Summary:

Not as good as it claims!

Faults:

Bad front wheel geometry.

Broken front wheel bearings.

Fire whilst driving in the city (battery and electric system).

The car starts only when it wants.

Brakes are not very strong for this size and type of a vehicle.

General Comments:

I was expecting more from this car. It is very comfortable and very performant, but one year of troubles made me not to buy another French car.

Too many troubles in 20500 Km and one year.Disappointing.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No

Don't you think your decision not buy another French car just because one particular car of one particular make gave you some trouble is a bit extreme?

To be fair, a car is generally the second most expensive purchase after a house, so it's nice to have a good one!
