Value, performance and associated status for the relatively low cost of the vehicle
Changed timing belt and tensioner as a safety precaution when the car was bought and had it tuned.
The steering tie rods have began knocking and will be changed soon.
The transmission's rear seal is looking a bit moist and will be changed before any catastrophic failure.
The car has a lot of space in the cabin as well as the boot.
Seat fabric is plush and very comfortable with varying adjustments to suit each driver and front passenger.
Silky smooth and aggressive power delivery while still maintaining its "civility" (and this is only the 2.0L engine).
The larger engine models were not imported into this country, but the car is loaded with features as standard, which would be considered options on other brands.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
