Minor faults not enough to detract from superb handling, comfort, performance and good build quality
Fuel rail needed replacing. Identified by dealer when servicing.
Spare (non push button) key wouldn't activate/deactivate alarm, due to faulty alarm system from day one.
Boot door wouldn't close on two separate occasions. First time fixed by RAC, second time required new boot latch.
For all of it's faults (as listed), it redeems itself, in terms of comfort, handling and performance as being the best car I have ever driven and (being a company car driver), it's had a lot of competition with rental cars etc...
...Just within the past year I've had BMW 3 series, Mercedes, Toyota Avensis & Corolla, Renault Laguna & Scenic, Mazda 6, VW Bora, Peugeot 306, Vauxhall Vectras, Ford Focuses and the Mitsubishi Carisma and it's miles better then any of them.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
