I absolutely love this car, plain and simple. It is a beauty to look at, and in the winter it is wonderful with the AWD. I swear by this car honestly, I wish it didn't get wrecked a couple months ago, and even after it was in a BAD accident, it still ran!
It had some problems, so don't get me wrong LOL, but all in all it was literally one of the best cars I've ever owned. The Bose sound was pretty good; I think if it was newer it would've been better personally. 6 CD changer, but who uses CDs anymore?
Highway gas mileage was adequate I'd say, got around 25 MPG, longest distance I drove was about 300 miles, and then around 300 back of course; it handled great honestly. Even drove to the mountains in it, high altitude, and the steep hills took a little toll on it TBH, but it still made it there and back no problem.
The heated front and REAR seats were wonderful, sunroof, slight tint that automatically came with the car. The only thing that made me upset was that it did not have steering wheel controls for the radio. Honestly, I'm looking to get this car again, maybe a newer one though. I live in Philadelphia and last winter was terrible, and I hear that we're getting a repeat, but with this car I totally felt safe (and new tires helped LOL). Now I'm looking to get a Lincoln LS, but IDK yet.
All in all, if you're looking for a great looking, pretty reliable car, I'd say go for it!
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
