Good reliable family car!!!
Well nothing really. The car has its issues like, the transmission seems to make a random thud, usually when cruising a long, say 60 km/h, and you go to accelerate. Has been narrowed down to engine mounts.
Have noticed a lot of body flex when going into spoon drains etc.
Another major problem at the moment is the oil leaks; appears to be coming from the oil pump behind the timing cover.
Other than these problems, the car is super reliable and has never broken down!!
The reason I purchased this car was for a reliable highway car, as I travel 1,500 km's from Pt Lincoln to Adelaide regularly, and it has never missed a beat.
What appealed to me was it came with cruise control, which works a treat on the highway.
It has plenty of grunt for overtaking, and seems to be very fuel efficient on the highway, returning 650km's to a 70 litre tank.
Has a comfortable seating position, and is a very easy car to drive.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
