Summary:

It's an OK Korean engined, Italian designed and American labeled car

Faults:

Left front window couldn't be closed from the front left door (minor flaw).

Transmission is hard/difficult to move from gear 1 to 2 and gear 3 to 2. Other gears are fine.

General Comments:

Generally a good looking car and roomy for its class. Suspension is also better than other cars in its class.

A bit unstable when turning. Also low power/torque response. I only get around 8 KM/liter (20 miles per gallon) in city use. There must be something wrong because I expected around 12 KM/liter (30 mpg).

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