Expensive for the comments reported above
Early Rust on Window Strut.
Change of tires after 24,000 miles.
Side passenger door mechanism caused door to close immediately after opening.
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
