Nice, but a bomb
Timing belt broke at 62,000 kilometers breaking valves. This means a major repair with about 2,000 euros cost. Interval for belt change is 120,000 km in the owners manual, but has been reduced to 60,000 km in the Nordic Countries by a letter to all owners.
Air-conditioning bleed at 55,000 km. Repair cost was 100 euros. Stopped working again at 58,000 km. Does not work anymore.
Front window cracked at 50,000 km. Replacement cost was 240 euros.
Hand brake needs too much of power to use. Many peopel pull it and think it holds, but...
Very nice car to drive. Even the small 1.6 litre motor is powerful enough.
One cannot see the mileage indicator directly from drivers seat, a minor mistake.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
