basic

by RICKI from Marietta on Fri Nov 13 2020

everything is manual. might as well be a 2005. oh. they added fake leather, heated seats, sun roof, and "apple carplay" which may or may not work - depending on what day it is. the graphics and software is very out of date. Not worth the money. gas mileage is nothing impressive.
