Apart from normal wear and tear. Nothing.

General Comments:

This car looks like its from the future. The fairer sex absolutely love this car.

Has really good power especially when you get the revs up. I think its 100Kw. If you really want to put your foot down this thing is a rocket.

Drive like a racer and you will pay for it - at the pump. about 12-13c/L.

Suspension is too soft for this car and this effects its handling. You can feel too much body roll through corners.

Clutch is long and a little shaky in low revs. Is a little jerky when driving at speed.

Interior is set out nicely and is very comfortable with leather seats which are highly adjustable. Has a lot of functions and extras. Sunroof is very nice. Sound system is good for stock standard.

Lights are a little dim even with high beams on.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
