Summary:

Underestimated

Faults:

Everything electric, except engine-related functions, went crazy once, probably due to earth fault. Cured itself by and by over a month. Most annoying. Quite funny, though.

Several smaller faults, some of the causing stand still, but surprisingly cheap to remedy.

Rear brakes needs frequent greasing.

General Comments:

Mechanically reliable. Nice engine.

Surprisingly comfortable suspension (with Pirelli tyres), not so bumpy as comparable German cars.

Roomy, higher than most other cars.

I like the digital meter.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
