1) The cruise control is located on a weird, stubby lever positioned on the lower right side, and that is visible between the rim of the steering wheel and the steering column.


I hate CC, never looked for it yet. I have found it in very awkward positions on newer cars though.

2) It's impossible to operate any levers (lights, windshield wipers, cruise control) without taking your eyes off the road.

5) Side mirrors aren't large enough.


Unless it's a truck, they never are. Have you ever sat in a new Challenger? 180 degree blindspots, yuck.

It's a rental, at least you're not the one paying to keep it running in 5 years.
