I love this car. Drives great, responds well, comfortable, stylish, great looking. This is a wonderful car. If you are looking for a luxury car at a reasonable price this must be a top contender

Beautiful car

Plenty of leg room and all the features that I need. Looks beautiful and drives beautifully. Easy to adjust to my long legs. Plenty of head room.
