Reliable family friend. Good value spec
Lighter seats stain terribly. Even clean water stains them. Choose black if you can.
Door hinge stops squeaks and squeaks more if you oil them.
Quite a bit of road noise from rear on non smooth surfaces.
Good acceleration / performance, but lurches a bit on bends.
Fits family in well.
We are very pleased except for the interior fabric and squeaky doors. This is a great car for the money, but I was seriously disappointed just after purchase to find out that it actually has a Renault engine. Buying Japanese should mean buying Japanese not French Scenic under the bonnet.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
