Want to know everything there is to know about this car?
Lots of car for the money. Where can you get a car like this for 6K with airbags, abs, side impact, alloys etc.
Cheap tyres£218x5, insurance £248 fc, unfortunately no diesel version.
On the road
Very smooth, quick acceleration for a 4X4, you can make it drift in 2wd, and very sure footed in 4wd. Much better than a Rav4 or a Suzuki. one of the best 4X4's off road in its class.
Drives like a car, a bit of roll (but it is a4x4), uses less petrol than my del-sol, but slightly more than my 2.0 accord.
Living with it
So far no problems at all in any weather. excellent vehicle.
It does not look very pretty without bull bars and side steps, it looks like most other foreign 4x4s.
Nothing wrong with it, but it lacks refinement. seats 5 plus a rottweiller easily.
Security and Service
I dont know about the locks, but the immobiliser is great, it has a transponder key like the Subaru wrx.
3 years body work, and 1 years mechanical warranty when i bought it, service (twice) all free!!!! they are not happy with the front brake pads (checked out independantly as perfect) so they will replace them free at my convenience!!!!
Problems and Ownership
Toe in wrong, so wore out front tyre.
Did you buy the car new?
Would you buy the same model again?
Did you buy from the same manufacturer again?
