Pros : Good Boot Space

Cons : Everything Else

My Parents foolishly bought this car against my advice, now even they regret it. Did you know that even rear speakers are not included in the price. No digital climate-control, horrible rattle in diesel variant, terrible vibrations like sitting in a Goods Carrier truck, bad AC, hideous Dashboard, cheap rip off entertainment system lacking even USB, forget about Bluetooth. The only good things about this car is the Boot Space which is larger than many other vehicles. Otherwise this car sucks. Hopefully my parents will listen to me next time they buy a car.

    Very good Kiren. Seems like you bought the base grade... as a parents gift to you, which explains why it is so bad. Fortunately EMR (Etios Motor Racing) has taken shape and is looking to open many Etios modification opportunites for customers, so that you can modify, upgrade and enjoy many perks that other makes like Hyundai or Renault do not have. You should be proud to own an unbreakable machine that is ready to be customized to your needs. I would start by changing the audio-video system, adding more speakers. An upgraded car battery may help for A/C. As Etios is an international model, it does come with a heating valve (how else can you increase the temperature on your A/C?). Do an Air con bypass (5 minute DIY) and enjoy a much colder A/C. As for horrible rattle - you sound like you haven't tried other vehicles in this segment ;) You should be thankful for this rattle
