A crippling debt waiting to be purchased
Alternator blew at 204000k, and couldn't find a replacement for under $500 AU, so a Nissan example was fitted.
Parts of exhaust have rusted away.
Gears on auto box change erratically.
Engine needs tuning every 6 months.
Wheel bearings needed replacing at 200000, as well as a rear shock absorber.
Paint on bonnet has cracked extensively.
Tail light came out of its housing.
After owning this car for a mere one year, I have encountered more problems with it, than with any other that I have ever owned. It's incredible fuel consumption makes you consider purchase a v8 to conserve fuel, however this, and the expensive replacement part prices are somewhat counteracted by good overall reliability. I really enjoy driving this car when it is running properly, however this can be a mean feat on a students wage.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
