Summary:

Top notch, and different

Faults:

The driver's side electric window motor failed on me. I ordered a new motor from a UK based American car parts supplier. It took ten days to arrive.

Nothing else.

General Comments:

When I sold the car the transmission was beginning to get a bit jerky, I suspect it was on its way out.

Performance wise, the 6000 was fine, but not as quick as I expected it to be.

Handling was superb.

Plenty of space for five adults, reasonable head and leg room.

Ultra reliable.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
