I have had this car for nearly a year, and other than a slightly worn battery, which I replaced, nothing has gone wrong at all.
The only minor problems I've had with car, was when I got the 75000 kilometre service with Ford, they overadjusted the handbrake cable, causing the rear brake to drag (after a couple of days) and they also left the air intake fittings loose and leaking, which I then had to take the car back and leave with them again to fix properly, which was a big hassle for getting to work and back.
The car looks very good, and is a very nice blue pearl without a scratch. Also the interior is immaculate, and I think looks much better than most of the more expensive Japanese cars.
I also fitted better iridium plugs, typhoon airbox snorkels with hi flow air filter, and the car goes great and is very easy to drive, and a truly excellent car for the money.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
