none, it's really an excellent car

It is an excellent car that adapts to any circumstance, travel, vacations and work, it is very comfortable for me and my family

- Austin N

The design of the car is fabulous

Drives really smoothly. The car is very comfortable. A little bit too advanced in technology for me though.
