Absolutely a brilliant car, hopelessly under rated by the general motoring fraternity
The only real thing that gave trouble was a noisy turbo at 93000 km. I replaced this with a new one, and have had no trouble since.
The gearbox overheated while towing once, but after an oil cooler was fitted, have had no more trouble.
This would be the best vehicle I have ever owned. Comfortable, reliable, and a very good all round vehicle.
The car has been made to work, and most of the km driven have been towing kms pulling a 2 tonne caravan. The economy is not the best towing, but it is a small price to pay for the power and reliability of the vehicle. When not towing, the car is as economical as any other large heavy vehicle. It is not a speed machine, but will keep going all day long, quietly pulling any load.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
