A superb Vehicle in every way


Heater fan fails on full power.

Front near-side headlamp glass fell off, (still not found it!).

Remote stereo controls on the steering wheel play up a little from time to time.

General Comments:

Outstanding performance for its size. More than capable of leaving boy racers standing at the lights.

Very reliable and comfortable.

Having a sliding door on each side makes loading and unloading easier.

Very spacious especially if you remove the middle seat.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
