Reliable, good car to own
When I first got it, I received a list of things from the previous owner of what was wrong with it. These included a 95% blocked radiator, torn CV boots, faulty cooling system causing the car to overheat, faulty alternator belt, faulty horn, exhaust pipe broken off, faulty brake caliper.
Fixed the major problems like (radiator, CV boots and cooling system) immediately after I got the car, and it hasn't really been giving me any problems since.
Runs very well, a very reliable car once the problems are fixed. Very spacious interior, extremely comfortable seats (could sleep on them!), large boot, cool electric windows. Working air conditioner and heater. Extremely good acceleration, powerful engine.
Expensive to fix though, as parts are often hard to find, or some repairing jobs, which are easy and quick with other cars, are particularly difficult with this car (according to my mechanic).
Otherwise, a good car to own, very fuel efficient, has a minor electrical problem that causes my radio to reset itself every time I turn the engine off, so I always have to key in the security code for it to turn on when I start the car.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
