This car sure met our needs and best of all, is the gas consumption @ 55 mpg highway. Its also Mercedes Benz quality and very quick.

Two people "get around " car it is AWESOME

by SEMac from Orlando, Florada | July 18, 2019

A very comfortable car for my all around purposes. 90% of the time, I am the only one in it. Easy to handle, a dream to park, economical to run and a good vehicle for long hauls. I travel between Orlando and Chicago at least three times a year. It easy to get in and out of, always has been reliable.

Fantastic little bee
