Spark plug cables (wires) many times per year.

Clutch and disc set 3 times over the whole mileage (215k km).

Rear electric windows motors (complete crap) after 35 k km only.

Internal fabrics started to fall over after 100 k km.

General Comments:

The car has some good pros:

Very stable

Engine performance is good at high speeds.

Car handling was warm and fun to drive.

I always liked its manual transmission.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
