This car is a dream


A check engine light was on.

Driver seat belt is not working well. I have to pull several times in order to engage it.

General Comments:

This car has great acceleration.

A little noise from outside can be heard. The car is really quiet.

Has a good looking, and has a lot of extras, like an on board computer, sunroof, etc.

Is very stable and responds well at high speeds.

The fuel economy is about 25 km/gal.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
