Great car for the brave individualist


A/C not working when bought - leaking hose.

Front suspension strut mounts worn.

Various annoying minor electrical faults (blown interior bulbs, wrong warning messages) - nothing serious.

General Comments:

Vastly underappreciated car which is very comfortable and capable. Body, interior and engine appear bullet-proof and should last a long time. Requires steady and knowledgable maintenance to remain trouble free.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
