Excellent value for money, but spares a problem
Tyres continually going out of round.
Intermittent banging noise in car was diagnosed as a bent shaft. Took it in for repairs and was told there was a crack in the shaft and it broke in two. Unable to source a reconditioned drive shaft in Australia so I am having to buy a new one at twelve hundred dollars.
This fault had affected the differential centre which had to be replaced. Car off road for nine weeks as manufacturer was unable to source one even from Korea where they were manufactured.
I love the shape of the car and the way it handles, but spare parts for this car are obviously a problem.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
