Very pleasure to drive


My water pump was broken when I buy the car and I replaced it. The coolant system needs one liter fluid per 1000 kilometers still. Maybe the head gasket is broken.

Stabilizer bar bushing dropped away when I had driven on the rough road.

Awful rattling noise comes from inside the door panels and dashboard.

General Comments:

The car is very comfortable and I really like to drive whit it.

The gearbox works like a dream, but I afraid that it will be broken. I've heard that automatic gearbox faults are very common.

The car is very easy to drive at high speed and the fuel consumption is good expect town-driving.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
