This car is a beast!

General Comments:

This car might weigh 2 tons, but it handles like a car half it's weight.

Not much else can match this car for comfort and handling at speeds over 100mph.

Supportive seats and very responsive air conditioning.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
