A nice lady that needs ones care
In the 20000 kilometers that I drove the car, which was very well serviced by its first owner, it blew all head and rear lightbulbs, there was a coolant leak, the blower and its illumination stopped working, the starter broke, new tires had to be bought, the front brakes had to be exchanged, the whole steering mechanism was replaced and it still makes noises in the front suspension.
There are just all these little things which in their sum make this car quite expensive to run. Well, it never really left me, besides the time when the starter broke. I could still push it to start.
It is a very comfortable car. It has all the nice electric features that you can expect from a car in that class. The engine is accelerating pretty fast and the high-speed is okay, too. If you push it, it will do about 190 km/h. In the Aura version the interior is really nice if you like the design. The looks try to spread a impression of a high quality standard. For a French car, there are very few rattles but they differ very much, depending on the temperature. Sometimes, they are very annoying.
Although it has many faults, I love that car and I love the brand!
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
