A performance car for the younger driver
Starter motor seized at 160 000 km and unfortunately it was very difficult to find a replacement, and the one found was very expensive.
Fuel pump failed at 190 000 km.
Driver's side interior light switch failed at 190 000 km.
This car has a number of design flaws. For example, when the key is in the ignition, an internal alarm sounds as soon as a door is opened. This is VERY annoying.
The doors lock automatically when driving and do not unlock when the ignition is off; another irritating feature.
Fuel consumption is poor for a modern 2 litre car.
Internal air control is non-intuitive and difficult when fresh air is wanted.
However, the performance is smooth, responsive and powerful.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
