Sucks — This car the worst I can I can imagine. It cost a lot to get this repair. It breaks so often that I always have to keep $1000.00 in pocket just in case it stop somewhere. It is piece of junk

Excellent Car, I Would Buy Another One. — I like that it is spacious, leather interio, I feel safe to transport my family in. It is a 100% reliable, and you too will feel safe transporting your family in it. The parts re expensive, but when you have it fully serviced you won't regret the money you spent.

Great Performance, Amazing Ride And Good Handling. Super Comfy. — A great car. Very good performance, smooth ride and quite tight handling for a car that size. Very comfortable and roomy, with a massive boot. Nice styling although a bit on the conservative side.

Overall Ok With Reliability — Nothing other than the numerous electrical issues over the years. Great overall performance and lots of storage in trunk. Great gas mileage and very comfortable seats for long trips. Paint is still intact after numerous car washes. Would recommend to a friend.
