Summary:

A very solid, reliable boat

Faults:

Well, let me think here... oh yes, I remember my son always complaining about how the passenger heated seat didn't always work. When I got a flat tire the people at Les Schwab put on the wrong tire... I don't see how they could have done that!, and the tire pressure monitor refused to shut up.

General Comments:

This car was a beauty to own. I traded it in for a 2006 BMW X5 4.8is (you might find my review in that section). This car accelerated with gobs of toque, and I was pretty astonished at how it did. The handling was also impressive, with no body roll or anything. I got the Li version because I often have to drive clients around town, so they were always very comfortable.

I got many stares from this car, especially driving down the freeway at 80, flying past everyone. 0ver all, this is a very reliable, solid car and I have never lost faith in it once. So, if you can afford the 1200 dollar a month price tag, I highly recommend this car to you, and you will be glad to purchase one!

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
