Summary:

This car kills 2.0 chevrolet's for a living

Faults:

4 axle joints in 4 months.

Air conditioning fan broke, had to bypass it to start A.C.

Headlights are candles, even with xenon.

Parts are expensive, too expensive.

Accelerator cable broke, never replaced, just tied with a shoelace and tie-wraps, 2 years now =)

Noisy tranny when downshifting.

Electric seats not working every time I need.

Lots of expensive electronics that WILL break sometime.

General Comments:

It is a monster out on the highway; fast, silent and making 16 km/l, ten miles per one litre of gas.

Loves the higher revolutions, feels like a racer.

17 inch wheels make this baby climb any wall.

Extremely comfortable anywhere.

Rides great when loaded too.

One of the best cars I ever had. My son was born, and brought back home in it. I'm keeping him now.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
