General Comments:

Great car to own.

All problems have been original parts just worn out I guess.

Replaced full suspension kit front and back.

Replaced full brake system.

Replaced full exhaust system apart from a set of pacemaker headers coming soon.

Air conditioning unit got re-gassed and checked for leaks finding none, but only lasted for about 6 months.

Only problem now is there is a very bad fuel smell coming into the car and I can't work out what it is.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
