Clutch needed replacing.

CD player only works intermittently.

General Comments:

I live in the tropics and the car handles the road very well in the wet.

The rear door is very heavy to close.

Too many things compartments that are of no use.

Long distance travel becomes uncomfortable.

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