Rear seats are uncomfortable mainly for lesser leg space. There is no GPS in the car. (not sure if we were supposed to pay extra for it but its not there in our model). More than anything when we bought the car, the company people said we were supposed to change the oil every 15k km but after we ... Read Full Review
