"I love this car, even though I purchased it used with close to 50K miles, it was certified and runs great. Awesome stereo and has a ton of power when needed, even in "eco" mode, which is what I drive it in as the city gas mileage is not great, but highway is pretty good."
Well appointed, but like many cars today, could have a better spot to rest a phone while charging/navigating as part of the car as opposed to a separate bracket/holder.
I think this speaks for itself.
Drives and handles beautifully.
Rear seating is a little tight behind driver seat for 6'+ drivers.
As noted above, city gas mileage is not great, but highway mileage is good.
