Summary:

'Feel good' car - money well spent

Faults:

Nothing has gone wrong yet, but I will have to replace some parts of the suspensions, due to bad road conditions here in Bosnia.

Right electric window motor is kind of sluggish, but works.

Just usual oil/oil filter replacement.

General Comments:

Very smooth ride on motorways, considering the age.

Fuel consumption makes me smile every month when calculating costs, about 5L of diesel per 100 km (42-45 mpg).

Handling is superb, the car follows your commands to the letter and feels very connected with the driver.

Lots of space in the front and the rear (I'm 2m tall and have no issues with leg room).

When you take into consideration automatic air conditioning, electric windows, nice looking alcantara seats (very comfortable), overall rich feel and good finish, enormous boot space, and the little things about the car that grow on you... I love it.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
