So far, so good
March 18, 2019
I purchased this car because I wanted a small SUV to get in and out of. Sedans are lower to the ground and I found they were hard to get out of as I get older. I find that this car has a horrible blind spot when looking to the right, as the passenger headrest is in the way of traffic. The cloth seats get dirty fast and the plastic handle to pull the door shut is also dirty from only 2 months of use. Because the interior is black, the dirt shows more. The back-up camera does not show the lines sometimes, which is annoying. And one last annoying feature is that the trunk is smaller than my Mazda 3x trunk! A single baby stroller does not fit into the Trax trunk without putting down a rear seat. I also don't like that the trunk doesn't pop open with the fob. You have to use a hand to open the trunk. That is annoying when shopping. So, to the good/great stuff about my Trax. I think it is super comfortable. The ride is very smooth and I can maneuver around better than I thought I would be able to. The radio is great (although there is no CD player). I like that I can remove the rear headrests so that I can see out the back window. There are not many bells and whistles on the SUV, but I do love the drive and love it even more when I am at the gas pump. I think I get about 28 mpg. I got it certified so I hope to keep this car for many, many years. I just have to keep cleaning the door handle! I would recommend it for anyone who needs a less expensive SUV that drives great, saves on gas, and is cute as a button.
