I'd never put kids back there in case of accidents.

Car doesn't do anything for me but I can see why Mission likes it. It's the perfect car for people who can't make up their mind yet feel compelled to still spend huge amounts on a car, so they just go for the brand to get it done and over with.

well yes, on that basis clearly you shouldn't buy it at any price. Remember, you also won't be able to sell it.
