Monday, March 7, my Altima was serviced because of the notice I had received about the hood latch may be defected. Cochran service people and sales people are ALWAYS very helpful. I shall return soon for a State inspection and make arrangements for a new vehicle.
2018 Subaru Forester 2.5i Review
My 2nd Subaru Forester
by Dave in Mansfield from Mansfield, TXD
May 16, 2019
My 1st Forester is a 2009 turbocharged model which is still going strong with 110,000 miles. The newer Foresters offer safety and convenience features mine doesn't have so I decided to upgrade. The 2019 Forester no longer offers the turbocharged version so I opted for a certified pre-owned 2018 XT Touring which has a turbocharger. I love the vehicle but because the turbo is no longer available, the used turbo versions have become quite pricey. I am keeping the old one for hauling dogs, lawn equipment and towing my utility trailer. The new one will be just for people for now.
The vehicle is just the right size. I am 6'4" and would appreciate a little more leg room and thigh support but the Forester is as comfortable as any other small SUV I checked. There is plenty of headroom. The turbo does require premium fuel and has a lower mileage rating. With the turbo and sports tuned suspension, it is a fun vehicle to drive and worth the money to me. In over 10 years, the older one left me stranded only once when a drive belt broke after 100,000 miles. Based on reviews, I expect the same reliability from the newer one.
I took my car in to be serviced and when I got in Chris, a service attendant walked me through everything, and got me set up in their lounge while I waited.
10 minutes later I received a text to ask if I needed anything and that my car should be ready shortly.
I was browsing the lot (possibly a new Jeep?) and Chris contacted me that my car was ready. I went to the service desk and Chris walked me through what they did and other information.
I was in and out in about 30 minutes and felt good that they explained everything to me and made suggestions for the future.
2017 Ford Escape Titanium Review
Two years no problems year then....
by Silvy from East Meadow NY
May 13, 2019
I’ve leased my 2017 Escape for two years now. The only problems I had with it were a remote key fob that didn’t work. At the two and a half year mark at 14,000 miles the check engine light comes on. Code reading shows a bad coil in the no. One cylinder. Dealer fixed it. Four days later light on again this time it’s the number 4 cylinder. Good no more problems
i like the car but the eco engine is woefully underpowered. Takes Forever to get it going. Space is good and I wish I had gotten the sync 3 entertainment system but sync is ok
All in all it’s nit bad but to make it better you have go go up in trim and of course price
I will not purchase or lease it again.
This vehicle is comfortable, handles well and feels sturdy and strong. Excellent suspension; barely feel any bumps in the road. Would definitely recommend this vehicle to anyone looking for a reliable SUV.
This car lives up to the hype! Fantastic features that entices the car connoisseur to total happiness. I originally wanted this CX5 for my wife but she insisted that I get and I'm extremely happy with it. Great on gas with all the pizzazz that it has!
The funnest(is that a word?!? Haha) car there ever was!! The power it has, is just a thrilling feeling that makes the ride that much better. Don’t regret the car one bit!!! The seats hug your body and are very comfortable! Lots of trunk space. Just a fierce look overall!
This car meets my expectations of comfort, quality, and on off road performance that most other suv's can't compare with. Jeep is comfortable for family and friends, and I can still venture out to areas where others wouldn't take the daily driver they have to rely on to get back and forth.
Nice styling- unlike some of the newer, outlandish Japanese & GM crossovers that look like they were designed by Stevie Wonder. . It's a real SUV -as it has as real 4WD with a low range-I can go anywhere with confidence. . Entertainment system and Nav are much more intuitive that that on my Audi. Has huge fuel tank- can go over 600 miles on the hwy.
I've had my 2018 crosstrek sport eyesight for 16 months so far--- on my THIRD RADIO so far--- AND 10 other VISITS to dealership for UPDATES, UPGRADES, REPROGRAMMING, etc--- thinking of seeing a LAWYER to SUE subaru for a FULL REFUND ---THAT way they can keep GUESSING ON THIER ON TIME, NOT MINE ANYMORE--NASA can send a spaceship FASTER to the SPACESTATION than subaru can fix their RADIO PROBLEMS--- E M B A R R A S I N G
Thank you to Jaison and CarSense for a great car buying experience.
I loved how at ease I was made to feel. I saw a car on the website. I called and told them I'd be in that evening. Going in I was expecting the typical runaround, questions, comments, and 5 minute test drive with some guy riding with me telling me things I already knew.
Instead Jaison met me at the door, handed me the keys, and said "Go see if if ya like it!"
No pressure, and when I said let's do it, he walked us thru the paperwork. Easy a pie.
Thanks again Jaison. It was a pleasure doing business with you.
2018 Volvo XC90 T5 Momentum Review
Do not buy R-Design if you have a car seat.
by Calcifer from Golden, CO
April 16, 2019
Drove a XC90 R-Design and liked this vehicle a lot. Seemed to have a great amount of rear legroom. Then we tried putting an infant car seat in the back. You have to push the front seat up so far that someone can't sit with their legs straight. Tried with a rear-facing toddler seat and the same issue. I cannot believe a car this big has this issue. So if you're looking for SUVs like this and you have a kid in a car seat, you may want to look elsewhere. We couldn't buy it due to this limitation.
