Summary:

A great family car

Faults:

Nothing had gone wrong with the car. It need only a preventive maintenance with the timing belt at 20.000 kilometres, due to a strange noise when idle.

General Comments:

This car is very underrated, but very reliable. The electrics were supreme, without a single failure.

The 1.8 engine is strong and smooth.

The ride is a bit harsh, but with good handling.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
