The Owner's Manual is not user
friendly. It took two Tech reps two
hours to program the features, so how
does GM expect the buyer to utilize the
gibberish that passes for a manual.
Just to use the CD, reading the manual
is useless -you have to sit in the car
and press buttons at random to get this
feature going. Where is the user guides
(photos, VHS) that came with the old
STS? When that's all done, the glove
compartment is too small to hold any-
thing more than a pair of gloves and
all the other compartments are too
skimpy to be of any use. The time
display (clock) is too small unless you
like squinting to read the numerals.
Apart from poor GM design on important
The heated steering wheel is nice as is
the heated seats (available on the old
Seville). Tilting outside mirrors on
both sides is convenient once you learn
how they're activated (not
automatically, as on the old Seville)
by pointing the little toggle on the
mirror control panel. The STS V8,zoom
The Owner's Manual needs a rewrite and
should be accompanied by a pictorial,
step-by-step programming guide. Throw
in a DVD to replace the old VHS for
a relaxing overview of the features.
That way, I wouldn't have to tear out
my hair in frustration. GM should
provide a hook for the key!
