Summary:

Happy

Faults:

Has only had support, there was no incident.

135000 - replaced clutch.

135000 - replaced relay REM.

135000 - replaced 4 absorbers.

135000 - there is noise from the hydraulic pump and vacuum pump, but it still makes no problem.

General Comments:

The car is solid, strong and safe.

It has stable handling, and with ease can drive 1200-1500 km a day. Fuel cost for intercity driving is within 6-7 liters per 100 km - about $12/100 km (62 miles). In city driving congestion, fuel consumption is up to 8 liters per 100 km - about $13/100 km (62 miles).

Maintenance is expensive. I've often replaced suspension parts.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
