Summary:

Close to perfect

Faults:

Exhaust gases penetrate into the cabin.

It seems the EGR assembly has gone wrong.

Or the luggage compartment sealing band has worn out.

General Comments:

Very comfortable car.

The rearward visibility however is awful.

The front wiper sends water into the cabin.

I just wonder what exactly SD means - if Soft Diesel, as suggested, what is Soft Diesel itself?

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
