Summary:

My car has not let me down

Faults:

The car was supplied with a remote door opener, anti theft system and a central lock system, but the remote or the anti theft system broke down and then the central lock system was out too! A repair could cost a little, but also maybe 1 or 2 days work! So I want have it done.. at least until I will get more upset not having it.

The drivers seat is leaning to wards the passenger, I discovered I my self was always leaning that way during cruises... so the seat was not stronger than that, probably easy to fix.

General Comments:

My main complaint is about the manual gearbox, it is to "loose" it gives you a feeling of distrust! But it has not failed.

When you drive you sit to low, the kids complain about it. Though there is about enough space for the five of us, but a bit crowded since the kids are all young and use safety chairs. The back seat is not made for 3 such chairs and the center seatbelt is not 3 points. But in general, nothing has failed (but the anti-theft) it has taken me from place A to B upon every request, I have taken ti to the service as required to maintain the guarantee and there is nothing to complain about.!!! A reliable car, but does not add any joy to driving! It is rather dull.

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