Summary:

Wonderfully built and designed sports sedan

Faults:

Small radiator leak.

I have replaced many wear items as maintenance (I'm a stickler for keeping things well maintained!)

Some suspension rubber components need replacement - it's feeling a bit "squirrely" at high speed, and on windy uneven roads :-)

General Comments:

Handles VERY well, watch the tail in the wet though... it can come round to bite you if you are not careful at speed!

Parts are a lot cheaper than for our previous Toyota.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
