Faults:

After driving it away from dealer, all lamps switched off due to electrical problem (the dealer didn't want to repair it for free).

After few months there's a little knocking noise under the hood: a piston broke.

Had to take out the engine and still without it.

Handling and speed not so great as its torque, but the only good reason I raccomend this diesel is its great fuel average.

I suggest to put in a new edelbrock and after that you will go anywhere.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
