Average brake pad life: 5,000 km. Brakes pads disintegrated many times without warning from wear indicators or the car's warning lights.
Factory battery lasted 25 months.
Power steering failure at 7,500 km, replaced under warranty.
Undetected coolant leak, dealer said was normal.
Right rear door lock chatter, dealer said it was fixed, but did nothing.
Very expensive dealer service, some things were never done.
Michelin tires worn at 52,500 km.
Very good ride, very quiet even at 120 km/h.
Seats had poor lateral support.
Transmission was noisy, seemed to be working overtime.
Terrible brakes, they caught fire twice within a three day period.
Lots and lots of room.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
