I bought this car from the dealer a month ago. This is my second Optra.

The first one was a 1.6 LS and this is the 1.6 L. My previous car gave me 107000km of hassle free driving.

This one has a problem with a rattle in the door and also in the trunk? It's very economical and a pleasure for everyday driving, However, the hood (bonnet) seems to be loose and it looks like it would fly off if you drive 120km/h.

Has anyone else had this problem? I'm too scared to drive faster than 120km/h?

General Comments:

The dealership is great, and this is the 12th car I've bought from them. The car is good, apart from the latest hassles!

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
