Value for money 1.6L sedan
Faulty fuel gauge (inconsistent readings), took dealer 2 months to fix.
Steering alignment off upon delivery.
Has a comfortable & roomy cabin.
Spacious boot/trunk (3 golf bags no problem!)
Feels rock solid, I love the build quality.
Stable at 185km/h, maintains the speed well on highways.
Has nice little thoughtful extra touches, that the other cars in this category lack (like felt lining in the storage spaces, sound insulation under the bonnet/hood, carpet even on the top underside of the boot/trunk lid, remote activated boot/trunk lid built into the key fob, etc.)
Pity it only has 1 SRS airbag (driver's).
1.6l not as responsive as I had hoped. May be due to the weight (approx. 1200kg)
Needs bigger wheels, to enhance the profile looks. Currently running 15" 195/55 (stock).
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
