Great value for money



Rear tires were cupped (Good Year HP), resulting in some additional tire noise.

General Comments:

One of the best cars I have ever owned. No problems at all, real value for money.

This was the basic 4WD model, so no fancy options, but everything worked as designed.

No problem to get it through the MOT.

Because of short travel distances (in city) the mileage was bad, 6-7 kilometers to the liter. That was the reason we traded it in.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
