Great design; build quality could be better


Few plastic parts broke down. other that that - perfect!

General Comments:

With 1.8l 125HP engine coupled with automatic transmission one can't expect a breathtaking performance.

Still - it's more that adequate, even fully loaded car is perfectly safe from the active safety angle.

A plastic lever that releases the second seats row (great feature - the entire row slides almost 30cm back and forth) broke down after few weeks.

Excessive wear of the brakes, more that I recall from any other car previously owned.

Fantastic seat arrangement variety - with third row folded, it proved to be a real van with huge capacity for different load.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
