Rear passenger door lock became inoperative in the dead-locked position.

One front air vent would not open.

General Comments:

Excellent long distance cruiser. Quiet, supremely comfortable and reasonably economical for such a large car. Huge amount of storage space in boot. Faults fixed under warranty OK.

I would recommend this car to anyone. BMW owners who have ridden in it have been annoyed at their own purchasing decisions! Buy one.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
