All problems so far have been electronic.
One of the rear passenger doors would intermittently remain locked. The lock motor was changed.
The front near-side window from time to time fails to close and opens fully again repeatedly. This has not been rectified yet.
The radio will suddenly fade losing signals to all channels, leaving white noise.
There is a slight, but noticeable jerking felt from the engine or transmission between 40mph to 70mph. Attempts to remedy so far have included particulate filter regeneration, wheel balancing and downloads.
I have only experienced one electronic shutdown (lights out) when completing a three point turn at night! Luckily this was instant.
Despite the electronic niggles I would say that the car has been reliable within the mileage I have covered.
The car I have provides a superb ride, especially on the motorway, although I am disappointed how much it can be buffeted by cross winds.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
