Repeated tappet cover gasket oil leaks.
Oil sensor switch leak. Idling irregular. Repeated attempts to convince dealer to fix idling and stalling when pulling off have fallen on deaf ears. Ignition leads replaced free of charge at 65000km. Didn't solve problem. Very poor after sales service in general. R/H front window winder seized. Driver seat locks in position at times. Brake fluid and cooling liquid not replaced as per service schedule.
Dealer unable or unwilling to adjust front wheel alignment. Problems right from the start. L/F tyre replaced at 10000km due uneven wear. Had to eventually have proper wheel alignment done myself at independent dealer.
Car purchased new with 3 year/100 000km maintenance plan (was included in purchase price). Haven't paid a cent for services as yet;(maybe the cause of poor servicing). Has been very reliable, and economical. Avg fuel consumption over life of car 7,5liter/100km.
Overall quite happy with the product, but disgusted with the service.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
