Summary:

Nice, comfortable, spacey, driving as in a bus, but to expensive and too many unexpected repairs

Faults:

Control-er of the automatic transmission failed.

Dashboard speedometer/RPM unit failed.

Front-window cracks to easy.

Inner rust developed between the lower chassis front/back welding.

Roof seals dried out causing leaks.

Engine pre-heater failed.

Pneumatic pump for pneumatic springs failed.

ABS box failed.

Front-plate inner grill-plate rusty.

Leather looks plasticized after 7 years.

Inner roof lining comes down.

General Comments:

Looks like they beefed up the car from a cargo version to fast. All additional items required for this beef up failed.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
