Engine: 2.5 Petrol, 190,000 km., Manual, Station Wagon 5dr,
Owning 5 years, Was buying as "Used" - Will buy again Author: Peter Etherington, Howick, Kwazulu-Natal
This has got to be one of the most under rated cars on the South African market. Their motto "Whatacar" is not for nothing.
Value for money
Positive: Comfortable (had a back op 3yrs ago) and can happily drive all day No problem. Road holding second to none. Good tow vehicle as it has the most brilliant hill assist system to pull off on a hill. As you let the clutch out it releases the brakes. BRILLIANT ALL CARS SHOULD HAVE THIS!!!!!
Negative: Parts and servicing is expensive
Not the lighest on fuel average 10L/100km open road and 12L/100km normal daily driving.
Advice for a Buyer: ENJOY YOUR NEW PURCHASE just as I have done THERE WILL BE NO REGRETS if you are buying used as the ther "problem"is they dont seem to hold their value very well. Good news for us that can only afford used vehicles as we can get some good deals. Once you have tried one and decided to buy try and keep the secret as I am looking to get my second one this year.
