Car started leaking oil.
Idle was rough.
Problems with the indicator lights coming on during high speed driving.
Car was running hot.
Had difficulty getting parts.
Was losing boost pressure, had to get the turbo redone at 17,000 miles.
Had to replace the fuel lines, the car was smelling of fuel in the cabin.
Interior trim started fading, driver's seat bolster was getting worn down, dash was taking a beating.
For the first 5,000 miles the car ran great.
At about 12,000 miles I started having problems one after the other. Every time I took it out it wouldn't be too long before I had something that needed repairing.
At 130+ mph you can tell it's not solid, lots of rattles.
I was disappointed, I looked far and wide for a Lotus S4S with the lowest miles I could find, I figured I would get at least 20,000 miles out of the car before I was going to get major problems.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
