2011 Vollkswagen Jetta TDI: The Opposite of Intuitive

Ok, this is admittedly picky, but since the Jetta's time is almost up here I figured it worth a mention.

I've never liked the way you adjust this car's mirrors. The knob just isn't very intuitive. Turn it backward to adjust the right hand side, clockwise for the left and I'm not sure what leaving it in the middle does. Oh, and crank it all the way forward for heat. I wonder if anyone even noticed that's possible?

Add to that the fact that it unnecessarily clutters up the door and I rest my case. Just put it down on the dash somewhere and stick a rocker switch on it already.
