It's an amazing car when it's going, one of the best I've driven
Radiator, It leaked and kept leaking so eventually needed replacing and has been fine since.
All four coils crapped out and had to be replaced.
The muffler and exhaust system deteriorated at 160,000km.
Engine mounts wore out.
Head gasket blew.
Engine light comes on if cruising over 110kph.
Door locks have worn out, has to be unlocked from passenger side.
A/C label on button came off when I pressed it one day : (
This car has exceptional handling! Beat a holden club sport on the race track. New 16 inch rims with low profiles helped a lot.
Its quite a quick car too for a 2 litre non turbo. It has good over taking power.
It can be economical depending how you drive it. (500km per tank)
Comfortable leather interior very stylish. It has a brilliant factory stereo system!
However the only let down are the mechanical troubles it's had. Thousands of dollars put into repairs and also the little things that go wrong with this car.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
