An absolute crapbox! Stay away!
As my first car, I wasn't expecting much, however no other car that my mates had was anywhere near as crap as this car was.
I literally had it on the road for about 3 months of the 10 months I have owned it.
From the start there was all sorts of problems, but none that really stood out to me, so that I would be like 'well lets sell it'. Minor oil leak, slight water coolant leak, loose rear alternator bearings etc.
But then, about 2 months later, when everything was fine, my car started shaking, and when I drove it home, it never started again.
Blown head gasket at 147 000 kms.
When the car actually drives, it's great, it goes hard and it feels nice to drive.
But it is the most unreliable car that can ever be bought.
PLEASE don't ever buy one of these cars.
My friend also bought the same car, but the 2.5L 6 cyl version; 2 months later, blown head gasket too.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
