Critical functions such as power windows, central locking, instrument lights and rear lights will be inoperative if battery is replaced or jump started.
Always have the windows up. Any issues with the battery will mean a very expensive fix to have the computer 'reset', so the windows will work again.
Fuel gauge reads 1/4 full if the car is driven for more than 20 minutes. Always drive on a full tank.
Factory spark plug leads are useless.
Oil warning light only operates after the engine seizes. It will not illuminate if there is any pressure, no matter how minute, in the system. Check oil before using the vehicle.
Plastic parts snap off easily.
Suspension not very robust.
Not recommended for towing trailers.
Comfortable seating arrangement.
Not popular with mechanics.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
