Excellent design, appalling quality and reliability
Headlamp washer fell off.
Engine mounting unit failed.
Internal headlining kept falling down.
Exhaust gas recirculation valve clogged.
Undertray fell loose.
Seat recline mechanism broke.
Exhaust gas recirculation unit clogged completely (all pipework replaced)
Gearbox noise - needed new bearings.
Clutch slipped and needed replacement.
Bottom pulley on engine disintegrated.
The car is a superb design concept, practical and smart.
Performance from the 2.2 diesel is excellent with reasonable economy.
Many features make driving easy and comfortable (panoramic sunroof, auto wipers, folding mirrors, auto dipping internal mirror, cruise control etc)
Dreadfully unreliable - many failures, some of them serious and some requiring recovery to dealer. Off the road for a number of periods ranging from 3 - 10 days.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
