2011 Mazda 2: The Simplicity of Inexpensive
November 09, 2010
If there's one thing that makes cheap cars endearing, it's that they're cheap. Want another one? How about simplified center stacks. With no need to squeeze in stuff like navigation systems, seat heater buttons, telephone pads, massage functions, voice control activation switches and all the other stuff typically found in today average car, you're left with three-dial climate controls and a radio.
Granted, there's not much stuff to play with and I would probably want some of those features during day-to-day commuting, but once in awhile it's kind of nice to just look down and see simple controls and nothing else. Wonder how long it will take before I'm over them?
