Summary:

Compared to its type, one of the BEST

Faults:

The Ignition Plugs Cables was changed at 70,000 Km.

The Crank Shaft Sensor had a loose at 72,000 Km that the car does not start when hot. But it is working for more than a year only with tightening it electrical connection.

The Idle Speed Motor had a problem at 100,000. I cleaned it and re-installed it with instruction from a specialist for how to reset it.

General Comments:

Wonderful car that runs smoothly with the best comfort compared to the same types.

Very nice cabinet and comfortable seats.

Only one comfort problem that the 5th gear somewhat far that pains the right hand.

Smooth and strong suspension system that allows the car to still quiet on the bad streets.

Very low oil consumption with a little bit high spares prices, due to the technologies used.

Wide speed range for every gear. Which is very helpful.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
