Schwinn model question

Anyone here own or have ridden the Schwinn Coronado comfort bike?
I was thinking about getting one to use as a second "beater" to use
instead of punishing my Trek.I am hoping for some feedback on ride
quality,handling,braking,etc.Any input is appreciated.Thanks in advance.

The Big Box Store Schwinns aren't on their website. Just the LBS models.

For the same money you can get a comparative low end bike with professional assembly and service.

That's because the bikes are built exclusively by contract with parts and materials specified by the Xmart.
