Very good


Fuel pump dead at 47,000 KM due to bad fuel station conditions.

General Comments:

Very comfortable ride; the soft front suspension makes the ride more comfortable on bumpy roads.

Good off-road capability; a car that you can depend on.

However, the transmission needs to have more speeds (5 speed is not fuel friendly), and the turning signal lever is located in the wrong position. Also the rear door locking knob is located at the back, so that everyone misses it when trying to open a locked door.

Driver's power seat control button is located in a place that is hard to reach.

Overall, it's a very good car for a big family and long distance trips.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
