Brake discs all worn, oil leak from timing housing, gearbox clunk, gearbox leak, wheel bearing, aircon not very cold, window switches, aircon fan.
Very comfortable and good hard suspension controls car at high speed.
Engine only pulls well above 3500 rpm. 22 mpg. Suffers from early gearbox failure and worn cam chains that cost £600 + to replace. Engine has 190 + BHP but needs to be thrashed to realise it. They soon feel tired.
Compared to other cars for the money though, feels expensive and loads of goodies Better than 800/Carlton competitors, prefer a BMW 535 though.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
