Love the quality and the image
Gearbox mounting worn, needed replacing at 100K. Front centre armrest plastic clip (holds armrest cover closed when armrest is raised) broke, as did armrest hinge. Some clonking from OSF suspension, though it has done 130K so this is just wear.
Excellent quality and equipment, I bought the car in Jan 06 with 98,000 miles and it now has 130,000 on the clock (end Oct 06). Very quiet, does low to mid 30s per gallon. Engine is a bit sluggish, but not too bad. Handling a bit wallowy on std 16" alloys, but upgrade to 18" rims has sharpened up the steering no end. Seats are immensely comfortable, esp. with optional heated seats.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
