Good looks, good handling and power when you need it
Have had to replace front headlight bulb at least 4 times, but apart from that I have no complaints about its reliability.
The in car tool kit needed for a wheel change proved pathetic, The wheel brace was simply not up to the job of loosening the wheel nuts and I had to call the RAC, much to my embarrassment.
Loved the car from the moment I set eyes on it. Good looking, gloss black with leather interior and all the extras to play with.
A great car to drive, and handles well in most situations. Then again, maybe I haven't been tested yet.
I love the sound of the engine when you apply the power, it really sounds like a sports car. whilst accepting it's no Aston Martin it has the ability to pull away from the lights when you want it to and leave the others standing.
As a driver I have no complaints over the front seating, although an electric passenger seat, alongside the drivers seat would add a nice extra. The rear seats are not really designed for long distance comfort, but are adequate.
I have had the car for 4 years and 40,000 miles and (touch wood) have had no complaints about its reliability or performance. The V6 power plant gives good acceleration and comfortable motorway cruising, to the extent where you have to keep an eye on the speedometer to prevent it running away from you.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
