We love the Bora
No. 2 spark plug lead blew. Replacement cheap but awkward.
The mini disc player (not popular here) does not go. Just as well there is a 6 stack CD player in the boot!
Funtastic! Loads of features and great to drive.
Solid, stable ride with all interior comforts.
Heaps of control knob lights for night driving - especially good for navigating the great stereo in the dark.
Fuel efficiency rates 42MPG best on highway and 32 MPG on average around town though the tyres must be smaller than spec as the speedo registers 57KM/H when the car is actually doing 50Km/h.
The V5 is a serious performer, but I prefer less performance and better fuel economy as with the 2.0L model.
Maybe we are lucky in New Zealand where we get used imports made in Germany ex=Japan! Imports from America in any brand tend to get bad reports for reliability here.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
