2004 Samsung SM5 SM525V 2.5 Gasoline from South Korea
My previous car was much better
Everything was OK until 48000KMs, but suddenly the car went out of order - had to change 20 parts, which cost me 1,000,000won = approx. 900US dollars.
The turn signals and the 4way flashers went dead suddenly in the evening, and I was almost killed while changing lanes when a truck nearly hit my car.
The seats are unusually sticky, even for leather seats. It is terrible in the hot and humid summers of Korea.
The front seats are nice and comfy, but the rear seats are so small for a midsize car.
The control panel looks like it's from the 1980s.
The turning radius is too big. I can't make a U-turn on a 6 lane road.
It consumes too much fuel. The label says 9.2km/L, but actually it consumes much more. I don't drive a lot, but I have to refuel 50,000won of fuel (1700won per liter) every 5 days in the summer.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
