General Comments:

Great car. Fantastic value for money. Have owned the car for 5 years now, and have never had a problem. All services were done on time. Only recently had to replace the drive shaft.

I am tall, and it is spacious; lots of headroom and legroom, and with the seats folded back, the storage is fantastic.

Highly recommend you buy this brand. I think the build quality, performance and reliability is the best I have ever had.

Only other problem was the "turning radius", which I thought was terrible. Other than that, a fantastic buy.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
