Summary:

A nice sport family car

Faults:

Well a lot of things. Like the suspension, the engine. The water went into the oil.

I changed all the parts from the brakes.

I have problems with the doors. They open and close very hard. My girlfriend is furious by this problem.

General Comments:

The car is in very good shape. It has no rust on it. I hit the car in the front left headlight, and I don't have money to change it. It cost like 50euro a new one.

I have no handsteering assistance. At the parking I have problems. Especially I am using it in town. The consumption is 11 l/100km, in town and 8 l/100km outside towns (at 150km/h cruise speed).

The car is not very strong, I need more horsepower than the 88 that I have.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
