    Not much I would change, short of adding features and improving quality control... on second thought I'd reverse that order and put quality control first.

    Ignoring feature additions, it's the uber thin, clear-coat. There's just no excuse there.

    Auto-open for the sun roof, but no auto-close. So you have to sit there and hold it, to close it, and can only close it while the engine/ignition runs.

    Heated mirror option is not available without purchasing the $3,000 Ricky seats.

    I'll be surprised if the exhaust makes it five years without developing a rust hole. At just two years, lot of rust developing under the driver headlight rear-mount.

    I've improved the very poor lighting via LED swap-outs.

    This is very common among many vehicle designs. The rear wheel well is what chops window travel.

    Child safety locks?
    What version Sync? What size flash drive? exFAT or FAT32 file system? Try a different flash drive or reformat and reload existing one?

    I feel lucky that i've been able to mitigate nearly all paint damage with the clear film on the front-end and the occasional touch-up paint on the doors. The mudflaps nearly eliminated all rock chips on the sides.
    Someone clued me in that it's the Dual Mass Flywheel. https://www.fiestastforum.com/forum/...l=1#post315609
