The ‘push to talk’ voice recognition button. It never understands what I say, and calls the wrong person half of the times I’ve tried using it.

I don't let my car interact with my smartphone. That is the source of most of the complaints for my model car - who needs the hassle. I am content with radio and CD.

My car locks after a certain amount of time. So it is annoying when I pick some one up I have to unlock the door for them.

I would love a skylight that opened but alas it is not to be. I have the moon roof but it is so far back I don't notice it. My passenger enjoys looking at the clouds. The exception to this is the extra headroom so I can "sit up in bed" when I am camping. And of course the view when camping is nice. If I hadn't scheduled an appointment Friday morning I could have driven to Cades Cove and watched the Meteor shower from the comfort of a warm bed.

I like the power hatch but feel silly doing the stork dance in a parking lot hoping it will open. If I am within range and a cat runs under my car the hatch will open - that is disconcerting.

The Bluetooth is for making hands-free phone calls. You just need to pair up your phone.

Bluetooth. The car salesman said he would set it up for me and I said don't bother. I do not make or take phone calls while I am driving. He looked at me like I had 3 heads. Yeah, I know.

You can also play music off the phone via bluetooth.

Sunroof adds weight in the worst possible place right at the top.
I don't know how to turn on my rear glass wiper either.

The rear seat video center and headphones. I never sit back there.

I still thought it was a pretty good feature, especially in a car marketed mainly to people who were using it to haul kids.

Maybe she'd been an acrobat in a circus? Back when I drove cars, not even the ashtray was useless to me, as I put a little pill bottle into it, as a vase for a flower. Once I took a business colleague out for a quick dinner on her evening meal break. When she got in my car and saw the nice rose I had, she started laughing and asked what kind of man was I, who would have a flower in his car? Needless to say, that was a relationship that ended before it had even started.
