Could not be more happy with my purchase. Spotless and clean as a whistle. Drove live like a thoroughbred all the way home to Austin. Many positive features on it I was not aware of but I'm leaning how they function each day..Only negative was once on the highway I noticed 6-7 little stars on the windshield but this would not have stopped me from purchasing. Filled with gas in Austin and it said 657 miles to empty, that happens I'm coming back and buying everyone beer and BBQ.
