Summary:

Expensive family-hauler from GM

Faults:

Tie rods, fuse box, filler cap, battery.

General Comments:

Roomy and practical.

Good performance from the 1.9 150 HP turbo diesel engine.

Very comfortable.

Too expensive to run.

Electrical components fail, tail lights brittle, door bottoms starting to rust.

Poor warranty and bad dealer service.

Parts, taxes and insurance are immensely expensive, and the resale value is next to nothing.

Summary:

You get what you pay for

Faults:

My dashboard is coming apart, especially at the top of the OBC screen and air vents.

My steering wheel is offset from the day I got the car.

The carpets that are glued on to the 3rd row of seats, have fallen off, due to the glue not holding it in place.

Lots of rattles from the dash and boot area.

General Comments:

It has a lot of space, very versatile with its clever seating system, and has average performance for an MPV.

Needs a tighter suspension.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
