Attractive and stylish estate


I had a problem with the fuel pump that caused the engine to stop on the most inconvenient moments. Had to be replaced. This was a common problem on all 1.9D 115bhp engines.

General Comments:

This is one of the most attractive estates on the market. Not a big and lumpy car, but a sleek design. Comfortable and stylish. And giving priority on the highways here as well.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
