Summary:

Expensive family-hauler from GM

Faults:

Tie rods, fuse box, filler cap, battery.

General Comments:

Roomy and practical.

Good performance from the 1.9 150 HP turbo diesel engine.

Very comfortable.

Too expensive to run.

Electrical components fail, tail lights brittle, door bottoms starting to rust.

Poor warranty and bad dealer service.

Parts, taxes and insurance are immensely expensive, and the resale value is next to nothing.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
