Summary:

Good car, terrible dealers

Faults:

Nothing has gone wrong as such, the only problem is a design fault with the hatch. If it is raining or the car has gotten wet, when you open the hatch about 0.5L of water pours straight into the boot area. Very annoying, made more so by the dealer we bought it off being extremely rude, and telling us: "it's a design fault, no point crying to me". He then had the gall to ask for a 10 when we did our new car survey on customer service.

General Comments:

Very good car, better on fuel than I expected, very zippy once the engine is over 3000, awesome boxer sound.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
