Summary:

A high maintenance luxury bargain

Faults:

Traction control problems which are apparently caused by water in the ABS pump.

No other major hassles but the suspension seems to be wearing out prematurely (noisy shocks and sway bar).

General Comments:

Comfortable car but not very fuel efficient, my old Peugeot was a 2.2L, running on higher octane and it does not seem to have been any more expensive.

A good car when going well and very nice to ride in, but pity help you when they break.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
