Nice little car!


1 week after having it, the computer keep saying the gas lid was open. Dealer changed sensor at their expense.

Rear tailgate hard to lock in under -30 Celsius temperature.

In the 1st month, somebody forced the driver's lock at the supermarket parking, and couldn't open the car. The lock is a little bit twisted but keep working flawlessly.

You can see, I haven't had any real problem really with the car.

General Comments:

Awesome quality low and high beams.

Comfortable seat with lumbar support.

Cheap materials used in the interior (it's OK, work fine).

Sound system is actually not too bad (even the factory mp3 player).

Very silent in highway (no many noises inside).

Very economic in gas and powerful enough for its size.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
