Summary:

A comfortable fast car with some off-road ability

Faults:

Nothing so far.. Only had it a few weeks. Clock is stuck on Japanese time which apparently can't be changed.

General Comments:

Fast quiet and comfortable. Took 4 adults and their luggage on a 3 week 5000 km tour of New Zealand with no effort. Dealer provided an English manual which shows the operation of the Japanese marked stereo and trip computer. Tried it a little off-road in soft sand and wet grass. No problems. Also hauled a heavy trailer full of firewood up a steep gravel road with no slipping.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

Is there by any chance anyone with an English manual for this car in electronic soft copy that we all can share?
