Weak but reliable
Gas converter (for LPG system) broke down.
Overheats easily, once engine is turned off.
Not much has gone wrong with the car, but one thing that appears to be innate in its design, is the ease with which it gets too hot once engine is switched off.
I think its relative weakness, high torque even when doing a 100kph in 5th gear, engine heat, are all due to a comparatively small engine for a car its size. 2.6 and 4 cylinders is just not enough.
At a 100kph, you're doing 3000rpm. And on LPG, you can get only 300kms to a tank of 52L.
Just don't drive in hilly country, or pull anything too heavy, ie, don't have too much expectations about performance, and it will prove to be a reliable car that just keeps going.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
