A real sport car!


The seats have started to make funny noises.

The light of the computer on the dashboard does not switch on when I turn the lights on and the dealer actually could not fix it.

The brakes sensor is broken and it keeps indicating that there is something wrong with my brakes.

General Comments:

Fast car, reliable, not for people used to drive comfortably and smoothly in their family car.

The suspension is rigid (mine has air shock absorbers and sport suspension plus alloy wheels as extra so you feel every single bump of the road, but it gives extra stability).

Lots of power to unlash, 0-100km in less than 8 sec.!!!

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