I love the auto start I love the camera and hands free I was disappointed w the number of recalls and the length of time for parts to come in

Fantastic car!

Car is better than expected. Wish it had a little more leg room in the back. Other than that minor detail for me. Already thinking of next car. I want to give a big Thank You to Nobu in the service dept. went in recently for service. Nobu provided me with prompt,and professional care. With staff like this I will gladly do business with mark Christopher dealership.

Great value for the money

Needed a commuter car small enough for the whole family to drive. I picked up a 2018 for a great price. Many I saw had lost a lot of value. Love all the high end features. I am 6 foot 3 and the comfort and fit are great. Hooked to my phone I get great radio. Heated seats etc and so nice to have. Yes it's slow. But I'm ok with that.
