Good design - poor build quality
Rear brake discs binding requiring new discs, callipers & pads.
Dreadful quality fitting of the dealer fit alarm, causing false alarms and other problems.
Seat belt pretensioner replaced.
Courtesy light switch fault.
Bad rattle from the back seat area (still unresolved).
Sales side of dealership was dreadful. Service side has been much better.
Handling is outstanding - embarassing the much hyped Ford Focus.
Group 7 insurance for this performance is hardly believable.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
