Summary:

Maintenance free car - I love it

Faults:

Both seat heaters died at 250000km.

Poor plastic parts in the front grille.

Trunk hatch absorbers dead.

Trunk hatch electric wire lines cut and broken.

Front wheel bearings.

General Comments:

This car has been extremely reliable.

It has run 300 000 km with routine maintenance; even the original shock absorbers lasted that long.

The body of this car is fully galvanized, there is no rust at all.

Seats are a bit uncomfortable.

Very nice car to drive.

The car is still going strong.

The motor should last 500 000 km.

Summary:

Very dependable!

Faults:

Both seat heaters have stopped working.

The plastic shield at the bottom of the motor is very weak. I replaced it with an aluminium one.

Wires going to the trunk cover don't last, because they bend too much while opening/closing the trunk.

General Comments:

I bought this car 2006, and have driven 100 000 km with it.

It has been a great and very reliable car - basically only standard service has been done. What more can you expect from a car that now has 300 000 km?

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
