Having problems with noise from the front end. Was advised that my struts need replacing.

Dashboard warning lights constantly light up, with no fault found by my repairer.

General Comments:

Apart from the rattle every time I hit a bump, I love this car. Love the look, love the power, and of course the comments still to this day.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
