Summary:

Expensive for the comments reported above

Faults:

Early Rust on Window Strut.

Change of tires after 24,000 miles.

Side passenger door mechanism caused door to close immediately after opening.

General Comments:

The chrome wheels are virtually impossible to clean using proprietary products, and could only be adequately cleaning by the local dealer's valet sevice using what is believed to be a form of acid - not for the inexperienced.

The first set of tires were replaced after 24,000 miles which for our family was 15 months after purchase.

The handbrake needs a gorilla to pull it up - the car has rolled on a few occasions fortunately with no serious consequences.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

My PT Cruiser... the hand brake on that too is very poor.

It only seems to hold on the very last click, but even then it rolls forward slightly, the 'bench lift' pull you have to exert must surely be weakening the cable.

I often leave it in gear, just in case.
