A good car, but get a later model with less bugs
Air conditioning unit failed after 1 year of ownership. I have had this repaired three seperate times and still does not work to this day.
Driver-side window runs much slower than the rest.
Transmission problems after 2nd year of ownership. When the car stops the transmission struggles into 1st gear. This causes the car to shake. Also it sometimes will not go into 4th gear.
The hydraulic hood does not work and requires you to hold it when inspecting the engine.
The front seat adjustments do not work correctly.
The windshield wipers do not work well at all and require much replacement.
The headlights are horrible and after years of use the plastic has melted and caused them to lighten even less.
The car is rather quick and handles well.
The ride overall is comfortable, but the shocks wear out quickly.
The cabin is nice and the seats and rather nice.
Overall a good car, but with many unnecessary problems.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
