A glorified Ford Explorer..
Battery went flat, which may have caused the brake system to malfunction (and remained a problem even after the battery was replaced). It would suddenly lock one of the tires while driving at speed. Seemed to fix the problem by switching the ignition off while rolling down hill (in drive), and then cranking the ignition (this somehow may have reset the computer).
Front and back brake pads wear out very quickly, and rotors needed to be changed regularly.
All of a sudden, it started to rust in multiple areas, like pepper all over the bonnet, and large patches on the roof and near the hinges of the boot. The car will leak soon.
The interior plastic is brittle. One of the plastic seat levers broke off, and other plastic parts have cracked.
The driver's seat does not stay fixed in one position, and wobbles when driving.
Electronic windows malfunctioned, center console switches needed to be replaced.
Leak in the exhaust system made loads of noise.
The car burns oil.
The tie rod ends need to be replaced.
The air condition compressor is leaking.
The electronic keyless entry and alarm stopped working.
The fuel gauge does not work.
It looks the part, but don't be fooled, it has the quality of a typical American car. It's not worth the materials it's made from.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
