Summary:

Good 1st car for younger drivers

Faults:

Irritating sounds from the dashboard and driver door.

De misters sometimes work, sometimes don, t.Clicking noise from front suspension. (Ford service can't find the fault!) Cooler doesn't seem to function anymore. Rear right axle and brake drum were bent, and made a scary sound while driving (i felt like the wheel will fall of!).Due to lack of funds I just changed axle and drum (seems the car was bumped by another car in the rear right wheel).

General Comments:

The car is good so far.

I bought it in very good condition (apart from the minor defects).

Lot of equipment+

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
