nice car, bad radio reception

the radio reception is awful. when in town, i barely get any local radio stations. must be something wrong with the antenna or radio itself. but other aspects of the entertainment system work fine.

The perfect car

I love this car, drives smooth and saves gas . It’s perfect. The only thing when I bought it I didn’t realize that the grill was broken and missing a piece . I didn’t realize ( it’s not noticeable unless you get really close) until 2weeks later . Other than that the car is perfect!


  • Fuel Economy: Saves lots on fuel
  • Technology and Entertainment: It’s advanced technology and lots of options
  • Reliability: Never fails
