Summary:

BAD

Faults:

Replacement parts are really, really expensive.

Never use the headlights wiper, but, when I did it, don't work properly and the motor is such expensive, almost 350 USDA.

Shock absorber very bad I changed 3 months ago in a authorized dealer and I heard a lot of noise.

General Comments:

Very bad, I recommend to all reader's of this that is a better option a BMW.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No

This is not a good review. If all you can find wrong with the car is a broken HEADLAMP wiper motor and shock absorber, then I think that's not bad going. What about other factors of the car. Is it good to drive? Comfortable? Tell us more - why is the more expensive BMW better?
