For the money you just can't beat it


No Faults so far.

General Comments:

A few things about this car you should know about this cheap reliable car. Purchase price less than 3 years ago £16.000,just acquired car for £4.600 now that's a bargain.

A few good and bad points to note.

Luxury leather Interior good quality finished with a rather nice wood trim.

Bomb proof v6 engine and gearbox so no problems with Reliability.

Full of gadgets to keep you happy like cruise control, traction control, remote boot release, remote central locking, full electric sunroof, too many to list.

Now for the bad bits.

Road noise from the tyres is far too much, giving the cabin a horrible droning noise.

Water drips in to the boot space when lid is opened after it has rained.

Door mirrors do not give clear indication of distance when reversing.

Increase in road tax to £190.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
