A very disappointing car - vastly overrated
Suspension knocking - upper link replaced, this is a very common fault.
Engine is useless below 2500rpm with terrible jerkiness - a nightmare in traffic.
Build quality not very good with internal rattles, especially if you have the sun roof cover open, this rattles very badly so I haven't had the roof open since ownership.
The dealers are worse than useless.
The car goes like a pig until 3000rpm, then it's OK.
The power steering is far too light making the car feel unsafe and vague, especially in the wet when no warning is given as to when it might break away.
The ride is awful, the Mi16 handles better with a much better ride.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
