    gm and ford have never been good at buttons
    ford follows the contours of the dash styling which often results in strange clusters of unrelated buttons in odd spots
    gm vomits them wherever it's fiscally convenient which is occasionally soulfully futuristic
    chrysler separates them based on what they do which is accomplished through partsbin reuse of interior parts, demanding they be modular and generic in style to fit in any car.

        It's like one of those weird shaped Nokia phones they designed shittons of before getting BTFO'd by a glass slab.

        i like how they clearly designed this with the intent to use the same parts for both lhd and rhd vehicles, but they fricking put the phone buttons on the "american" side with the legends intended to be read from the left side even in europe so in a RHD car the fricking numbers and button labels are sideways.

        bravo ford

          Shit I didn't even notice that. The 'TA' button also does not match the 'slant' of the number buttons. The japs would never allow such shit laziness to pass

            >meanwhile, I never touch it because it's set to automatically be 70° at all times whether it's cold or warm
            Wait, what else do you exactly need to change while driving that isn't controlled by the steering wheel?

            I'd be find if they went back to old style air controls. Most of the summer it's set on Lo anyways because it's 100 outside. Car doesn't know what to do when the temp outside is nice and have to adjust the controls as you drive

            No they don't, moron. It's easy to develop muscle memory and go by feeling. Do you have to stare at your keyboard every time you type? If so, you may just be stupid and automakers shouldn't cater to you and drag shit down for the rest of us.

    I prefer toggle switches

      Those plastic toggles seem pretty good. I like and also hate the push-button "toggle" switches a lot of race cars use with RGB as an indicator, but they seem to work for that application so I can't fully hate them.

      I've been wondering recently why there aren't more metal toggles with an LED indicator in the stem like pic related. Shit that is simple on/off like lights, 3-position for blower motor, general 12v for the car, or momentary ones for starter. I think these would look really cool on restorations, older cars, and kit cars. However it would be pretty close to steampunk aesthetic which I hate.

      >These things feel like they fit with Nokia and Windows Vista Frutiger Aero, not 2014 with iPad out for its fourth year
      Some Japanese brands were hit pretty hard by weird design back then.
      I've no idea what Toyota was going for in some of its 2010s cars, except that the result mostly reminds me of a stack of random kitchen appliances.
      Nothing even lines up properly. Everything's blue as if blue LEDs were still a new thing. The center console is a random collection of touch-sensitive areas, physical switches in various styles---glossy, matte, rocking, press buttons, it's got it all. The clock looks like it was borrowed from a microwave oven. The dashboard assembly lines up with the door on the right side, but not the left. Kneeroom looks like you're going to break your legs if there's an accident.
