Never go for it


Transmission and steering rack gives so many problems.

General Comments:

I am very happy I sold this car. Lost almost 8 La ks from the deal. This is one of the worst second hand market cars in Sri lanka. The agent's service is so bad. Gave lots of problems in the AT transmission. Would not recommend anyone this car. Maybe this is a good car in the US, but not in Sri Lanka.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
