Good car, maintenance can be painful and expensive
New air conditioning condensor at 80,000km, a result of a stone going through the old one.
New clutch and CV joints at 100,000km.
Brake pads front and back at 110,000km.
New bushes front and back at 130,000km.
Water pump died at 130,000km.
Overall it's been a good car. It's had it's fair share of wear and tear maintenance done on it over the 2 years that I have owned the car. It's done nearly 65,000km in two years so things are bound to go wrong on it in that time.
A lot of my friends comment on how new the car looks, it has kept it's age well and definitely does not look the 11 years old that it is.
Cars engine performance is very good, the transmission and suspension is not up to the same spec as the engine, although it's classified as a luxury car and not a sports car.
Whenever anything goes wrong it's always an expensive exercise as it's not a real mainstream car.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
