I am going to keep it


The ESP sensor warning light constantly on, the dealer states there is no fault showing therefore cannot fix it.

Battery only lasted 3 years, I have now switched to Delco.

General Comments:

I am in general happy with this car, it has never let me down, except of course for the previous battery.

It is great on long distance touring.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
