None, everything is excellent.

General Comments:

We bought a new Matiz for my wife last year, and I got very enthusiastic about the Lanos. Fortunately, I had the opportunity to find a good second hand one from the same dealer, in order to replace my old Passat.

I really enjoy my Lanos, though it's a little short in power (86 DIN). But, the dealer having bought my Passat, I paid in the end just a miserable 33000 French francs. Not so bad for such a nice car! I hope my next one is a Lanos SX (105 DIN)...

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
