Slow, but very comfortable
Ball joint (annual test failure).
Valve stem seals resulting in high oil consumption.
Heater matrix was leaking when bought.
ABS sensor intermittently inoperative when bought.
Ignition module gave up at around 160K.
The cars handling is very good.
Underpowered, but OK on the motorway (16V Turbo should be just fine).
Spacious and elegant design.
Very bad illumination from the head-lamps.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
