Summary:

Worst car I ever had

Faults:

1. Fuel pump failed.

2. Injector started leaking.

3. Gearbox oil leaked out.

4. Front axle started making a noise.

5. One windscreen wiper just broke off from the motor.

6. Sensor in the distributor failed.

7. Power steering started leaking.

And a LOT other problems.

General Comments:

Except almost zero reliability, the car isn't bad to drive, it's fast enough and pretty quiet on the highway, has a big trunk and it also has very good gas mileage, about 5,5L/100km on a highway.

Parts are cheap too, sadly you have to buy them a lot.

I've had Audi and I currently have BMW, and I can't imagine I would ever buy them so much parts...

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
