Summary:

Good little stylish car for the money paid

Faults:

Front right wheel bent when hit a pothole around ~20,000, easy fixed with a couple of beats ;) and a balance after that.

Both headlamps at ~30,000 kms.

Front brake pads at ~36,000 kms.

General Comments:

I have owned it since new, 8 months later it has ~36,500 km on the odometer. I haven't had any big issues with the car, other than a bent wheel, the headlamps and the front brake pads.

I have made two trips of approx. ~4000 km each trip, with 4 people in it (2 adults, 1 teenager and a toddler). It's not comfortable at all, but gets the job done (very well indeed) I divided each one way trip in a two day journey of approx. 12 hour drive each.

I get around 500km of each full tank of gasoline, that is what I call economy ;) given that it's practically my weekly commute to work.

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