Forgive me if this has been covered somewhere else...I couldn't find it.
Where are the proper point to place a floor jack to lift either the front or rear...not looking for the point for a scissor jack/jack stands.
Thanks

It has. Actually, there is a point where you can place the jack in the front, and it's just immediately behind where the plastic under tray ends. There's a steel plate with some divots in it that holds the load. I've used it several times.

Can't remember in the rear, and it's 4 below outside right now lol. And divots. Look up under the car from the side and you can see it right behind the plastic.

The manual will tell you to jack it on the pinch welds.

In the rear there's a hump just behind the suspension I believe slightly to the left of center of the car when looking from the rear. You'll know it when you see it.
