Due to bad, bad braking, have hit a Sentra from behind.
Hoses and lines, spark plugs must be original, otherwise they interfere with the radio.
Headlamps last only 6 months.
Brake pads (GALFER) MUST be changed ever 3k Km to get a good handling and disks (Ferodo) every 12k Km.
Fast as hell. Standard (as mine) is fast but too high on suspensions, understeering and balancing too much.
Tyres are difficult to find, only Michelins (155/65/14!!). Rattles all over, and I just don't know what to do to stop it... my ICE at top volume I guess. With wider tyres (165/60/14), cornering improves a lot. Its very easy and cheap to tune... It's ideal for the city... But be careful driving fast, as it is very sensitive to wind... it freaks you sometimes with strange reactions.
Seats are too sporty, hard on the back, alloy wheels are also too fragile. And always remember that the brakes are BAD.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
