A few minor problems, but all in all quite happy with the car


Lost both headlamp covers, ABS light always on, electric window stopped working, alarm kept going off for no reason.

General Comments:

I found parts expensive, headlamp covers £104 each.

Alarm going off was solved by not using air fresheners and closing all vents in car.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
