2013 Scion FR-S: Not Getting Used To This Thing

October 23, 2012


And by "thing" I mean the stupid head unit. The car itself is a joy. Seriously. Every time I drive it I like it more and more. It's not just that it does everything well, it's that it does everything exactly as you expect it. No surprises. Odd how so few cars do that these days.

Anyway, about the head unit. I've tried to make peace with it. I read the manual to learn all the functions and constantly reminded myself that it wasn't designed for me. Still, the way it works is just plain stupid. If I bought an FR-S I would pry that sucker out the day I got it home and replace it with something a little more usable, which would be pretty much anything.
