Little things - electric aerial got stuck, wiper switch broke, remote control mirrors had to be moved manually.

General Comments:

Lounge on wheels, with a boost of V-8 power. Fast, and comfortable. Great for long trips, with its cruise control, and ice cold A/C. Great cooling/heating system. Started every time in freezing temperatures. Posi-traction made it handle surprisingly well in snow.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
