Don't buy it or prepare for lots of costly repairs
I have gone through 3 head gaskets and a set of heads in 3 years.
Replaced timing chain at 200,000 Kms and in the same winter replaced the water pump, heater core and two thermostats. The car is still cold.
At 210,000 km required a new in tank fuel pump. Cheap parts but the fuel tank needed to be removed to replace part.
Struts finally went about 250,000 kms.
Has a major electrical short in it. Blows fuses weekly and the radio and interior lights no longer work. The rear defroster is also included in the short.
The fan on the heater/air conditioner does not shut off, has been like that since I bought the car 4 yrs ago.
Back seat is quite small, but fine for younger/ smaller family members.
No power, 0-60 takes forever and passing is scary.
Handles well even at higher speeds.
Loves the open highways.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
