Turbocharger stops functioning after 140 km/h, so basically you will drive an SDI instead of TDI. Stopping/starting the engine makes the turbocharger work again. Maybe this problem is looking important, but honestly it doesn't really bother me because I'm not driving that fast usually, so I've never fixed it.

General Comments:

Poor handling.

Poor material quality inside.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
