Summary:

Once you drive it you cannot stay away for long

Faults:

Sorry English is not my first language!

The car has an interesting problem. Every time I start the engine a light starts to burn, indicating that one of the light bulbs has failed. When I press the brake it disappears and does not return until I start the engine again.

The car failed to pass the inspection on the first time. There were problems with steering and front brakes.

Then the driver's side windshield water failed. Also the rear light bulbs and sockets needed cleaning so they would work correctly.

General Comments:

The car handles very good in fast corners and on ice and snow.

Hi.

The light on your dashboard that's on after you started the engine, is a warning light for malfunctioning brake lights. It's always on when you start the car, and should turn off the first time you touch your brake pedal. When the warning light does not turn off after the first time you've used your brakes, one of your brake lights is not functioning.
