We really liked this car. You wouldn't believe what we hauled in the back. Bricks, lumber, kitchen table and oh yah a little over a half a ton of flagtone. It was our truck! This car has been very reliable and has exceptional gas milage.
The fold down back seats so that you can haul almost anything. I can't count how many time I bought something and the guy loading the car shuck his head in disbelief saying "I didn't think it was going to fit"
If planning a trip in the mountians allow extra time to get there. It has no guts on the hills!
