Front brake disc's were worn out at 105.000 km.
Ventilation pipework for the motor base-chamber was plugged and was frozen during the cold period in December 2002 (-25C). There is an electrical heat resistor to prevent plugging, but the resistor was broken. This resulted in overpressure in base-chamber and motor oil is was bleaching all over the motor. I was lucky, that the motor did not suffer any bearing damages or other damages. Repair took the dealer two weeks because they had 30 similar cases that Monday morning! Cost: 210 EUR!
Automatic clime control works "strangely" occasionally, not speeding-up the fan as you would like it to do. Manually it works normally though!
Air bag lites are activated occasionally.
The automatic gear box changes from gear 1 to gear 2 very clumsily when the motor is cold (+5C and below). With warm motor no problem!
Very comfortable car. Nice to drive. The front seats could be more comfortable though, especially for long persons (190 cm). The boot is very spacious.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
