The only thing that has gone wrong with the car in the two years I have owned it, is every time I start it lately, there is a lot of blue smoke for about 5 seconds, and also a very bad tapping noise comes from the engine until it gets warm. Haven't got a clue what it could be. Any ideas anyone?
This car is very good. I have had it for nearly over two years now, and not a thing has gone wrong with it, apart from the smoke when starting and the tapping noise.
The comfort is good on long distance runs. The suspension irons out any imperfections on our rubbish Irish roads. If I was to have a complaint about the suspension, it's that it's too soft. This shows when you want to take a back road in it; there is way too much body roll to give you any confidence to go fast.
The power is only average. I drive in Waterford city every day, and it's very fast in town, but that changes when you go onto a main road/motorway; you can hardly overtake, and if you're like me, as in you don't do slow driving, this is not the car for you; it's just too underpowered.
Also, if you are a very keen driver, you won't like the sloppy steering or the soft suspension.
Overall a good car, but not for the sporting driver.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
