Summary:

A good comfortable mini van, to a good price

Faults:

The clutch plates broke after first year.

The exhaust broke at 160,000Km.

The engine water cooler broke at 200,000.

General Comments:

All-though I had a few problems I still think it's a great car.

It is very comfortable to travel long distances in.

The gasoline consumption is high.

There is not enough power in the 2.4L motor, It should have a 6 cylinder option.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
