Summary:

Good, but letdown by the minor shuddering glitch

Faults:

It will shudder slightly when it moves from a standstill. I also noticed the rpm will drop from 900 to 600 when I released the brakes to move off at traffic lights. I thought this glitch was fixed in the 2001 models? I think this is more due to the electronics than mechanical. Somehow the engine/CVT clutch received a faulty signal. However no workshop here seem able to fix it. :(

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
