Summary:

Magic carpet ride

Faults:

The damn shock absorbers break with 20000 km, the rear and the front ones, and they cost you a fortune, almost 500,00UDS each one!!! Those are the ones with the air pocket inside that regulates the height of the car.

Despite this expensive problem, the car didn't give me any further problems.

General Comments:

It is very comfortable, it's like a magic carpet ride, the engine runs smoothly. And the top speed is reached quick (to very), that is 215 kph, 0 to 100 in 9.8 seconds.

It's a very decent car, but don't pay a fortune for it!

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
