A good business


Distortion in the speaker's sound in the driver's door.

Problem with the injection system.

General Comments:

In general terms, I am very satisfied with the car.

The problem with the injectors was not important since it was solved quickly and it was caused by a bad cleaning of the motor.

It is a very comfortable car, with good suspension, speedy and strong when it is required.

It is very economic, either in city or in open land.

The car has a very modern line that gets the attention, sport without falling in ends.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
