Deceptive for hauling

ReviewI had leased the R500 and took it home. Only then did we find out that the third row seats did not fold flat or out of the way. When folded, the seat becomes perpendicular to the back and sits 9 inches from the second row. If you are packing for a trip, you lose a tremendous amount of volumetric space. This was never shown and makes it an unrealistic car for trips to the beach. Poor design. Ended up taking the car back and getting SUV.
Best FeaturesSecond row of seats and rear controls.
Worst FeaturesFix third row of seats. Improve NAV workings and put CD changer in dash like everyone else.
