New car in the past week

by Bob Jackson from Huntingdon | September 02, 2019

I'm enjoying the car. The only difficulty that I've encountered is that I can't get XM satellite radio started in my car since the trial subscription had long expired by the time I purchased the car.

Worst car I have ever owned

by Debi62 from New Durham nh | June 28, 2019

I have owned many different makes of vehicles, this is hands down the most poorly designed vehicle ever the control buttons are on the floor so sand and dirt gets in the cracks and jams all the buttons

Very disappointed with the quality cx3 - 2016

by Modo from Canada Toronto | December 20, 2018

I've had so many thing go wrong with this car. Very disappointing. Poor quality. Airless conditioning stopped working. Infotainment system continually restarts in even 1 degree weather. Persistent noise from front end. Shoddy trim. Will likely sell and go back to my trusted Subaru Forester.
