Summary:

A low priced Lexus

Faults:

The transmission pinions had problems at 80,000 miles, replaced the whole transmission, it was much cheaper than I thought.

General Comments:

Excellent car, performs very nice those 190hp.

Superb crash results, indeed, I crashed this car at 120km/h and rollover, incredible I only had a few scars in my arm and that was all.

A little noise from air coming from outdoor when going at high speed on highway.

Excellent 7 Speakers Audio System.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
