Performance car if the engine stays together
If I had known that there was going to be problems with the engine being such a lemon I would have purchased extended warranty. The engine is so poorly designed that the local wrecker can't keep rebuild ones in stock. 75000 km and the bearings for the crank rolled. Left me stranded on my holidays. Quoted a cost of $6500 to have a new one from the factory. It is only 15 000 km over warranty!
I love the car, but the cost of a new engine is more than 1/2 the price of the car. Buy the extended warranty.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
