I do not have any negative comments to the car. If you service the car on a regular basis you will not have any problems. All repairs were due to normal exploitation reasons.

General Comments:

The car is not too extravagant. It is not really too fast however 190 km/h is not a problem. It is just a car that you treat as your shoes: you get in every morning and ride.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
