2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8: Best Idea

August 08, 2012

Hands down, best idea on the market for audio controls. Hyperbole? Of course. But any time I drive a recent Chrysler, I wonder why more manufacturers don't copy this design and place rocker switches on the backside of the steering wheel. This doesn't force you to move your thumbs or otherwise change your fulcrum on the wheel. You remain in total control of the interface. I dare say it's even safer. NHTSA should create a rating for it.

Important stuff.
