General Comments:

The car is really great in all the ways.

It is very comfortable and easy to drive.

Even if you like to drive quick, this car will not disappoint you.

Also the original stereo sounds great, having a four speaker system, or a plus one, with two extra tweeters on the dash.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
