Nightmare, a headache and a lemon all together


The fan blower failed at 20,000 kilometers.

The radiator blew at 25,000 kilometers.

The fan failed again at 30,000 kilometers.

The engine overheated almost every week.

The Air Conditioning was not cooling at 30,000 kilometers.

A second radiator was required at 35,000 kilometers.

Head Gasket blew at 40,000 kilometers.

Oil pressure problems.

General Comments:

It was a nightmare after the first 30,000 kilometers.

The car almost never worked from that point and it's a money pit.

It will let you down almost everytime.

Overheating problems every week.

Horrible service from dealer.

Stay away from this lemon if you want to avoid a major headache and ruin your life.

I can't sell it because nobody wants to buy it, because it got so many problems.

Most mechanics don't know how to fix it.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
