Sturdy little rock hopper
- Rear door's rubber seal allowing water into cargo compartment - apparently the car had rear door bent before, this results in water leakage into car.
- Leak from water pump - replaced for little money.
- Driver's airbag actuator broken while realigning front axle (bought it like that)
I bought this car mainly because I was destroying the Jetta's suspension driving 12km of really bad road to my home. There is no point of comparison in terms of comfort and attention to detail, but when it comes to bad roads and 4x4ing, this car rocks.
Miss the roomy trunk though, but this little beast takes me where I want to go for less and without any expensive maintenance.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
