Summary:

Good budget luxury car

Faults:

The window heating failed (in the winter) and later appeared to be a blown main fuse. Sound system sometimes freezes. Switching off the engine and restarting solves the problem. Limit switch of the sun roof fails to stop when sun roof is closed, so it opens back again. Same the opposite way.

General Comments:

Huge car to drive with plenty power, only the gearbox reaches its limit at 100 MPH on German "Autobahn". The car could go faster. At high speed, extreme good comfort and stability. Very economical. Seats are OK, but passenger seat does not have electric controls. Reliable piece of steel.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
