    Auto design trends change all the time. Some trends are awesome: heated seats, rearview cameras, and Bluetooth. But on the other hand, some trends are real, real bad … like the use of bigger and bigger iPad like screens getting stuck to the dashboard, cough cough Tesla. Join Nolan as he covers some of the worst trends, and which manufacturers are the worst offenders. No one is safe on this one, we take a look at Toyota, Nissan, Subaru, Honda, Porsche, BMW, Tesla, and just about everyone in the auto industry!

                  I agree with all of these. The CHR is a Toyota though. One thing I wouldn’t mind seeing is better stock sound systems, especially now that so many companies are molding the head unit into the dash these days. With our modern technology, all the advantages we have made for new cars, and certainly when you look at how expensive cars are getting do sound systems still have to sound like crap? Do stock speakers still have to have a “paper feel” to them? Also plastic headlights that fog up need to go, as well as any feature that just helps bad drivers be bad drivers.

                    What annoys me of modern cars?

                    1.- massive sized front grilles
                    2.- Excess of computers and "smart" technologies
                    3.- Honda CHR
                    4.- TESLA CYBERTRUCK!!!!!!!!!!!

                                                5:25 if something is heavy enough to make the passenger seat belt chime go off then its heavy enough to make the car think there is a person there and it will arm the airbag. No reason to have the passengers' side airbags go off if no one is there... most likely it will be more dangerous especially if it turns into flying debris aka shrapnel

                                                            Small impractical SUVs. X6, X5 and X3s would have been fine but no, BMW think it is cool to have an X4, X2 and WTF is an X1? If one wants to own an X1 or X2 why not just get a 4 series? After all these small SUVS hiding under the classification as "crossover" are nothing more than a taller sedan. You can have the same effect by lifting your suspension.

It's a virtual button that will physically move a real button. So you can put your dick beaters on a screen with lots of germs, and likely plenty of santorum in the case of the guy in the video, instead of just using your dick fingers to push the button yourself. It's an option that costs $7600. They have to put a special motor in to move the button at a signal from the computer. They also have push buttons that will mechanically depress when you click on the option on the touchscreen. So say you have a foglight button that is a normal push button. If you don't want to have to do all of the work required to push the button yourself you can push it's virtual twin on the screen and they have a mechanism that will depress the button you didn't push yourself. They even have a button that pushes a button that pushes a button. It is a $12,000 option. Most liberals and gays go for it because they are idiots.
