A lot of bang for buck!
The sunroof leaks only very slightly in heavy rain, or when a pressure hose is used to wash vehicle.
A slight shudder and squeaky noise appears sometimes when turning the wheel while parking - possibly something to do with the power steering or the steering rack, but I will raise this with the dealer at next service.
Otherwise, nothing has gone wrong! It's a very reliable vehicle!
Paid $16,000 for the vehicle brand new, and this included every option available.
There are a list of features that I was very surprised to find on an inexpensive car like this one. These include factory iPod integration with six speaker sound system, heated mirrors - very handy in the rain, electronic glass sunroof, ABS brakes, 1.6 litre petrol engine, steering wheel controls for audio system, chrome finishes inside - without being tacky.
Overall, this vehicle offers extremely good value for money. It's no sports car, but the handling is still good around town, as is the speed and economy.
Fuel economy: $50 to fill tank, and if running the air con on every journey, you will get about 450km before the light comes on!
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
