Budget and sporty


Both doors had water seeping through. Dealer replaced rubbers.

Car has bad alignment, although easy to handle and sometimes very light.

Dashboard light gave up.

When driving fast the noise is very low! However, lots of noise from wind.

General Comments:

It's a good car, nice design, the Shine version is sporty and I like it in general. I had a bad experience with the dealer though. Not much help.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
