Good all round
The gearbox blew up at 115,000km from previous owners burnouts.
The radiators plastic top tanks are prone to crack.
The windows rattle in the frames, not sure why.
These are the only problems in 40,000km. It has been the most reliable car I have owned out of my Mazda 323 (4), Mazda 626, Nissan Skyline (2), Mitsubishi Libero GT.
The engine has good performance and economy. Not enough power to spin the wheels too much, but it can be done.
For space, the rear seats have poor headroom for even average height people.
The boot is large, with a removable parcel tray and fold down seats.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
