When playing a USB or My Music, it does not remember shuffle or any other last setting. 3. No glove box lock. 4. No independent shades for the front and...

    They changed the font and illumination from red to white in the cluster. And they've added the trim cover/garnish to the trunk arms. I do not like the new alloy wheels or the non LED taillamps.
