Bought the car with 145K Km 6 months ago.
Since then had the following repairs (this after checking the car to be ok at purchase):
1) Battery $350 CAD
2) Radiator Leak $1000 CAD
3) Engine Cam Shaft broken = dead engine. $7000 CAD to repair!!

+ costs of towing and time etc

This was by far the worst experience with any car. I read the reviews, everyone else that purchased it feels the same.

Stay away, unless you can purchase one like mine which is now fully repaired like new - but at an additional $9K cost over and beyond purchase price.

Very Good. Looks amazing which is why I bought it.


See my previous comments.
Looks great - but too many issues mechanically.
