General Comments:

Great car, very reliable, comfortable, with a lot of space inside, luxurious but still cheap to service. It drives very well, it is well balanced, and also sporty kind of driving is it kind of driving. The basic 155 hp 2.0 engine is strong enough when rpm is higher than 4000. The engine sounds wonderful (5 cylinders). Ideal engine for this car is 2,4 , OK also 2.0 Turbo and 3.0 V6 is an extra class.

Now at 227000km the engine works perfectly and has no oil consumption. Still going strong.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
