Summary:

This car is a great cruising car

Faults:

It had tyre wear problems.

It also had an ignition problem.

My head gasket blew at 200,845 kilometers.

General Comments:

This car is big and is very heavy on the steering, and petrol, but it is very roomy, and comfortable, and when people see it the are intimidated by the size so they get out of your way. I Love it.

The handling is heavy, it also has a lot of under-steer.

The fuel consuption is average for a six cylinder car for its age.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
