Summary:

Head-turner

Faults:

Crashed twice. Absolutely no spare parts stock at the dealer. I waited 7 months to drive my car again.

General Comments:

The car is great, handles poorly, multi-link suspension is a big lie, do not trust this! Engine is very old technology, still two valves per cylinder. But finally, it's a Pininfarina design and that's enough :)

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No

Mine is chipped to 250 bhp, is 100% reliable. The multi link suspension is excellent - can you drive? Mine has a rattle on the front suspension that I can't cure though. Overall a gorgeous, comfortable and fast car.

I agree, the multi link suspension is great when its in good order. You really have to be a bad driver to be caught out.
