The chassis is not particularly strong, and it seems a miracle that it actually holds together. Supposedly it comes with many customisable features but there seems to be a problem at the factory because many customers report ordering certain features but not receiving them, or receiving completely different add-ons. The unreliable alarm add-on is one particular bug which you will be lucky to avoid, as it goes off for no reason on a regular basis and can be quite difficult to shut down. It apparently only has two gears; first gear is slothful, and second gear is incredibly noisy, and seems to set off the windscreen spray mechanism with abandon.The clutch is wildly unpredictable; good luck changing gear when you actually want to. Overall fuel economy is high but I'm told this gets steadily worse over time, with longtime owners bemoaning its gas-guzzling nature and distinct lack of energy after about the 12 year mark, combined with ignition issues. Some owners of new models have reported that immediately after refuelling there appears to be a bit of a problem with the fuel line and the engine will stutter a bit, expelling petrol out of the tank in small quantities. In general the engine gives off huge amounts of exhaust and requires regular maintenance.
Despite all that it's a bit of a chick magnet; taking one of these for a cruise is likely to win you many an admiring glance.
