In general it is a nice car, but not perfect


From the beginning, I have the problems locking the car by remote. It does not react on the first command after driving, exiting and leaving the car to shut and lock the doors.

So I have to press mostly twice to see and hear the locking.

The dealer cannot help, the problem is not known.

General Comments:

I like more or less the car, but the interior is very dark.

The fuel economy with start stop is about 6.5 - 7 liters, so my 23 year old Volvo 240 took about 7.8 to 9 liters. This is not a big step forward.

The comfort is very nice, the space is gigantic, but to look outside, it is not that easy, like it was in the Volvo, so I don't feel secure in the flowing traffic.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
