Front strut went bad at 40,000 Kms.

MAF sensor filed at 50,000 Kms.

General Comments:

The car is very good performer for its size and engine, and with just 100 HP, it can get to 60 in less than 11 seconds, with a top speed of over 220 km. The handling is superb, as I have the Sport package, and the braking is almost a class leader.

I test drive many cars, just like the Vectra, Corolla and Civic, but nothing compares to the handling or the toughness of the body of this car.

It is safe (loaded with air bags) and comfortable to drive. The engine is little bit slow, but once you are up to speed, you can get up to 7.2l/100 km.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
