I would add to the list ANY touchscreen or multi-function controller such as I-Drive, where you have to navigate through multiple menues to perfrom simple functions like working the climate control and audio system.
I'll keep my simple knobs and buttons, thank you. I like to be able to do things without taking my eyes off the road. Good luck doing anything by feel with a touchscreen.
Whoever wrote this article is extremely dumb and stupid. Most of the features actually help like the rain sensing wipers. The writer is simply upset because his broke **** cannot afford a luxury car with these features.
Clearly, this writer is bias. Considering the tone I'm surprised they didn't rail on the stupidity of power windows and door locks. Innovation and creative technology have gone hand in hand with the automobile since its earliest inception.
Where I live we get lots of rain, sprinkles, and mist. I find the moisture sensing wipers very useful. For one thing if you have them set correctly they automatically adjust wiper speed and frequency for vehicle speed and amount on moisture.
I also like the steerable headlights although that idea is nothing new – it was stolen from the 1948 Tucker.
