Nothing has gone wrong with this car.
A lot of people say these car are not properly built, lacking quality.
But with my own time in keeping this car, and of many friends who keep them; they all say the same as me; service, service, service, and the problems never happen.
To start off, mine is the 6g72 DOHC 24v 3.0 V6 169.4kw motor. Very great motor in how it works. Gives plenty of power at low RPMS of 1,500-2,000rpm, and even up to 7,000rpm.
The 5 speed auto is class leading. Never gets lost for gears. Also away of what is going on. Very good range of gear selection as well.
The best part is at 100km/hr it sits at 2,000rpm.
As for the comfort of the car; it is class leading. The competition; Honda, Ford, Holden, Toyota, and many many more, are years behind in styling, comfort and power.
For servicing the car, it is just the price I would expect from a large engine front wheel drive.
To run the car, it is so cheap. Driving very carefully on the highway, you get down to 7.5lt-100kms. But more reasonable is 9lt - 100kms.
I am always getting up to 750-800kms out of a tank driving around town. And that is from a 70lt tank.
The car is way better on fuel than my old 1.8 Galant or newer Toyota Camry 2.2. Better than the silly Civic I use to own.
Best car I have ever owned, and will always buy more of this model.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
