A nice luxury car at an affordable price, but with serious quality problems (at least the lights)
There is massive water condensation in both headlights and both taillights. Up to half the lenses are covered and water droplets collect and run down on the lens. The car has been in the shop 3 times already. First, GM advised that this is "normal" and would clear with driving, but it got worse. Today, I got new taillights. One is fine, the other started to fog up again. The headlights still need to be replaced.
Engine performance is a bit low, but acceptable for my driving needs. Fuel consumption is much higher than the promised range of 7.9-11.9 liters/100km. I get about 14.
Despite the headlights, I really like the car. It is fully appointed with luxury options and very smooth to drive.
It handles very well even in the city and parking lot.
It is a great steal at the price.
There seem to be quality assurance problems. I have seen other Epicas with excessive condensation in the lights.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
