Not bad car. Gets you from A to B, but not to C and D


Hubcaps fell off on separate occasions.

Engine blew three times at 150,000, 200,000 and 250,000 Km.

Rear lights keep on blowing up.

Clock keeps on resetting.

Antenna doesn't get good reception.

Axle has bent on 2 separate occasions.

Brakes have failed on 5 separate occasions.

Seats are very uncomfortable, and the seat doesn't move up and down.

The car always leaks oil, even after services.

General Comments:

This car is OK for your short drives from your home to the shops, but not for long distance traveling.

Not very powerful when pulling a trailer.

It gets you from A to B, but not to C and D.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
