Over priced


Fit and finish is poor. Two of the leather seats aren't completely stitched. Carpet under the front passenger seat has a hole, so rust can set in if a drink spills.

I got a slow leak in a tire from a nail. Dealer wanted $50 to repair it, but agreed to do it for $10 like a gas station would after I complained to the service manager.

General Comments:

Front leg room is poor for both seats.

I wished it more towing power.

I wished Onstar was offered but it's not.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
