You get what you pay for
Rattling in the dashboard area.
Clunk noise heard coming from the rear drum brake area when you let off the brakes.
The interior of this car is very attractive, but I found the seats lacked lumbar support and my back starts to hurt at around 200 miles of driving. A rattling noise coming from the dashboard area (near the clock and avg fuel comsumption meter) but goes away after interior cabin is warm.
Performance of this vehicle is average. I have a 5 speed manual transmission and you have to get your rpm's up to get moving. The transmission would be better if it shifted smoother. The ride is smooth on smooth roads and a bit rough on rough roads and sounds like you can hear every pebble you roll over.
Overall this car is average, but a bit discouraging because of the dashboard noise and the brake noise from a brand new car. Maybe I might have to use 100,000 mile warranty it comes with. But I hope not to.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
