After one year and a half, my Lambda part broke. That's the only thing that has gone wrong in two years of usage.

General Comments:

A very good car indeed. A very steady car, I really can't get it to loose its control. For someone taller than 1.80 m and heavier than 80 kg, this is a somewhat small car. The room isn't enough, especially in the back seats (where someone could easily touch the deck).

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
