In the past three years where it had covered the last 20K kilometres, I had to spent heaps of money to keep this baby in shape. Major repairs and replacements were within the transmission (gearbox & coupling), suspension system, exhaust, power steering, electrical system, and few interior problems such as the power windows, power door locks and trims.

I can't quite remember the exact fault details. I'll comeback with deeper comments if I may.

General Comments:

I truly believe that its worth the spending, since I love this car for its strength, power, performance, reliability, comfort and beauty. Keeping in mind of the rugged (not-so-smooth) road terrain of Indonesia, this baby is a great friend for family adventure. Long trips have never felt so comfortable. I've never felt guilty in having this car. I'm always satisfied.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
