Summary:

Comfortable car with quality problems

Faults:

Rattling noises from the front suspension when driving on bumpy roads.

Massive engine vibrations between 2400 rpm and 2500 rpm.

Software bugs:

Engine Oil Level Indicator sometimes indicates that the oil level is low even though it isn't.

If I switch the windscreen wipers on and turn the ignition off, and then turn the ignition on again, the wipers don't work. I have to switch the wipers off and then on again to make them work.

General Comments:

Generally I'm quite pleased by this car, but I have my doubts regarding the quality of the car.

I mean, suspension rattle after only 1000 kms, that's a scandal.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know

My friend you wrote <<If I switch the windscreen wipers on and turn the ignition off, and then turn the ignition on again, the wipers don't work. I have to switch the wipers off and then on again to make them work. >>

This is the way to be done and it is normal, b/c the car does not know IF the wipers are frozen b/c of ice OR b/c the windshield is dry (not wet). It is done that way, to protect YOUR wipers!!! OTHERWISE, you should pay very often to change them... :-)
