One of the rear doors locked up after I opened it, forcing me to take it to the dealers for repairs the next day. It cost $240, but would have been a hell of a lot more if it had locked closed.
I have noticed one of my headlights on the dim setting has gone out.
The steering wheel tends to squeak at certain times.
The brakes squeak a little, but it's probably due to my brake pads needing replacement.
An LED has gone out in my climate control display.
The air con doesn't seem to work/turn on (the display comes up, fan works, but the air con doesn't seem to kick in, most likely requiring a re-gas/repair)
Poorly designed boot with the water leaking into the boot itself when opened.
Midnight blue in colour, bought early this year in immaculate condition with 115,000k on the clock with full service history for $12500 privately.
Other than the irritating little problems mentioned, nothing truly major has gone wrong (touch-wood). As long as I take care of this car like the previous owner, it should be fine.
Average fuel consumption is usually around the 12.5L/100km, although if driven hard this can quickly rise to around 14L. Usually 470km's for 75L of standard unleaded fuel (16L/100km). This number drops to around 400km when BP Ultimate 98 octane is used, which was a shock to me, ending at around 19L/100km normal driving!.
It's the small features that I love about the car. Such as the headlight-interior lights auto shutoff feature, making it almost impossible to leave them on, thus preventing any dead battery situations.
Green floor LEDs, which not only look good, but allow for easy setup when entering the vehicle.
Loads of space making for very comfortable driving even with a 5 person load.
Bucket style seats providing great comfort.
Power for the windows even when the engine is off, a feature I found isn't even common in cars above the $18000 mark.
I absolutely love this car and hope to have it for many years to come. This car is the smoothest, most comfortable and best looking car I could find for under $16000, and I'm not at all disappointed with my purchase.
That is until I see the price of my 130k service ;)
Next it's onto a Calais!
