General Comments:

I could not be more happy, no failures to count.

Noiseless running and soft handling, even on Mexican roads with poor surfaces.

Strong car, a Nissan crashed behind with serious damage, but our car had just the rear bumper lightly damaged. Insurance changed and painted, and then back to the street again.

This is a very good car; fast, comfortable and nice to drive. The design looks like a 90's car, with front bars, and the big tires seem bigger.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
