Not the best car, but acceptable


Wiper motor replaced at 7000kms (warranty). All the windows stop working intermittent; some days worked, some others not; bad motors, replaced the driver's window motor, and problem solved.

General Comments:

The original tires were really bad, I replaced with a new Pirelli tires, and it's like I just had a new car, better handling, better response, etc.

The car by itself is not quite powerful, but so far I'm still happy with the purchase.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
