It's safe on the road, but you cannot depend on after 150,000 Km


During the summer time the window holders get broken. I have replaced them all many times on my expense. Every summer I get the same problem because the window holders are made of materials which cannot resist high temperatures, especially in the Arabian Gulf.

Another issue, the car engine has leaked at 100,000 Km, and I fixed it. And again the same problem at 140,000 Km. So, I have to monitor the quantity of oil from time to time to increase it.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
