Very comfortable for the long road


Gearbox problems.

Head gasket blown at 170000 km.

Front brake disks had to be skimmed twice.

Started using a lot of oil after 150000 km.

General Comments:

The most comfortable car I ever owned.

The seats were as comfortable as a good lounge chair.

Very quite and smooth engine.

Lots of boot space and lots of space for odds and ends.

The best car for a long road.

Very good fuel consumption.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
