I found I hated heated seats and steering wheels, the EVIC display was annoying, and the climate control would not even allow me to simply open the vents to let outside air in.
Now I know that I want less tech in cars. Maybe I'm a control freak .. I dunno.
+1 maybe its because I am getting old but I like my car simple, preface this by saying I am a senoir unix admin I deal with tech for a living, there is nothing better than something thats does what its suppose to do with as little effort as possible. We usually call it KISS: keep it simple stupid
Whenever you complicate a simple task that makes me go bat**** crazy, I fell in love with the subie because it was just so stupidly simple and easy the interior is everything I need minus a few odds and ends which I have already added. mechanically its also pretty stupidly simple as well. I don't need 50billion computers yacking at me about nonsense, I want a car I can step on, hear the engine, feel the road, enjoy wind blowing over it and all the other ridiculous things that make me enjoy driving. I LOVE road trips, I have never used my car to commute to work all the mileage I have on all the cars I have owned have been driving for hours on the open road with the radio cranked best is spring to early summer windows down cool breeze some johnny cash or whatever blasting over the speakers and driving down some picturesque mountain roads. Maybe that makes me a dreamer but who cares. K end rant
