Summary:

This car is the most reliable vehicle I have seen throughout my young life

Faults:

After about 3000 km in Africa, the engine started to show signs of heating up, but after we changed the oil everything went back to normal.

General Comments:

This car is incredible. We took it in the desert in Mauritania, through rocks and sand, and after 500 km of this, the car didn't have a scratch and all worked perfectly even though it was 16 years old...

I was also surprised with the amount of space at the back. There is a lot of it!

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
