Overall:

This particular car showed it sustained structural damages. However there was no explanation or records available of exactly what that entailed. Not a deal killer but definitely a red flag. The suggestion was I somehow bring a mechanic with me to inspect the vehicle. That is not a realistic option for obvious reasons not to also mention I am 150 miles away from the dealership. Thanks.

Overall:

i got a great deal! and for that i am super excited. however, there are ZERO bells and whistles on this car being a base model. i understand that typically those are extra, but when i say that there are none, i mean NONE. however, there is a lot of space, the all wheel drive is a dream and the car has great pickup. sadly, ive only driven it to the grocery store bc of this pandemic, but i cant wait to go on a roadtrip! i give this car five stars for safety. and that is what is most important to me as i commute with my daughter daily.

Overall:

Very solid car for the price. Has more up to date “bells and whistles” than we need. Nice interior roominess, and large cargo area. We are very satisfied.
