A very reliable car that was worth owning


Drive shaft boots needed replaced at 60,000 km.

4WD mechanism needed to be replace at 70,000 km.

Head liner cloth separation when car was nine years old.

General Comments:

4WD mechanism seems to be a problem. Other owners have told me that it is a weak point in the otherwise good car.

Seating is not very comfortable.

Visibility needed to be better, especially to the rear.

Not really an economical car for those who like to drive at a moderately high speed.

A very reliable car with good power and expressway performance.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
