next lane at 55 mph. Noisy. Had to buy a seat cushion so I didn't feel the ribs of the cheap seat. Noisy. Noisy. Poor A/C, poor heat. Hate this car.


Love my Suburu Impreza

Great car. Great Price. No complaints. Just the right size for me, mainly for visibility. I've upgraded to more bells and whistles than I had before. Love the backup screen for parking. Love the miles per gallon at 32. The car has great pickup - just what you need when you need it.


Excellent Car, Excellent Dealer

Awesome car, awesome dealer (Autobarn in Countryside IL). Rides great, good gas mileage, comfortable, looks sharp, excellent safety features, dealership sweetened deal with extras, worked with us to get monthly payment down.
