You have been warned!!
The air conditioning unit failed due to several leaks in and around the condenser.
The ventilation fan burnt out completely for no apparent reason.
A vibration (probably common in numerous cars) in the dashboard has started to occur.
The front offside wheel bearing? has been replaced which is almost double the price if you have ABS.
When the air con is in use, the power decrease is annoyingly noticeable. The car almost coughs and splutters.
The front windscreen mists up very quickly when raining and the only way to clear it, is to turn on the sceen heater, which automatically turns on the air con.
All faults which I have had rectified have been extremely expensive.
The ride is generally comfortable and acceleration is reasonable.
Seats are comfortable and there is plenty of passenger space as well as a good size boot.
For an "executive" model, it should have cruise control and an interior boot release, instead of a trip computer mainly full of useless information.
The boot lid is also quite heavy and cumbersome to lift.
Engine reliability (touch wood) has been excellent, however driven at the higher end,it uses an icredible amount of oil.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
