The car is very responsive and is an extremely quite on highways. It has reasonable gas consumption. The interior is comfortable and the 6-way power drivers seat is wonderful.
There has however been far too many things that have gone wrong with the car. It spent at least 20 days in the shop in 3 years of driving. I leased this car and will not purchase it at the end... the buyout is horrible.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
