Summary:

A piece of junk

Faults:

I believe the head had gone on this car, but I'm not sure.

It was missing.

Very hard to start in the morning.

Seats were coming apart at the seams.

One of the gas struts for the boot snapped (wagon model)

General Comments:

Horrible car to drive. had absolutely no power.

The gearbox was horrible. reverse was next to 1st (not so bad) and 5th was impossible to select.

Handled like a truck (no power steering)

It didn't look too bad in blue metallic with gold alloys.

I recommend all prospective buyers to look for a different car!

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
