It’s a good car.
December 14, 2018
I bought this vehicle for a couple reasons, the older I get, the harder it is to get in and out of some vehicles. Some sit too low, some to high. This is a perfect height for me. I also travel a lot, so I needed affordability. I’ve owned this car a year now. I drive a lot so it already has 32,000 miles on it. I bought it with 6 miles. The alignment was off right from the factory and was fixed. It immediately drove better, it’s still a bit rough but it could be the size of the car. Gas mileage I couldn’t ask for better, at 65mph I can get 45mpg. I live in upstate NY and it drives just fine in the snow. The transmission, the only way I can describe it, is it kind of slows itself down, similar to a manual, which makes it better in the snow.
The cons to this car. Geez, this is the most uncomfortable vehicle for long drives, the interior fabric stains with just water, so seat covers are a must, the A/C barely runs if the car is idling, you will sweat to death in traffic or road work in the summer.
This car fits my needs, great gas mileage and it’s super affordable. I don’t need a fast car, believe me it has zero ‘get up and go’, so don’t try to cut someone off. This is not a car you will win races with, but it drives steady and is reliable, and affordable.
