Beautiful car from all angles and an absolute pleasure to drive (when it works). The car has ample space for a family and it has a large boot. It drives very well, it has a good turning cirlce and can surprisingly (being a large sedan) can get you out of even the tiniest of spots. It has plenty of power with quick acceleration. The multitronic gearbox is a complete joke and often glitches. I have purchased it as a used vehicle but noticed that the gearbox has been "repaired" several times to no avail. If it was not for the multitronic gearbox I would say this car was about perfect and would not need to be replaced. The quality of finishes are also very good.
Multitronic gearbox (very very bad and very very costly to repair if anything goes wrong - also repairs on it cannot guarantee that it will drive the same or not break again).
On the CVT / Multitronic - advised not to speed away on first gear - need to be gentle with it.
