Summary:

Great Brazilian Car!

Faults:

The reverse lights never work. Dealer fixed under warranty.

At 36.000km started leaking engine coolant. Dealer fixed too.

General Comments:

This is a great car. In handles very well and smokes every other car in it's category.

It's also very economical. An average of 500km per tank.

It's very roomy in the interior, the best in it's category too.

This is an totally reliable car, never needed anything, but it's regular maintenance.

I added a set of 15 inches rims with low profile tires. Got better taking tight corners.

Its brakes are powerful. Althought the anti-lock brakes were not offered in my country it's hard to lock the rear wheels.

The engine it's great. In third gear, traveling at less than 40km/h in a hill it maintains and recovers speed very easy.

I would recommend this car to anyone is great.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
