Summary:

A lemon

Faults:

Immediately after the warranty ran out, the main crankshaft oil seal needed replacing and also the timing belt as a result.

The CV boots were replaced.

The a/c evaporator coil needs replacing.

Battery barely made 22,000 kms.

Some electrical problem made it impossible to start.

General Comments:

Nice little car with a comfortable ride, but mechanical reliability is pathetic.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
