This car has proved unsafe
A week after purchase in December 2005 the car lost power whilst driving on the M5 in the outside lane and I was luckily able to get into the inside lane on reduced power. Could have been a dangerous manoeuver had I been beside a group of lorries. Had to be towed to my destination. Fault: recalibration of diesel jets.
On 19 April 2007 engine completely cut out on a busy single carriage road and I was fortunate that vehicle behind was able to stop. Had to be towed to garage. Fault: camshaft sensor and wire assembly.
I cannot risk keeping this car in case such incidents occur again resulting in a serious accident. I have owned many cars in over 40 years of driving and none have ever had an engine that has just cut out without any warning.
On the plus side the car is comfortable to drive, handles well and has plenty of power.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
