Brakes front and rear changed 3 times.

So many faults so I can`t put them here.

The only thing that is great on this car is the exhaust.

300 000 km no problems.

General Comments:


Good handling high speed.

Rear end good.

Many repairs every year.

Never got through the MOT ever.

Bad heat in coupe.

Would not buy another again - never.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
