European dynamics, Korean trim quality
Coating on interior trim deteriorating
Clunking noise in front end
Overall not a bad car. The motor is a gem with excellent economy and performance. handling and chassis dynamics are excellent
I have some reservations regarding the quality of the interior trim with the coating on the door driver's side door handle, the release button on the roof mounted sunglasses holder and around the steering wheel mounted audio controls rapidly deteriorating. Not what you would expect from a relatively new low km car. The vehicle is under warranty so it will be interesting to see what GM will say. I was considering a BMW at the time and now ruing the fact that I didn't go for it.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
