Summary:

There are better deals in the market

Faults:

Seats have started to wear badly, the drivers seat does not lock properly anymore.

A lot of electric problems, a spare bulb comes always handy as at least once a week a bulb will go off. Dealer service could not solve it.

The steering wheel vibrates a lot after 80 km/hour.

General Comments:

The car is in general OK for down town use, but it is dangerous to drive it in the highway. It is slow, does not accelate fast enough and the brakes cannot always be trusted. It should had been ABS fitted.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No

General Comments:

After 9 years, I'm still not bored with this car. The interesting part is that the design is practically still the same after 10 years of production. On top of that, we've changed over 10 (unused) cars in our family and this is the only trouble-free car we had.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
