Very nice car with annoying quality flaws
Brakes have tendency to get stuck. Very common problem with this car apparently.
Driver side electrical window failed. Turned out to be a very common problem, so finding used parts was impossible and new replacement part is very expensive.
Trunk handle fell off. Turned out to be yet another standard problem with this car. The handle is held in place solely by a small o-ring. Just replace that and push the handle back in. If you've lost the handle, you probably won't be able to find a used part and will need to replace the entire lock.
ANOTHER very common problem with this car is that the TDC sensor gets dirty and makes the car difficult to start.
Very nice car, with good performance, well designed interior, lots of storage space - and some really annoying minor design flaws.
Handles decently despite too soft suspension.
Service is expensive and repairs generally difficult to do yourself. Finding used parts is difficult here in Sweden, especially as pretty much all owners will experience these same issues (handle, window, brakes, TDC sensor) and require the same spares.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
