Summary:

An affordable European designed car which meets all its requirements in its class

Faults:

The steering shaft wasn't properly installed, making the steering wheel looked unaligned when driving in a straight line. Had to bring it for service many times to find out the real problem. Clanking noise when braking, ends up being the emergency brake needing an adjustment.

General Comments:

A family car which meets all its requirements being one. Not a performance car, but a rather noisy engine during high acceleration. Very comfortable in its price range. Spacious interior with no nonsense redundant design.

Summary:

Good car compared to its price

Faults:

RPM speed unstable (shows above 2000RPM) when idle at 6500km. It's has been fixed by the dealer within couple minutes. Thanks.

General Comments:

This car is having good exterior looking, the cabin is spacious and comfortable seat, but not enough space to put golf bag.

With this 1.6 litre engine capacity, don't expect too much when you take it along the hilly road or terrain.
