- No trim specified for this review
- THIS CAR MAY BE A GAS SAVER IF YOU KEEP UP WITH MAINTENANCE, IT LOOKS GREAT, IS CONVENIENT
- NOT ENOUGH TORK TO IT NOR HORSEPOWER TO THE WHELL ESPECIALLY HAVING AN AUTOMATIC
I TOTALLY WOULD NOT RECOMMEND THIS CAR TO ANYONE. NOT HAVE I ONLY PERSONALLY EXPERIENCED DIFFICULTIES WITH THE CAR AS FAR AS MAINTENANCE BUT A FRIEND OF MINE HAD THE SAME EXACT ISSUES. THE LIGHTING OR HOUSING TENDS TO GO OUT, MY ENGINE LIGHT WENT ON NOT LONG AFTER I PURCHASED IT. ITS BEEN REALLY CONSUMING ALOT OF GAS AS IF ITS AN SUV OR SOMETHING. I'VE KEPT UP TO MAINTENANCE WTIH MY CAR AND SO FORTH, BUT THEN MY OVERHEATING LIGHT THEN APPEARS, COME TO FIND OUT THEY ONLY MAKE THE PART IN PLASTIC AND IT DOESNT COME IN METAL...SO THIS ALLOWS IT TO MELT AND OVERHEAT. WHAT DISSAPOINTMENT THAT WAS. AT ANY RATE, I'M EXTREMELY DISSAPPOINTED IN THIS CAR AND IM NOT THE FIRST. I FEEL LIKE I HAVE TO GO 50 MPH TO KEEP UP WITH THE LOCAL SIDE STREET DRIVERS. IT DOES NOT HAVE MUCH POWER IN IT AND THATS WHY IT BURNS SO MUCH GAS WHEN YOURE GOING UPHILL ON THE CAR.
