Instrument panel and center console illumination failed in December 2002.
Blows the fuse that covers the circuit for instrument lights each time it is replaced. Auto electrician will have to do the job as the fault will be hard to trace.
Lock on passenger front door doesn't always "pop up" when unlocking the car.
Radio Cassette / CD Changer only plays Cd's intermittently, the fault lies in the head unit housed in the center console which does not switch from Radio operation to CD. This, I have on good authority is a common fault.
The car looks great and the build quality is excellent.
The interior is very well finished and there are practically no rattles or annoying knocks from the trim.
The doors feel heavy and close with a rattle free "clunk".
A very quiet passenger cabin with comfortable seats and refined surroundings, but on the down side, the driver, if of average height will find getting in and out a little difficult.
Automatic gearbox is a little jerky at low speeds, but this can be forgiven at such a high mileage.
