Summary:

Great car, but little things can and will go wrong

Faults:

Brake light switch faulty after I had had the car for 2 months.

A squeaky/tapping noise coming from under the dashboard a week after I got the car.

Replaced both headlight and both tail lights in the first 3 months of having the car.

Seat belt squeaks.

A knock from loose trim has developed in the back.

Sunroof switch faulty and needs to be replaced.

General Comments:

It's a great car, handles really well. Economy is great, it being a diesel. However it's just little things that have been irritating. The seats are great on long journeys.

Sometimes when going up hill, it will be going strong, then it feels like it's just run out of puff; even downshifting doesn't help.

Love the car; not sure if I would buy another one though.

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