Summary:

This car really gives me sleepless nights

Faults:

Problem with the ignition which turned out to be a faulty cable to one of the sparkplugs (warranty).

Leak near the fuel pump (warranty).

Slipping gear which had something to do with a pressure or so. My dealer REFUSED to fix this under warranty and I had to write 2 letters to the import company and threaten them with legal action before it was going to be made under warranty. Now my car is after 4 weeks still in the garage and still waiting to be repaired.

This car really gives me sleepless nights.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
